Will window layering implementation [1] get fixed some day, so that all
professional software could be used with KDE?

we have considered officially announcing that KDE cannot be supported.

Their window managers do not implement an important part of the
Freedesktop standards for window layering. They have dismissed the bug
reports about this (which started with the GIMP, which had/has the same
problems) as "Will not fix". This is unacceptable. KDE is the only
platform to have no sane window layering implementation. Our code works
on Windows, OS X and with every other Linux desktop environment.
