Flicker free Gtk+ continued

Remember my preview of subwindowless Gtk+? It got rid of some flicker, but it was still pretty raw.

I’ve been working on a new version of the subwindowless patch, and today I implemented a cool trick that gives fully flicker-free subwindow move/resize:

This video is done with the same kind of increased X latency as the previous ones, but no flickering is detectable.

  1. Nice! Looks much faster/smoother resizing now!

    Question: does this make animating Gtk+ viable (like delayed transitions for resizing, moving, etc.)?

  2. Oh my God, I can’t believe this is finally happening. I’ve been raging about this for years and now you’re making change happen. Thank you.
