#506 closed Feature Request (wontfix)

OpenGL support

Description

This will improve both performance and look. Speaking about performance, I just catched a few slowdown in patchage, whose size was about 1200x600. Of course I don't used such amount of ports, which requires such size, but it is matter of time, say nothing about other users and other software (ingen).

FlowCanvas? is written to a Canvas library (namely FlowCanvas?). Porting to something like OpenGL (which is not a Canvas) would essentially be a complete rewrite, and is not feasible.

When an appropriate Canvas replacement comes along and becomes established as The(TM) replacement for GnomeCanvas? (Clutter looks good, but is a difficult port, Goocanvas likely an easier port, but not as awesome), I will switch to it, but this isn't a very high priority.
