JavaGD - Java Graphics Device
Package R docs
NEWS/Changelog for JavaGD
o no functional changes, only minor packaging changes to appease
o update the device to be compatible with the upcoming changes
for R 4.1.0. Note that the new functionality (gradients,
masking paths etc.) is not yet implemented by the device, but
it will still work with the new graphics engine.
o fix a bug in resize that refused to resize if a device was
removed (closed) that was in the list before the JGD device.
(Thanks to Eugene Schava for reporting)
o minor updates in configure and dependencies
o clean up Windows version and remove dependency on WinRegistry
o change raster color space to sRGB
o add support for flush/hold

by Stephan Wahlbrink)
o add a namespace
o fixed a leak in StrWidth callback
o cleanup (registered entry points, .Call)
o minor cleanups to get rid of warnings
o add raster support
o copies WinRegistry.dll in the build directory so
it can be picked up by multi-arch installs.
o substitute $(JAVA_HOME) when testing JNI
o add UTF-8 conversion from native strings where
TextUTF8 is not used
o add a work-around for Windows where the Symbol font is
handled incorrectly and cannot be used directly.
This behavior can also be overridden by the
javagd.usesymbolfont property which can be set to true/false
(the default is false on Windows and true elsewhere).
o add support for multi-arch builds and Win64
o adapt to changes in R-devel (2.9.0-to-be)
o adapt to even more changes in R 2.7.0
o adapt to changes in R 2.7.0
o use Java configuration from R
o adapt to changes in R 2.5.0
o improve Windows compatibility
o fix a memory handling bug in MetricInfo
o minor fixes
o use rJava to load Java classes if native version fails
o minor memory leak fixes and cleanups
o rename functions to avoid conflicts with JavaGD
o Text using symbols (fontface=5) is re-coded to unicode in
UTF-8 encoding before it's passed to Java. The back-end now
displays symbols correctly.
