+Release 1.0.0 (2005-08-24 Carl Worth <cworth at cworth.org>)
+ * The PS, PDF, Quartz, and XCB backends have been declared
+ experimental, and are not part of the API guarantees that accompany
+ this release. They are not built by default, even when the required
+ libraries are available, and must be enabled explicitly with
+ --enable-ps, --enable-pdf, --enable-quartz or --enable-xcb.
+ It is very painful for us to be pushing out a major release without
+ these backends enabled. There has been a tremendous amount of work
+ put into each one and all are quite functional to some
+ extent. However, each also has some limitations. And none of these
+ backends have been tested to the level of completeness and
+ correctness that we expect from cairo backends.
+ We do encourage people to experiment with these backends and report
+ sucess, failure, or means of improving them.
+ * Prior to 0.9.0 the SOURCE, CLEAR and a number of other operators
+ behaved in an inconsistent and buggy fashion and could affect areas
+ outside the clip mask. In 0.9.0, these six "unbounded" operators
+ were fixed to consistently clear areas outside the shape but within
+ the clip mask. This is useful behavior for an operator such as IN,
+ but not what was expected for SOURCE and CLEAR. So, in this release
+ the behavior of SOURCE and CLEAR has been changed again. They now
+ affect areas only within both the source and shape. We can write
+ the new operators as:
+ SOURCE: dest' = (mask IN clip) ? source : dest
+ CLEAR: dest' = (mask IN clip) ? 0 : dest
+Behavior and API changes
+ * Setting the filter on a gradient pattern would change the
+ interpolation between color stops away from the normal linear
+ interpolation. This dubious behavior has been removed.
+ * The CAIRO_CONTENT_VALID() and CAIRO_FORMAT_VALID() macros --
+ implementation details that leaked into cairo.h -- have been moved
+ into an internal header.
+ * The cairo_show_text function now advances the current point
+ according to the total advance values of the string.
+ * When compiled against recent versions of fontconfig and FreeType,
+ artificial bold fonts can now be turned on from fonts.conf using
+ the FC_EMBOLDEN fontconfig key.
+ * The compositing code from the 'xserver' code tree has now been
+ completely merged into libpixman. This includes MMX optimization of
+ common operations.
+ * The image transformation code in libpixman has been improved and
+ now performs significantly faster.
+ * Several crashes related to corruption in the font caches have been
+ * All test cases now match pixel-for-pixel on x86 and PPC; this
+ required fixing bugs in the compositing, stroking, and pattern
+ rendering code.
+ * Negative dash offsets have been fixed to work correctly.
+ * The stroking of paths with mutiple subpaths has now been fixed to
+ apply caps to all subpaths rather than just the last one.
+ * Many build fixes for better portability on various systems.
+ * Lots of other bug fixes, but we're too tired to describe them in
+ more detail here.
