Hello

During the last year a new VCL drawing backed has been implemented in LibreOffice using the Skia library. In addition to CPU-based raster rendering Skia is capable also of GPU-accelerated drawing using the modern Vulkan API. Currently only implemented for Windows and for the X11 gen backend, Skia provides the possibility to have a unified modern drawing across all platforms, replacing a number of drawing methods currently used by LibreOffice, many based on old drawing APIs. This talk will present the current Skia-based implementation and possible future work.
