Release Notes: Several fixes for failures on Quartz and PDF and build fixes for a couple of backends were made. A check for XRender in the XCB backend was introduced to avoid invalid memory accesses.
Release Notes: Building with older bash and XRender was fixed. Triggering of a bug in X.org server 6.9 is now avoided. A bug in the computation of user-font glyph bounding boxes of Type3 fonts was fixed. A miscomputation of the size of fallback images was fixed. Cairo is now more tolerant of broken fonts when subsetting Type1 fonts. Several further bugs were fixed.
Release Notes: It is now possible to build Cairo without any font backend, which is most useful when the application provides custom font rendering through the user-font API. A failsafe fallback font is provided, though. Several compilation speed-ups and optimizations were made. Many bugs were fixed.
Release Notes: Many improvements were made to Cairo's ability to handle text, including a new "user fonts" feature as well as allowing glyphs to be embedded in PDF output along with their original text (for searching, selection, and copy-and-paste). A major revamp of the build system makes it much easier to build Cairo on various platforms. The performance on remote X servers without the Render extension was improved. The output of cairo-ps and cairo-pdf was made more efficient. Completions were made to the API. Many bugs were fixed.
Release Notes: In this development release, several robustness improvements and code cleanups were made. Recent beta changes to the API were modified. The dynamic library file naming scheme was changed. Several bugs were fixed.
Release Notes: The dominant theme of this release is improvements around the Cairo text API. The new features include a new user font API, show_text_glyphs(), LCD subpixel filtering using FreeType, a toy font face constructor and getter, FreeType respecting FC_FT_FACE, more efficient output of PS and PDF, avoidance of rendering glyphs out of surface bounds in the Xlib backend, improved performance with Xrender-less X servers in the Xlib backend, Directfb backend improvements, countless bugfixes, and other optimizations.
Release Notes: This release reverts the xlib locking change introduced in 1.6.2 (and the application crashes that it caused).
Release Notes: A regression where stroking under a large scale would sometimes incorrectly replace a miter join with a bevel join was fixed. The xlib backend was fixed to not consider recent X server releases as having a buggy repeat implementation in the Render extension. Several bugs in Cairo's PostScript output were fixed, including making the PostScript output more compatible with recent versions of Ghostscript that are more strict about Type 3 fonts.
Release Notes: Many significant bugfixes preventing crashes were made. Several rendering problems were addressed. Minor build fixes and optimizations were made.
Release Notes: X errors which caused Openoffice.org crashes were fixed. Drawing of large numbers of rectangles was optimized. Several minor fixes were made.
