In the context of a discussion on another subject, the addition of new features in the preferences menu were mentioned.
Can somebody point me in the right direction to find out the purpose, function and use fo the following features?

vertex-object-renderers
vertex-object_renderers-indexing
vertex-object-renderers-direct
vertex-object-renderers-prealloc

Thanks in advance!

Its an optimization for the preview renderer: vertex object refers to
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vertex_buffer_object
Original PR for reference: https://github.com/openscad/openscad/pull/1935

The main important one is just the top "vertex-object-renderers" which
enables it in general.  The others are sub-features which were meant to
test out a few options/combinations to see which was optimal.  I don't
recall the exact results of testing those, but I think there wasn't much
noticeable difference between only enabling the top option versus enabling
all 4.
