… goes in small but significant steps. Mouse dragging works now, as well as gradients (dunno, this seems to be gratis with the rendering pipeline, I haven’t implemented one bit for gradients). I can run real Swing apps already, and the things that work show awesome performance. I really think Escher’s performance is a killer, because it avoids JNI calls almost completely, and doesn’t need the buffer pipeline for that (like the OpenGL pipeline). It simply talks efficiently with the X server directly. Obviously, one missing piece is transparent images, I will add that next. Code is still on my server, as we still have no OpenJDK project yet.
