the new HUD system is very nice.
Unfortunately I can't make it work in my plugins.
I have tried to use it inside TagData::Draw, but there are nothing visible.
How to use ViewportHUD and new functions from BaseDraw, especially DrawTexture(...) and LineStrip(...).
LineStrip(...) seems to be some kind of fast Line2D(...) or Line3D(...)?

Your guess is as good as mine at this point; I haven't played around with the new functions very much. I think you need to draw HUD-like features in the highlight layer. I'll see if I can get it work myself and get back to you.
Hopefully I'm more up-to-date with the new features when the real application is released; I will have to be anyway to document it all.

Thank Mikael, this was helpful.
DrawTexture works now, but LineStrip not.

Will the new SDK support frameless or borderless windows that support UserAreas?

Not that I've seen. In particular, the HUD layer doesn't support user areas.

No raw OGL context?

No. (I guess it would be pretty hard to do that without any cross-platform or software mode issues, just like we can't get a HWND to the C4D window.)
