Win2D

Win2D is a new open source 2D drawing library for C++ and C# for Windows apps built on the Universal Windows Platform. It takes the performance and control of low-level DirectX graphics APIs and exposes them in a more abstracted and easy to use manner as expected by .NET developers. Using Win2D you can easily draw, manipulate and animate beautiful 2D graphics, including geometry, text, images, image effects, and much more. You can also seamlessly integrate this content into your XAML or CoreWindow-based application.
