Caciocavallo prototype

Today I finally solved a non-existant problem, and can finally show some stuff from the OpenJDK challenge work:

The demo already works quite well and performance is reasonable. Of course, there are still many quirks and etches, and the fonts look like crap. Not sure yet, why the fonts look so ugly, I have to find this out. This is using OpenJDK rendering pipeline and does all the rendering in pure Java (over Escher).

    Great Roman, good progress.
    Can you already estimate the performance?

    Sebastian: I haven’t done any measurements yet, but it feels quite fast. That doesn’t mean much though, on a >1.5GHz desktop 😉 Generally speaking performance shouldn’t be a big difference from Classpath’s Escher peers.
