History

#1 Updated by Vloeck almost 10 years ago

probably because of

Version 0.10.0 (2014-03-25)
(...)
  • Use the raster rendering engine by default on OSX (should improve performance)

#2 Updated by seezer over 9 years ago

if Vloeck is right, that would be 22c5ee283d275d03e86250ed214ac91868b8de26

I can confirm that switch back to native using "open Quassel\ Client.app -W --args -graphicssystem native" fixes this issue. And Quassel still seems perfectly snappy for me.

The reasoning for continuing to use the new engine can be seen here

If anyone knows how to detect retina so that we can use the native rendering engine on retina, that would be nice, but otherwise, a less than optimal display for some is the lesser of two evils when compared to the client being almost completely unusable for another subset of people.

Note: The performance issues of the native engine don't seem to affect everyone, but i'm definitely able to reproduce it.
