Description

Hi,

Could you please support hardware-accelerated scaling for those graphics card that can do it?

It would consume less CPU resources than software scaling.

Thanks.

We used to have an OpenGL backend which allowed for HW accelerated scaling, but we dropped it (and have no plans whatsoever to re-add it), because

1) Nobody was maintining it 2) It was riddled with bugs 3) It didn't really offer any noticable speedup compared to e.g. Scale2x 4) The simple bilinear filtering you get this way doesn't look nearly as good as the special 256 color scalers we already provide
