Cairo 1.2.2 and Pango 1.14.0 released
After spending almost the entire week working with Carl Worth
to get cairo
1.2.0 out, a bunch of very nasty bugs were discovered. So, after a few weeks of work, we actually spent most of the past 48 hours getting the bugfix release out. Everyone, make sure you upgrade to cairo 1.2.2
. Over 150 commits in 6 weeks for a bugfix release is only possible with Git
. Go Get It.
In other news, a boring Pango 1.14.0
was released too. Compared to 1.12, most notable change is update to Unicode 5.0 character database. There were quite a bunch of almost-ready patches in bugzilla adding new API, but a (-n almost) sudden request from the release-team to release Pango 1.14.0 well before the GNOME release forced me into closing this cycle without much new API. 1.15 should branch pretty soon and get a lot of new API, committed more casually as time will catch all the errors :-).
I intentionally make Pango 1.14.0 require Cairo 1.2.2 as 1.2.0 is really broken for various reasons, specially for printing and for vertical font stuff (mathrick
spent quite a few weeks trying to get his stuff work where it turned out to be a bug in cairo 1.2.0.) Now I can go back to hacking Firefox+Pango. More about that to follow.
