  • Feature New text rendering algorithm using SDF (Signed Distance Fields) (preview). Improved rendering quality, specially in 3D scenarios. Font hinting have been internally disabled. Performance of text rendering improved to be faster and consume less memory. Emojis no longer requiere a RGBA8 texture. Everything is rendered using A8.

  • Feature Support for subpixel font rendering (LCD) is back. For now only implemented in our reference D3D11 renderer. There is a new view flag to activate it, RenderFlags_LCD.

  • Feature Added CollectionSortBehavior and CollectionFilterBehavior to XAML Behaviors.

  • Feature Implemented StringFormat for ContentControl and HeaderedContentControl (#1263).

  • Enhancement Path rendering have been optimized to consume less memory.

  • Enhancement EASTL dependency removed. We have optimized all our architecture with custom containers. Memory performance vastly improved. Code bloating reduced by using less C++ features.

  • Enhancement Visual Studio .natvis for Noesis added.

  • Enhancement Performance of view Update and Rendering improved.

  • Enhancement Improved the antialiasing look of our PPAA algorithm.

  • Enhancement Placeholder text extension for TextBox, PasswordBox and ComboBox styles.

  • Enhancement Removed final keyword from interactivity classes so they can be extended.

  • Enhancement DependencyObject SetValue for strings optimized to avoid allocations.

  • Enhancement New function FrameworkElement.ApplyTemplate().

  • Enhancement New functions SetFontFallbacks and SetFontDefaultProperties added to IntegrationAPI.

  • API Breaking Changes:

  • NsRegisterComponent renamed to Noesis::RegisterComponent

  • TypeId metadata deprecated from reflection macros. Now, it is passed in the macro itself.

    NS_IMPLEMENT_REFLECTION_(Buttons::MainWindow, "Buttons.MainWindow")
  • Removed 'f' suffix from math classes (e.g. Vector3f renamed to Vector3).

  • Containers like NsVector and NsHashMap renamed to Vector and HashMap.

  • NsString renamed to String.

  • Access to ResourceDictionary values using const char* keys instead of obsolete IResourceKey.

  • Removed NeedsOffscreen from IRenderer. Now RenderOffscreen returns a boolean.

  • Removed SetIsPPAAEnabled and GetIsPPAAEnabled from IView. PPAA is now part of RenderFlags enumeration.

  • Noesis::GUI::Init() no longer receiving parameters, only the license-key.

  • Core library no longer provides a default theme or default font. It must be set at initialization time using SetApplicationResources. Our application framework provides a default theme that is being used by all our examples.

  • Custom RenderDevice implementations need to be upgraded with new shader for rendering distance fields.

  • View::Update() may block if enqueing many frames without doing Renderer::UpdateRenderTree() in the render thread.

  • SizeChangedEventArgs exposes now newSize and oldSize.

  • Fixed Hit-testing working correctly in all 3D scenarios.
  • Fixed Templates shouldn't be set without a valid VisualTree.
  • Fixed Unnecessary tessellations when changing items in ToolBar.
  • Fixed Binding with FindAncestor should search up the visual tree.
  • Fixed Stack overflow bringing TreeViewItem into view without PART_Header template element.
  • Fixed Duplicated reflection enum values for Key and ModifierKeys.
  • Fixed Crash when using unknown TargetName in a trigger Setter.
  • Fixed FrameworkElement FindResource not searching in BasedOn styles.
  • Fixed Focus visual layer not removed when focused element disabled or collapsed.
  • Fixed ScrollContentPresenter registered against ScrollChanged event multiple times.
  • Fixed Path's geometry FillRule being ignored.
  • Fixed MultiDataTrigger incorrectly executed when all conditions except the last one matched during initialization.
  • Fixed Button IsPressed being updated using DescendantBounds instead of RenderSize as in WPF.
  • Fixed ItemsControl ContainerFromElement crashing for elements not inside the items control.
  • Fixed Opacity group clipped when bigger than surface size.
  • Fixed ListView not updating item text inherited properties.
  • Fixed Crash setting a null LayoutTransform.
  • Fixed Crash reloading managed assembly when destroying proxies (#1577).
  • Fixed IsFocusEngagementEnabled now indicates if Control supports focus engagement to match UWP.
  • Fixed ItemsControl and derived no longer have IsFocusEngagementEnabled by default to match UWP.
