LibreOffice drawing using Skia

This below is a screenshot of my LibreOffice build using the Skia library.
Now, admittedly, this looks way better than it should, as it is actually still far from finished. It is so far X11-only, using the venerable not-that-performant XPutImage(). No Windows, no Vulkan. Yet. Also, while it passes all VCL unit tests, that rather says something about the poor state of coverage of those tests, as they fail to hit any of those abort() calls I still have in a number of places. Well, maybe I should rather post the screenshot from yesterday:


  1. Thanks for your great work. BTW, does skia better than cairo?

  2. Really awesome - hopefully it will replace the OpenGL Backend soon (which is awefully slow)
