Visual Class Libraries

making LibreOffice's toolkit less awful.

Hear about the huge improvements we made in VCL in the last year.

Come hear about the work on the Visual Class Library (VCL) in the last year - the bottom of the cross-platform graphics system that LibreOffice is built on. See how we've re-factored the per-platform backends, improved the lifecycle mechanism (VclPtr), re-vamped our main-loop (the idle handler re-work) as well as many other long overdue improvements. Also hear about how we're using OpenGL to accelerate rendering and improve quality.
