Develant Technologies today announced the immediate availability of <a href="http://www.gapidraw.com/">GapiDraw 4.1</a>, a significant update to their highly popular Windows Mobile graphics platform GapiDraw! GapiDraw can be downloaded and purchased online at http://www.gapidraw.com
New features in GapiDraw 4.1 include:
Xperia Panel Framework.
A new multithreaded framework for creating Sony Ericsson Xperia panels! The new class CGapiPanelApplication is a robust and production proven version of CGapiApplication that fully conforms to the Sony Ericsson panel interface guidelines. Using GapiDraw you can run the same code either as a separate executable file (to help debugging) or as an Xperia panel DLL (for release).
Xperia Panel Sample Application
. GapiDraw 4.1 ships with a new sample application that shows you how you can set up your Xperia panel applications to compile to both a panel DLL as well as a separate executable file, using the same source code. This sample application uses the new GapiPanelApplication framework.
We have added a new option to CGapiSurface::GradientRect you can use to add variable dithering to gradients. You can specify if and how much dithering you want on your gradients. As with all other GapiDraw functions this dithering is very fast and can be done on each frame.
GapiDraw is sold as a royalty free, all-platforms, perpetual site license. This means that:
* There are no royalty fees for using GapiDraw.
* You can create and sell as many applications as you want.
