Mazatech has released the second technology preview of their AmanithVG engine, a commercial cross-platform implementation of OpenVG 1.0 for accelerated vector graphics. AmanithVG is entirely built on top of OpenGL (from 1.1 to 2.0, using extensions where available) and OpenGL ES (1.1 and 2.0) APIs. Using these pipelines, AmanithVG can provide high quality accelerated vector graphics on any kind of 3D chipset already available on the market, achieving tens of times faster performance than software rasterizers. The new tech preview includes the VGU 1.0, an improved geometric engine, a configuration file for controlling performance based on hardware features, and a set of extensions for complex blend modes, color ramps, enhanced caps styles and more.
