Foundations of Gtk+ Development
Yesterday I shortly reviewed the new Gtk+ book by Andrew Krause, Foundations of Gtk+ Development
, that I received as an ebook thanks to Apress.
I just searched Pango and cairo in it and read those parts. All in all, pretty good. Doesn't get into Pango at all, just defined PangoFontDescription and Pango markup and uses those with Gtk+ widgets all over the place. As for cairo, it has a short (2 3 page) intro to using cairo to draw paths.
The ebook is quite searchable which is a huge advantage over the dead=tree version. So far so good, but I doubt that I'll do a more in depth review staring at the monitor (or printing the 600+ page beast). Of course the fact that I lost my last pair of glasses this past weekend doesn't help either...
