About this release
------------------
The gtk-engines team is happy to announce the release of gtk-engines 2.8.0. With this release, all the included gtk-engines[1] are now using the advanced rendering of the cairo graphics library to provide smoother and more scalable drawing. This has also enabled many of the engines have significant visual refinements as well. Other notable features in this release include the use of a shared code library between the engines, and pedantic error checking to ensure stability and compatibility.

The engines and themes provided by this library are: Clearlooks, Crux, HighContrast, Industrial, Mist, Redmond, Glide, Smooth, ThinIce.

Many thanks to the gtk-engines team for their hard work and persistence during the run up to this release.
