+The cairo community is pleased to announce the 1.8.6 release of the
+cairo graphics library. This is the third update to cairo's stable
+1.8 series and contains a small number of bug fixes (in particular a
+few fixes for failures of cairo 1.8.4 on Quartz and PDF, and build fixes
+for a couple of backends). This is being released just under a month
+after cairo 1.8.4.
+We recommend that everyone using cairo upgrade to 1.8.6.
+Build fixes
+Fix build of DirectFB backend with debugging enabled:
+   Bug in _cairo_directfb_surface_release_source_image function
+   http://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=18322
+Fix build on OS/2.
+Bug fixes
+Workaround a mis-compilation of cairo_matrix_invert() that generated
+invalid matrices and triggered assertion failures later. The issue was
+reported by Peter Hercek.
+Invalid computation of the modulus:
+   https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=466258
+Invalid referencing of patterns in the Quartz backend:
+   (&pattern->ref_count)' when using cairo quartz backend
+   http://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=18632
+Invalid references to glyphs after early culling, causing segmentation
+faults in the PDF backend:
+Check for XRender in the XCB backend, or else we may attempt an invalid
+memory access:
+    XCB backend fails with missing render.
