@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

@dpwrussell Awesome! I'll take a look (though it might not be until tomorrow). I'm very excited about the possibility!

@iangilman That would be great. We'd like to get on the right tack to make it easy and compatible with what is there already so getting your input would be highly valued.

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

Indeed. Lots to think about!
