The Pixman software renderer has been merged into wlroots!

github.com/swaywm/wlroots/pull

There's still a lot of optimization work to be done, and it doesn't yet work with the DRM backend, but it's a good first step :)

@emersion What's the difference to llvmpipe? Isn't hw rendering through the GPU the normal way?

@bionade24 llvmpipe is super slow. The Pixman renderer is to be used when there's no GPU or GPU driver available.
