Skia 2D library now available to PlayBook developers

The Skia 2D graphics library is now available on GitHub from RIM.

According to a quick Wikipedia search, The Skia Graphics Engine is a compact open source graphics library written in C++. It was originally developed by Skia Inc., which was subsequently acquired by Google in 2005,[1] who then released the software as open source licensed under the New BSD License free software license.

The guys over at OpenBBNews state:

"one key feature of this version of the library is the inclusion of hardware acceleration for many drawing operations.

For a more extensive overview of Skia’s capabilities a detailed wiki page has also been added."

If you are a developer, head over to OpenBBNews to read more about the Skia Library PlayBook port.
