Can someone recommend a good 2D graphics library (preferably hardware-accelerated) as an alternative to GDI+? I need much of the same vector-based functionality, including specifying line caps, and fill textures (/ brushes) too. It's not specifically a games-related question, but after no luck on the MSDN C# forum, I figured this would be a better place to ask. :) One alternative I've found is the .NET C# port of Antigrain Geometry, but I want to know my options. Thanks in advance.

No replies? :(

I've read up a lot on OpenVG which sounds ideal. However, I don't know if there is a .NET version available, or the steps I'd need to take to ensure it works in C#.

Any pointers? Please? :)

Could just be no one knows of any. I have seen this same question asked a few times, but don't remember ever seeing any decent answer.

Doesn't SilverLight use vector-based rendering? If so, would that work for you? Keep in mind I have never used it and don't know a whole lot about it. I only really know about it from Machaira mentioning it a few hundred times. ;)

Does WPF fit your needs? AFAIK, it's supposed to replace GDI+ in Windows and is hardware accelerated.

OpenVG looks pretty cool. Right now, the only 2D vector stuff I'm doing in C# is Tao.OpenGL+Rsvg+Gdk (which is cross-platform). It seems to work fairly well, I did it for my start of the 4E6 contest, but ran out of time (and steam) before I could really polish it. But, it does work.
