I posted a question regarding being about to draw rotated text (by any
number of degrees) on the canvas. The only solution that I got was to use
Java2D to draw to an SWT image.

Is there any plans to have a 2D Graphics API in SWT for drawing to the
canvas? Without this it is difficult (if not impossible) to create certain
custom components in SWT.

We are looking into improving SWT graphics.

I agree. We would like to create some custom components that would
allow us to port from Swing to SWT. However, without an SWT equiv for
Java2D, we're not able to do it as of now. This is in part due to a bug
with using SWT and AWT (java2d) on OSX which is already in bugzilla.

No problem really at this point though. We'll stick with our Swing
implementation and revisit the feasibility of an SWT port in the future
if need be.
