    Wow, that was quick. It'll be interesting to see if the Vulkan backend actually offers any performance improvements.

      Sounds like you are a fanboi - It will be interesting to see how the EGL backend goings and whether or not they run into the same bugs as KDE

        I agree! I wonder what sort of power savings might be possible...

          For now no performance improvement.

            BTW KDE 5.8 was just released a few months ago. A great start for long term support on KDE. Now available on most dists, including Debian.
            fixed.

            EDIT: fixed again.

              A few weeks ago? Months would be more correct.

                I think i will move to gnome, they are doing good work now. KDE lack of supporting EGL/Streams and buggy plasma desktop is starting to lose my patience with it.
