Milestone Release Notes
This page includes a list of high level updates for each milestone release.
SkYUVAInfo now has separate enums for division of channels among planes and the subsampling. The previous combined enum, PlanarConfig, is deprecated. https://review.skia.org/334102
Simplified SkDeferredDisplayListRecorder promise image API. Removed "release" callback and renamed "done" callback to "release". The new "release" proc can be null. Added a new SkYUVAInfo-based factory for YUVA promise texture images and deprecated the old SkYUVAIndex-based one. https://review.skia.org/331836 https://review.skia.org/333519
Limit the types and intrinsics supported in SkRuntimeEffect to GLSL ES 1.00 https://review.skia.org/332597
Add AVIF support to SkHeifCodec.
Add support for creating SkSurfaceCharacterizations directly for use by a GrVkSecondaryCBDrawContext. https://review.skia.org/331877
Removed SkSurfaceProps::kLegacyFontHost_InitType, SkFontLCDConfig, and related code. The default pixel geometry for SkSurfaceProps is now kUnknown instead of kRGB_H. The removal was guarded by the SK_LEGACY_SURFACE_PROPS build flag which was later removed. https://review.skia.org/322490 https://review.skia.org/329364
Legacy 8-bit YUV interface removed from SkImageGenerator. Use more flexible SkYUVAPixmaps- based interface instead. https://review.skia.org/327917
New variant of SkImage::MakeFromYUVATextures. Takes a new type GrYUVATextures which wraps an SkYUVAInfo and compatible set of GrBackendTextures. The provides a more complete and structured specification of the planar configuration. Previous version is deprecated. Already deprecated MakeFromYUVATexturesCopyToExternal added to replace other deprecated APIs. It's not recommended that clients use this and instead use the pattern described in the API comment. https://review.skia.org/317762 https://review.skia.org/329956
Add field to GrContextOptions to disable mipmap support even if the backend supports it.
SkTPin() removed from public API.
GrVkImageInfo now has a field for sample count. GrBackendRenderTarget constructor that took both a GrVkImageInfo and separate sample count is deprecated. Use the version without sample count instead. Similarly, GrD3DTextureResourceInfo now has a sample count field and GrBackendRenderTarget no longer takes a separate sample count for Direct3D. The sample count for GrBackendRenderTarget is now directly queried from MtlTexture rather than passed separately. The version that takes a separate sample count is deprecated and the parameter is ignored. https://review.skia.org/320262 https://review.skia.org/320757 https://review.skia.org/320956
Added deprecation warning for Metal support on MacOS 10.13, iOS 8.3, and older. https://review.skia.org/320260
GrVkImageInfo now has a field for sample count. GrBackendRenderTarget constructor that took both a GrVkImageInfo and separate sample count is deprecated. Use the version without sample count instead.
Update SkClipOp::kMax_EnumValue to include only intersect and difference when SK_SUPPORT_DEPRECATED_CLIPOPS is not defined. https://review.skia.org/320064
Add support for external allocator for Direct3D 12 backend. Defines base classes for an allocation associated with a backend texture and a a memory allocator to create such allocations. Adds memory allocator to backend context. https://review.skia.org/317243
Add new optional parameter to GrContext::setBackend[Texture/RenderTarget]State which can be used to return the previous GrBackendSurfaceMutableState before the requested change. https://review.skia.org/318698
New optimized clip stack for GPU backends. Enabled by default but old behavior based on SkClipStack can be restored by defining SK_DISABLE_NEW_GR_CLIP_STACK when building. It is not compatible with SK_SUPPORT_DEPRECATED_CLIPOPS and we are targeting the removal of support for the deprecated, expanding clip ops. https://review.skia.org/317209
GPU backends now properly honor the SkFilterQuality when calling drawAtlas. https://review.skia.org/313081
The signature of 'main' used with SkRuntimeEffect SkSL has changed. There is no longer an 'inout half4 color' parameter, effects must return their color instead. Valid signatures are now 'half4 main()' or 'half4 main(float2 coord)'. https://review.skia.org/310756
New YUVA planar specifications for SkCodec, SkImageGenerator, SkImage::MakeFromYUVAPixmaps. Chroma subsampling is specified in more structured way. SkCodec and SkImageGenerator don't assume 3 planes with 8bit planar values. Old APIs are deprecated. https://review.skia.org/309658 https://review.skia.org/312886 https://review.skia.org/314276 https://review.skia.org/316837 https://review.skia.org/317097
Added VkImageUsageFlags to GrVkImageInfo struct.
