The kwin future with wayland

Hi there peeps!

I really love KDE, but I am experiencing a high CPU usage with the kwin_wayland process on KDE versions 5 and 6, on any distro. Opensuse, Fedora, Silverblue, Manjaro, Kubuntu, KDE Neon, on a 13th gen CPU and iGPU.

I know that it is very early for Wayland, but I also know that Kwin is an important piece that exist since a long time now.

I would like to understand if there is any plan to upgrade even more Kwin, knowing that it cannot be replaced. I see that a lot has been fixed like
or bug.cgi?id=479126

But I still have this situation. Yes, I am using X11 already as a fallback, but I would still like to know if there is any plan to improve with Wayland. Thanks!

Yep, most developers are on Wayland full-time now, and performance is something we constantly target for improvement.
