Will there be QCanvas support at some point? I know this has been asked before, but that just shows how important this is. In my opinion, it is the most dearly missed feature in the current version of Cascades. For my chess app (www.chess-wise.com) I have either been able to find work-arounds for missing classes, or have decided to leave features out in the BB 10 version. But without QCanvas, I fear that there will not even be a releasable version of Chess-wise.

Please like: https://www.blackberry.com/jira/browse/BBTEN-1
Each "like" stresses the importance of the feature.
I assume you've considered just using a container with a background image and icons you move. And also considered ForeignWindow and OpenGL.

Thanks. I have the basics of the app working in the simulator (game play, save/load game, download databases from a repository).
Using a static background image for the board is not an option, because the board contains extra information (coordinates, legal move indication, last played move indication, arrows indicating a choice between two moves) that needs to be drawn at run-time.
OpenGL is much too low-level. It doesn't make sense that all BB10 developers have to re-implement things like bezier paths.
