Alt+Tab dialog previews are scaled poorly. I don't know if it is for performance, but I hope it could be better. See attached screenshots.

This the best scaling that XRender offers. You /could/ achieve the result you expect by using gdkpixbuf but that's way too slow on some hardware.
Comment 3 Olivier Fourdan editbugs 2015-05-26 09:02:49 CEST
Note that you can enable gdk pixbuf with a few tweaks in the code.

See http://git.xfce.org/xfce/xfwm4/tree/src/icons.c?h=xfce-4.12#n580

and the comment line 595 and 596.
Comment 4 Lorenzo S. 2015-05-26 22:48:37 CEST
It worked! Great. Maybe it can be a default-disabled option.
Comment 5 Kevin Nadaud 2015-11-14 18:32:20 CET
Create an option for that may be interesting because I do not know where comment those two lines.