Remove support for 'in' variables from SkRuntimeEffect. API now exclusively refers to inputs as 'uniforms'. https://review.skia.org/309050
SkImage:remove DecodeToRaster, DecodeToTexture https://review.skia.org/306331
Add GrContext api to update compressed backend textures. https://review.skia.org/302265
Rename GrMipMapped to GrMipmapped for consistency with new APIs. Also rename GrBackendTexture::hasMipMaps() to GrBackendTexture::hasMipmaps() https://review.skia.org/304576 https://review.skia.org/304598
Add option for clients to own semaphores after wait calls. https://review.skia.org/301216
Remove obsolete GrFlushFlags. https://review.skia.org/298818
Adds default flush() calls to SkSurface, SkImage, and GrContext. These calls do a basic flush without a submit. If you haven't updated Skia in a couple releases and still have flush() calls in your code that you expect to do a flush and submit, you should update all those to the previously added flushAndSubmit() calls instead. https://review.skia.org/299141
Enable BackendSemaphores for the Direct3D backend. https://review.skia.org/298752
Added SkImage:asyncRescaleAndReadPixels and SkImage::asyncRescaleAndReadPixelsYUV420 https://review.skia.org/299281
Ganesh is moving towards replacing GrContext with the GrDirectContext/GrRecordingContext pair. GrDirectContexts have direct access to the GPU and are very similar to the old GrContext. GrRecordingContexts are less powerful contexts that lack GPU access but provided context-like utilities during DDL recording. SkSurfaces and SkCanvas will now only return GrRecordingContexts. Clients requiring context features that need GPU access can then check (via GrRecordingContext::asDirectContext) if the available recording context is actually a direct context.
Replace #defined values in SkString with equivalent constexprs. http://review.skia.org/306160
Added GrContext::oomed() which reports whether Skia has seen a GL_OUT_OF_MEMORY error from Open GL [ES] or VK_ERROR_OUTOF*_MEMORY from Vulkan. https://review.skia.org/298216
Add option on SkSurface::flush to pass in a GrBackendSurfaceMutableState which we will set the gpu backend surface to be at the end of the flush. https://review.skia.org/295567
Add GrContext function to set mutable state on a backend surface. Currently this is only used for setting vulkan VkImage layout and queue family. https://review.skia.org/293844
SkSurface factores that take GrBackendTexture or GrBackendRenderTarget now always call the release proc (if provided) on failure. SkSurface::replaceBackendTexture also calls the release proc on failure. https://review.skia.org/293762
SkSurface::asyncRescaleAndReadPixels and SkSurfaceasyncRescaleAndReadPixelsYUV420 now require explicit GrContext submit to guarantee finite time before callback is invoked. https://review.skia.org/292840
Add VkSharingMode field to GrVkImageInfo. https://review.skia.org/293559
Move SkBitmapRegionDecoder into client_utils/android.
SkCanvas.clear and SkCanvas.drawColor now accept SkColor4f in addition to SkColor.
Remove SkSurface::MakeFromBackendTextureAsRenderTarget. This factory existed to work around issues with GL_TEXTURE_RECTANGLE that existed in Chrome's command buffer. Those issues have since been resolved. Use SkSurface::MakeFromBackendTexutre or SkSurface::MakeFromBackendRenderTarget instead. https://review.skia.org/292719
Adds submittedProc callback to GrFlushInfo which will be called when the work from the flush call is submitted to the GPU. This is specifically useful for knowing when semahpores sent with the flush have been submitted and can be waiting on. https://review.skia.org/291078
GrContext submit is now required to be called in order to send GPU work to the actual GPU. The flush calls simply produces 3D API specific objects that are ready to be submitted (e.g. command buffers). For the GL backend, the flush will still send commands to the driver. However, clients should still assume the must call submit which is where any glFlush that is need for sync objects will be called. There, are flushAndSubmit() functions of GrContext, SkSurface, and SkImage that will act like the previous flush() functions. This will flush the work and immediately call submit. https://review.skia.org/289033
Remove deprecated version of flush calls on GrContext and SkSurface. https://review.skia.org/2290540
SkCanvas::drawVertices and drawPatch now support mapping an SkShader without explicit texture coordinates. If they're not supplied, the local positions (vertex position or patch cubic positions) will be directly used to sample the SkShader. https://review.skia.org/290130
Add api on GrContext, updateBackendTexture that will upload new data to a GrBackendTexture. https://review.skia.org/288909
Add GrContext getter to SkSurface. https://review.skia.org/289479
Deprecate GrContext and SkSurface flush() call and replace ith with flushAndSubmit(). This only effects the default flush call that takes no parameters. https://review.skia.org/289478
GrContext::createBackendTexture functions that initialize the texture no longer guarantee that all the data has been uploaded and the gpu is done with the texture. Instead the client can assume the upload work has been submitted to the gpu and they must wait for that work to finish before deleting the texture. This can be done via their own synchronization or by passing in a finish proc into the create calls which will be called when it is safe to delete the texture (at least in terms of work done during the create). https://review.skia.org/286517
Remove unused SkMaskFilter helpers: compbine, compose Note: shadermaskfilter will likely be removed next (clipShader should serve)
Add back SkCanvas::kPreserveLCDText_SaveLayerFlag to indicate that saveLayer() will preserve LCD-text. All text in the layer must be drawn on opaque background to ensure correct rendering.
