QNanoPainter has been now publicly available for about a month and during this time has seen some nice improvements. Gunnar first added Windows support, then worked on reducing QNanoQuickItemPainter creation time and memory consumption with multiple items. Niels and Jean-Michaël did some performance testing on Linux & NVIDIA shield, results discussed in issue 6 . Examples Gallery was restructured and now contains 3 examples: QNanoPainter Features, Mouse Event Boxes, and Freehand Painting. Here’s what they look on Nexus 6: (best viewed in HD ) So, if you are working with Qt5 and have a need for custom QQuickItems, I warmly recommend checking out QNanoPainter . Thanks to everyone involved!
