[JAVA2D] JDK 1.5 and Java2D pipeline
I've been reading the thread so far, and am quite interested in the
imporvements that are in store for Java2D. Having worked quite a bit
with the 1.4 Java2D pipeline, I have some questions:
Will the OpenGL pipeline be enabled by default in the release version of
1.5? Will my older 1.4 programs take advantage of it right away?
Will images with transparency which are initialized once and then used
intensively for bilting from be invisibly promoted to system managed
VolitileImages, the way images without transparency currently are? Will
the JDK still handle Images and BufferedImages differently in this
respect? (Only Images are promoted; BufferedImages are not)
Are there any tips and tricks that will allow savvy developers gain
maximum performance from the J2D engine?
When will Java 1.5 be officially released? I've been getting really
excited aobut this realease, but don't want to upgrade until it's official.
