In this article, I want to present my experiences in writing a new prototype for a replacement of the document model in WonderBrush and how it is manipulated and rendered asynchronously."

Sounds overly complicated

Sounds like what this is doing is more complicated than it needs to be. Single-threaded drawing apps have been working for ages without significant lag. All this snapshotting likely increases the memory overhead for minimal speed benefit versus WonderBrush-esque apps on other OSes.
