Hi Rene,  

I have decided for the coming 2006 RHIC run to move the STAR OnlineDisplay to the recent ROOT and faced the TShape::Paint method that STAR event display has been heavy relying on for the last 5 years doesn't exist anymore !!!


This feature was part of the ROOT since 1995. One can not render TShape object anymore (Even with TCanvas !!!) .What was the technical reason to remove the functionality the ROOT users have been relying for the last 10 years.  

Is there any plan to restore it or STAR has to live with the old ROOT version forever (I don't think we have a man-power and courage to redesign things from the scratch) ?    

Thank you  

Best Regards