Add the new directory client_utils/ for code that is specific to a single client and should be considered separate from Skia proper. Move SkFrontBufferedStream into the subdir android/.
SkBitmap and SkPixmap's erase() methods now treat their color parameters consistently with the rest of Skia, with all SkColors and any untagged SkColor4fs interpreted as sRGB, not as a color in the bitmap's color space. SkPixmap::erase(SkColor4f) now takes an SkColorSpace, so you can pass pixmap.colorSpace() if you want the old behavior.
SkCamera.h and SkMatrix44.h are DEPRECATED. Use SkM44 if you want to have 3d transformations.
Changed Dilate and Erode image filters to take SkScalar for radius instead of int. While the image filters themselves are defined in terms of discrete pixels, the radii provided by the user are mapped through the CTM so taking ints forced over discretization. After mapping through the CTM the radii are now rounded to pixels. https://review.skia.org/281731 https://review.skia.org/282636
Updated the contract of GrContext and SkSurface flush calls in regards to semaphores. Made it clear that the caller is responsible for deleting any initialized semaphores after the flush call regardless if we were able to submit them or not. Also, allows skia to only submit a subset of the requested semaphores if we failed to create some. https://review.skia.org/282265
SkCanvas::drawVertices will now always fill the triangles specified by the vertices. Previously, vertices with no colors and no (texture coordinates or shader) would be drawn in wireframe. https://review.skia.org/282043
Remove localmatrix option from SkShaders::[Blend, Lerp]
Fill out Direct3D parameters for backend textures and backend rendertargets.
SkImage::makeTextureImage() takes an optional SkBudgeted param
Made non-GL builds of GPU backend more robust. https://review.skia.org/277456
MoltenVK support removed. Use Metal backend instead. https://review.skia.org/277612
Removed drawBitmap and related functions from SkDevice; all public drawBitmap functions on SkCanvas automatically wrap the bitmap in an SkImage and call the equivalent drawImage function. Drawing mutable SkBitmaps will now incur a mandatory copy. Switch to using SkImage directly or mark the bitmap as immutable before drawing.
Removed "volatile" flag from SkVertices. All SkVertices objects are assumed to be volatile (the previous default behavior).
Removed exotic legacy bitmap functions from SkCanvas (drawBitmapLattic, drawBitmapNine); the exotic SkImage functions still exist.
Make it possible to selectively turn on/off individual encoders/decoders, using skiause(libpng/libjpeg_turbo/libwebp)(decode/encode).
Removed GrGpuResource, GrSurface, and GrTexture from public api. These were not meant to be public, and we now can move them into src. Also removed getTexture function from SkImage.h
Removed Bones from SkVertices
Added a field to GrContextOptions that controls whether GL errors are checked after GL calls that allocate textures, etc. It also controls checking for shader compile success, and program linking success.
Made SkDeferredDisplayList.h officially part of the public API (i.e., moved it to include/core). Also added a ProgramIterator to SkDeferredDisplayList which allows clients to pre-compile some of the shaders the DDL requires.
Added two new helper methods to SkSurfaceCharacterization: createBackendFormat and createFBO0. These make it easier for clients to create new surface characterizations that differ only a little from an existing surface characterization.
Removed SkTMax and SkTMin.
