Radiance 5.0.0

October 29th, 2021

As detailed in the previous post, Radiance 5.0.0 is out now. It marks a fresh milestone for the Swing libraries I’ve been working on since 2004, and closes the first major chapter in the journey to unify and streamline the way Swing developers can integrate my libraries into their projects.

This document details the changes made to modules, packages and individual API classes.

The next major undertaking for Radiance is to move towards direct rendering with no offscreen bitmaps. That might take a bit longer than the usual 6-month cycle. Keep on eye on this tracker for the progress.
