How load/show images from web

I'm tryng to start porting my QML application FlickrUp and it requires showing images thumbnails from Flickr to show something like this FlickrUp.

Question is which Cascades element to use to show thumbnails/images. ImageView is available but it gives error on loading images from web

I saw this post http://supportforums.blackberry.com/t5/Native-Development/Loading-image-from-URL/td-p/1717927

Is this the only way to show images in Cascades because it is kind of trivial. And the performance of app will suffer if I'll be using the given solution with hundreds of images.

Also, since the post is from May, is there some update on this?
