Cairo Release 1.2.2 now available
Posted on: 08/09/2006 01:28 PM

A new cairo release 1.2.2 is now available from:

This is the first bug fix release in the 1.2 series since the original 1.2.0 release made six weeks ago.

There were some very serious bugs in the 1.2.0 release, (see below), so everybody is encouraged to upgrade from 1.2.0 to 1.2.2. The 1.2.2 release maintains source and binary compatibility with 1.2.0 and does not make any API additions.

I'd like to thank everybody who has done so much to make this release possible. Some people have their names associated with fixes below, but many more people have been just as valuable in testing and reporting bugs. And I'd like to extend special recognition to the people who have been patient with some major failures in cairo 1.2.0!

At the risk of neglecting the dozens of people who have done so much, I do want to mention two people in particular:

First, Behdad Esfahbod has put an untold number of hours into this release, with over 80 commits since the 1.2.0 release just a few weeks ago. His efforts are often behind-the-scenes improving the Makefiles and the test suites so that everyone working on cairo can do so more smoothly and easily. Thanks Behdad!

Second, I'd like to extend a special welcome to Adrian Johnson who has recently started working on cairo and immediately started contributing very valuable improvement. His work has focused on the printing backends, (particularly in the area of font subsetting), which are much better for his efforts. Welcome Adrian!
