Android BlurMaskFilter has no effect in canvas.drawOval while text is blurred

Looks like a bug to me. I reported it to the Android team; we’ll see what they say.

It renders correctly if you set android:hardwareAccelerated="false" on your Activity in AndroidManifest.xml.

Here is the official word from the Android graphics team:
“BlurMaskFilter is not supported with hardware acceleration.”
