NVIDIA prepares XWayland OpenGL/Vulkan acceleration support

NVIDIA’s Wayland support is finally coming together albeit long overdue with DMA-BUF passing support and now patches pending against XWayland for supporting OpenGL and Vulkan hardware acceleration with their proprietary driver.

Pending patches to the X.Org Server’s XWayland code paired with a yet-to-be-released proprietary driver update finally allow for hardware accelerated rendering with XWayland.

NVIDIA is really holding Wayland back, so it’s good to see progress on this front.
