A New Pipeline

Post Image

One of our enterprise developers started complaining about the performance of our Android port, which forced us to take a closer look at our rendering pipeline on Android. It seems that Google’s hardware acceleration broke pretty much all the best practices of the Android 2.x era and what we had wasn’t taking full advantage of “project butter” the ...

Pisces & String Picker

Post Image

Steve just released a very important cn1lib that effectively provides developers with elaborate low level graphics primitives to draw pretty much everything on all platforms.

We are already well under way with quite a few interesting features but most of them won't be landing for the next couple of weeks since we need the trunk to remain stable fo...
