Long awaited ilixi release is here; it is optimised and production ready (thanks to DirectFB's core developers).
There are updates and fixes to rendering and look-and-feel, e.g. we dropped cairo rendering of widgets and instead used blitting for better performance. We plan to add cairo support back again as an alternative in the future.
Some new features are:
- Platform manager which helps specify options for layer and window use
- i18n support via gettext
- Main loop customisation
- Sound effects (either via compositor component or application itself)
- 2D transformations
- Font caching and fontconfig support
- Input helper for character based languages (currently only wnn is supported)
The new ilixi 1.0.0 release is available from here.
