A new cairo snapshot 1.5.16 is now available

This is the eighth snapshot in cairo's unstable 1.5 series. It comes less than two weeks after the 1.5.14 snapshot and it really is a legitimate snapshot, (in spite of sharing this date with that of many bogus announcements). The major change in this snapshot is that the cairo-quartz backend is now officially "supported", including new API to construct a font face from a CGFontRef . Also several bug fixes have been fixed in many backends. See below for details.

This is definitely a "release candidate" snapshot for cairo 1.6.0. At this point all significant items from the cairo 1.6.0 roadmap are already in this snapshot. See:

http://cairographics.org/roadmap

At this point, the only change we are planning to make before cairo 1.6 is to change the setting of the infamous buggy_repeat flag, (depending on what we learn from characterizing which X server/driver versions exhibit bugs). We don't anticipate any other changes unless people identify bugs. So please let us know if you find anything. We plan to release cairo 1.6 by the end of this week.
