A new cairo snapshot 1.1.4 is now available
This is the second in a series of snapshots working toward the upcoming 1.2 release of cairo. For a list of items still needing work on the cairo 1.2 roadmap, please see:cairo snapshot 1.1.4
In particular, note that it is still planned for the PDF backend to get page-resizing support before 1.2, (as PostScript receives here with the 1.1.4 snapshot).
This snapshot is backwards-compatible with the 1.0 series---it makes a few API additions but does not remove any API. See a few paragraphs below for details on what's new in 1.1.4.
What is cairo
Cairo is a 2D graphics library with support for multiple output devices. Currently supported output targets include the X Window System, win32, and image buffers. Experimental backends include OpenGL (through glitz), Quartz, XCB, PostScript and PDF file output.
Cairo is designed to produce consistent output on all output media while taking advantage of display hardware acceleration when available (for example, through the X Render Extension).
