Escher 0.3 released

Today I released the Escher library, version 0.3. This has long been overdue. Here’s a quick list of changes:

  • Performance has been greatly enhanced. This required an almost complete rewrite of the innards, but is really blazingly fast now ;-).
  • Image, pixmap, window property and fonts support have been significantly improved.
  • The render extension has been extended for glyph support.
  • API has been cleaned up, making many public methods private that shouldn’t be public, hiding fields behind accessors, removing cruft and making use of Java5 language features.

You can find all the code at the project download page. Have fun.
