General anti-aliasing support

Recommended Posts

Is there any ongoing development for general anti-aliasing support for all graphic primitives/operations?

I know that the fonts do support aa-rendering.

General anti-aliasing is a hard thing. With some displays it is actually impossible. Anti-aliasing requires knowing the surrounding pixel values. If a display has no read back capability this obviously cannot happen. With text anti-aliasing on these types of displays we can still anti-alia but only if we are also filing the background.

So, any general anti-aliasing support will only ever be possible on certain types of display. This is the primary reason it had been low priority for us. There is just so much else to do.
