Looks like Skia Graphics Library dropped support
for some features and LC9 will not show anymore
these types of gradients:
'XY', 'SqrtXY', 'Diamond' and 'Spiral'
and most of these legacy Blend Modes:
clear, noop, notSrcAnd, notSrcAndReverse,
notSrcCopy, notSrcOr, notSrcOrReverse,
notSrcXor, reverse, set, srcAnd,
srcAndReverse, srcCopy, srcOr,
srcOrReverse, srcXor, blend, addPin
addOver, subPin, transparent
adMin, addMax

If you check all paint features available
from Skia Library: https://skia.org/user/api/skpaint
there are many useful features that LC9
could implement, like:
setTextScaleX (and setTextScaleY)
SkPathEffect
SkLine2DPathEffect
SkDiscretePathEffect
SkComposePathEffect
SkSumPathEffect
Two-Point Conical Gradient Shader
Fractal Perlin Noise Shader
Turbulence Perlin Noise Shader
Compose Shader
Blur Mask Filter

Could LC implement first some of
these Skia features like Perlin Noise
and Blur filter?
