The chief bug fixer has been Benjamin Otte who not only made sure that the public API is consistent and being tested for its consistency, but also ensured that the documentation was up-to-date and spent time clarifying cases where even the Cairo developers have come unstuck in the past. Many thanks, Benjamin. However, he was not alone, as Andrea Canciani continued his fine work in isolating broken corner cases and proceeding to fix them, and tidying up the quartz backend. And last, but definitely not least, M Joonas Pihlaja tried building Cairo across a perverse range of systems and fixed up all the loose bits of code that came unravelled. Thanks everybody! -Chris API Changes ----------- cairo_surface_set_mime_data, cairo_surface_get_mime_data: The length parameter is now an unsigned long (as opposed to an unsigned int). The parameter is intended to be an equivalent to a size_t without requiring POSIX types and be large enough to store the size of the largest possible allocation. cairo_gl_surface_create_for_texture: This a new surface constructor for cairo-gl that explicitly enables render-to-texture for foreign, i.e. application, textures. cairo_region_xor, cairo_region_xor_rectangle A couple of utility routines add to the region handling interface for the purpose of replacing existing GdkRegion functionality. Bugs fixes ---------- https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/cairo/+bug/600622 Inkscape was caught in the act of attempting to modify a finished surface. Unfortunately, we had the ordering of our guards and assertions wrong and so an ordinary application error was triggering an assert in Cairo. This lead Benjamin to add a test case to ensure that the entire public API could handle erroneous input and then proceeded to fix a whole slew of uncovered bugs. https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=28888 A regression introduced by the special casing of uploading images to an xlib surface in-place which was ignoring the translation applied to the image.
