+	 Subject: [cairo] cairo release 1.14.0 now available
+
+	A new cairo release 1.14.2 is now available from:
+
+	  http://cairographics.org/releases/cairo-1.14.2.tar.xz
+
+	    which can be verified with:
+
+	    http://cairographics.org/releases/cairo-1.14.2.tar.xz.sha1
+	    c8da68aa66ca0855b5d0ff552766d3e8679e1d24  cairo-1.14.2.tar.xz
+
+	    http://cairographics.org/releases/cairo-1.14.2.tar.xz.sha1.asc
+	    (signed by Bryce Harrington)
+
+	  Additionally, a git clone of the source tree:
+
+	  git clone git://git.cairographics.org/git/cairo
+
+	    will include a signed 1.14.2 tag which points to a commit named:
+	    93422b3cb5e0ef8104b8194c8873124ce2f5ea2d
+
+	    which can be verified with:

+
+
+	Release 1.14.2 (2014-03-09 Bryce Harrington <bryce at osg.samsung.com>)
+	====================================================================
+	This release provides collected bug fixes, along with one feature
+	enhancement for the xcb backend, and a small performance improvement for
+	fonts.
+
+	The running theme of the bug fixes is platform-specific issues, both
+	build and run-time.  Platforms with fixes include Sparc, AIX, Windows
+	(mingw), and Windows (MSVC8).  Memory leaks, valgrind issues, and PDF
+	issues round out our list.
+
+	It's come to light that changes in cairo 1.14 resulted in breakage on
+	MacOS X 10.4.  We've not yet determined whether to fix up the support,
+	or excise the 10.4-specific code and support only OS X 10.5 or newer.
+	Meantime, we'll only advertise cairo as working on OS X 10.5.
+
+	Features
+	--------
+	 * Improve xcb's handling of per-screen subpixel ordering.  If no
+	   Xft.rgba property is specified, default to the screen's subpixel
+	   order.
+
+	API Changes
+	-----------
+	None
+
+	Dependency Changes
+	------------------
+	None
+
+	Performance Optimizations
+	-------------------------
+	 * Improve performance of cpu_to_be32 and be32_to_cpu, making truetype
+	   subsetting of large fonts run about 15% faster.
+
+	Bug Fixes
+	---------
+	 * Fix unaligned access on sparc with the compact font format (CFF).
+	   Unlike truetype, all data in CFF is not aligned.
+	   (Debian bug #712836)
+	 * Fix unaligned access on sparc with tor-scan-converter's memory pool.
+	 * Fix crash when loading a PDF with a transformed image.
+	   (fdo bug #85151)
+	 * Fix regression on mingw for bigendian test due to removal of file
+	   extension for executables.
+	   (fdo bug #85120)
+	 * Fix handling of backslash in PDF interpreter
+	   (fdo bug #85662)
+	 * Fix crash in xlib and xcb renderers when swapping a 0-sized glyph
+	 * Fix bug with RTL text in PDF operators
+	   (fdo bug #86461)
+	 * Fix compilation 'cairo-path-stroke-traps.c' with MSVC8
+	   (fdo bug #84908)
+	 * Fix crash in _fill_xrgb32_lerp_opaque_spans when a span length is
+	   negative.
+	 * Fix valgrind error by releasing pattern created by
+	   cairo_pattern_create_rgb().
+	 * Fix valgrind errors when running cairo-test-suite.
+	 * Fix memory leak in recording surface replays
+	   (fdo bug #87898)
+	 * Fix destruction of fonts in api-special-cases test.
+	   (fdo bug #87567)
+	 * Fix duplicated surface push on similar-image, preventing trivial GTK3
+	   program traces from being replayable, with an error message about
+	   invalid values for the size of the input.
+	   (fdo bug #73580)
+	 * Fix crash when win32 surface's image size does not cover the entire
+	   surface.
+	   (fdo bug #53121)
+	 * Fix crash due to obsolete CGFontGetGlyphPath call
+	   (fdo bug #84324)
+	 * Fix several build issues on AIX
+	   (fdo bugs #89338, #89340, #89356, #89354)
+	 * Fix various documentation warnings and errors
+
+
+	What is cairo
+	=============
+	Cairo is a 2D graphics library with support for multiple output
+	devices. Currently supported output targets include the X Window
+	System (via both Xlib and XCB), quartz, win32, and image buffers,
+	as well as PDF, PostScript, and SVG file output. Experimental backends
+	include OpenGL, BeOS, OS/2, and DirectFB.
+
+	Cairo is designed to produce consistent output on all output media
+	while taking advantage of display hardware acceleration when available
+	(for example, through the X Render Extension).
+
+	The cairo API provides operations similar to the drawing operators of
+	PostScript and PDF. Operations in cairo include stroking and filling
+	cubic B├ęzier splines, transforming and compositing translucent images,
+	and antialiased text rendering. All drawing operations can be
+	transformed by any affine transformation (scale, rotation, shear,
+	etc.).
+
+	Cairo has been designed to let you draw anything you want in a modern
+	2D graphical user interface.  At the same time, the cairo API has been
+	designed to be as fun and easy to learn as possible. If you're not
+	having fun while programming with cairo, then we have failed
+	somewhere---let us know and we'll try to fix it next time around.
+
+	Cairo is free software and is available to be redistributed and/or
+	modified under the terms of either the GNU Lesser General Public
+	License (LGPL) version 2.1 or the Mozilla Public License (MPL) version
+	1.1.
