@iangilman Hi. A few months ago I mentioned we were interested in contributing webgl rendering to OSD. We've started work on that and it would be great to get some feedback on our proposed plan of action: openseadragon/openseadragon#1482
Yes, please, feedback from anyone working in this space would be very welcome. Especially with regards plugins. The notion of what can be thought of as the defined API of OSD is made somewhat fuzzy by having plugins that override prototypes literally anywhere.
Which could be problematic when adopting a new approach to rendering and trying to maintain backwards compatability with plugins
