      Note that this is a also perquisite for a performance improvement: "unredirecting" of non-fullscreen surfaces ("windows"). Depending on hardware capabilities, surfaces that are not covered by anything else can be uploaded to hardware planes, bypassing compositing (equivalent to hardware cursors). Weston does this already.

        I think that generally in case new devel gnome it would be good to fund some special award for that person who propose new versioning scheme.

            Those of you in the know, it is "Gnome 40" or "Gnome 3.40"? Or it should be 4.0?

                I don't mind the new versioning, but I think it's fun that they have chosen to avoid 4.0 to separate themselves from Gtk 4.0 and are still doing an upgrade that's generational rather than incremental. I know that they're still using Gtk 3, but on a UI/UX level this is Gnome 4

                  Hopefully on next Gnome major release they will introduce completely new and even more wonderful versioning scheme.
