@grokys I’ve got text rendering working mostly with my new Quartz Graphics backend! Just have to fix a few things, figure out why paths aren’t drawing, and get the render tests running correctly.

Fixed!
Pretty complex XAML in there, and OX2 is giving hard!

so, now .net core support is getting closer, or?

OmniXAML v2 supports it
By the way, is there any way to make Avalonia work in UWP? it could be really nice to use it in my Raspberry Pi 3 with Windows 10 IoT Core!

not supported currently iirc..
iirc you'll need OX v2first, and then make a drawing backedn to uwp...
asked about that a few days/weeks ago, and they said it should be fairly doable
but I decided to go with UWP itself...

listen, making a drawing backend for UWP should be easy
what' IIRC?

You need a windowing backend. And maybe a few modifications to the Direct2D drawing backend. Other than that everything should work on UWP

Any voluntary?
/all We need a UWP drawing backend. If you are brave enough, please consider it :)

We could catch a lot of attention from some communities. W10 IoT Core, Xbox, Store apps, Windows 10 Mobile...

Don't forget that I work for Microsoft Spain from time to time. I'm in touch with a lot of Windows Mobile owners :P

and don't forget that UWP applications are starting to get traction!
also, running Avalonia UI on a Raspberry Pi is invaluable. Oh boy!
