GTK4's GPU-accelerated GL renderer(s) got a major performance boost in the last few days! Previously it struggled to render simple UIs with single digit FPS on the Librem 5; now it can get pretty fancy :) #librem5 #gnome #gnomeonmobile #gtk
@lorabe phosh itself doesn't render that much, so maybe aside of smoother scrolling in app list it won't really matter for performance - the apps getting ported matter much more. Using GTK4 with GL in phosh will enable us to make it more fancy though, so it's still desirable.
However, we need something like https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gtk/-/merge_requests/2992 to get merged first before that can happen.

@dos yeah, many people desire posh to just feel smoother, IMO that would be a killer "feature".
I asume that from this point on, things will only improve.
