New version of .NETCF GDI+ Library

XcrossOne Studio have just released a new v1.2 release of their incredible looking GDI+ library for .NETCF. A key change in this release is a switch to a Shared Source license, similar to what we use with our OpenNETCF projects.

This means that you are no longer restricted to releasing any works using the code in source form, this should have a dramatic effect on the number of people able to use the library. You can achieve some pretty impressive visuals, as demonstrated in the large gallery of samples on the site. This latest version adds the ability to combine raster images and anti-aliased text with the vector based drawing.
