Libart supports a very powerful imaging model, basically the same as SVG
and the Java 2D API. It includes all PostScript imaging operations, and

Libart is also highly tuned for incremental rendering. It contains data
structures and algorithms suited to rapid, precise computation of Region
of Interest, as well as a two-phase rendering pipeline optimized for
interactive display.
