Hi there Mart,
thanks for your reply - i already implemented everything with wxWidgets
using wxGraphicsContext. When using it everything gets anti-aliased, but the
most ways of loading / displaying graphics is not(!) supported, so the
screen remains blank.
Everyone knows of this problem but it doesnt look like they will develop it
soon - so someone told me I should try cairo for that, and now I'm here ;)
Kind regards, juergen

For your information, there is wxGraphicsContext and co in recent
versions, which can do anti-aliased drawing, and actually uses cairo to
do so on the *nix ports, and I believe it can or will be possible to use
it selectively on other ports too, instead of their native stuff (GDI+,
That doesn't stop you from using cairo directly, of course.
I'm not fully up to date how complete wxGraphicsContext is now, so cairo
might be a good choice, especially if shipping it for other platforms,
than the ones where wxGTK runs, is not necessary or not a problem.
If necessary, you can ask around about wxGraphicsContext on wxWidgets
mailing lists as well.
Good luck with your project,