Removed SkTClamp and SkClampMax.
Removed SkScalarClampMax and SkScalarPin.
Removed SkMax32 and SkMin32.
Removed SkMaxScalar and SkMinScalar.
SkColorSetA now warns if the result is unused.
An SkImageInfo with a null SkColorSpace passed to SkCodec::getPixels() and related calls is treated as a request to do no color correction at decode time.
Add new APIs to add attributes to document structure node when creating a tagged PDF.
Remove CGFontRef parameter from SkCreateTypefaceFromCTFont. Use CTFontManagerCreateFontDescriptorFromData instead of CGFontCreateWithDataProvider to create CTFonts to avoid memory use issues.
Added SkCodec:: and SkAndroidCodec::getICCProfile for reporting the native ICC profile of an encoded image, even if it doesn't map to an SkColorSpace.
SkSurface::ReplaceBackendTexture takes ContentChangeMode as a parameter, which allow callers to specify whether retain a copy of the current content.
Enforce the existing documentation in SkCanvas::saveLayer that it ignores any mask filter on the restore SkPaint. The 'coverage' of a layer is ill-defined, and masking should be handled by pre-clipping or using the auxiliary clip mask image of the SaveLayerRec.
Added support for GL_NV_fence extension.
Make SkImageInfo::validRowBytes require rowBytes to be pixel aligned. This makes SkBitmap match the behavior of raster SkSurfaces in rejecting non-aligned rowBytes.
Added an SkImage::MakeRasterFromCompressed entry point. Also updated SkImage::MakeFromCompressed to decompress the compressed image data if the GPU doesn't support the specified compression type (i.e., macOS Metal doesn't support BC1_RGB8_UNORM so such compressed images will always be decompressed on that platform).
Added support for BC1 RGBA compressed textures
Added CachingHint to SkImage::makeRasterImage
Add support to create an SkSurface from an MTKView, with delayed acquisition of the MTLDrawable. Entry point: SkSurface::MakeFromMTKView
Removed SkIRect::EmptyIRect(). Use SkIRect::MakeEmpty() instead. https://review.skia.org/262382/
Moved SkRuntimeEffect to public API. This is the new (experimental) interface to custom SkSL shaders and color filters.
Added BC1 compressed format support. Metal and Vulkan seem to only support the BC formats on desktop machines.
Added compressed format support for backend texture creation API. This adds the following new entry points: GrContext::compressedBackendFormat GrContext::createCompressedBackendTexture The latter method comes in variants that allow color-initialized and compressed texture data initialized.
Added SkMatrix::MakeTrans(SkIVector) https://review.skia.org/259804
Removed SkSize& SkSize::operator=(const SkISize&) https://review.skia.org/257880
SkISize width() and height() now constexpr https://review.skia.org/257680
Added SkMatrix::MakeTrans(SkVector) and SkRect::makeOffset(SkVector). https://review.skia.org/255782
Added SkImageInfo::MakeA8(SkISize) and added optional color space parameter to SkImageInfo::MakeN32Premul(SkISize).
Added dimensions() and getFrameCount() to SkAnimatedImage https://review.skia.org/253542
Removed SkMatrix44 version of toXYZD50 from SkColorSpace. Switched to skcms types in transferFn, invTrasnferFn, and gamutTransformTo functions. https://review.skia.org/252596
Removed rotation and YUV support from SkColorMatrix https://review.skia.org/252188
Added kBT2020_SkYUVColorSpace. This is BT.2020's YCbCr conversion (non-constant-luminance). https://review.skia.org/252160

Added support for PQ and HLG transfer functions to SkColorSpace. https://review.skia.org/249000
Added new api on GrContext ComputeImageSize. This replaces the hold static helper ComputeTextureSize. https://review.skia.org/247337
New versions of SkSurface async-rescale-and read APIs that allow client to extend the lifetime of the result data. Old versions are deprecated. https://review.skia.org/245457
Add SkColorInfo. It's dimensionless SkImageInfo. https://review.skia.org/245261
Added SkPixmap-based createBackendTexture method to GrContext. This allows clients to create backend resources (initialized with texture data) that Skia/Ganesh doesn't know about/track. https://review.skia.org/244676
Add explicit src and dst colorspace parameters to SkColorFilter::filterColor4f() https://review.skia.org/244882
Remove Vulkan/Metal float32 RGBA texture support https://review.skia.org/244881
