Re: Another performance patch....
Worst part for macOS is that we still need the patched overlay stuff for the legacy canvases.
There has been something added to master recently, but it unfortunately doesn’t work (it does, but is slow as hell).
I would be surprised if this gets usable for 3.1.
So, getting rid of legacy canvases (in pcbnew and eeschema) is probably the biggest step for also being able to use a stock wxWidgets an macOS.
The remainder is more or less just “cosmetic” stuff that will eventually get fixed (hopefully)...
wxPython is the next story then, as Adam said.
