We started a GFX routine rewrite of the Aros based ApolloOS.

The new written GFX routines are now 3-4 times faster.

Workbench speed is greatly improved by this.
Opaque window move is nice and smooth.

I know there's a long way to go but its great that things are moving so fast and in a true Amiga direction.

Great work! This is the way, and you know it better than anyone.

Sound like you did some of the code optimization yourself in assembly, nice.
