+	Subject: cairo snapshot 1.15.12 now available
+	
+	A new cairo snapshot 1.15.12 is now available from:
+	
+	  http://cairographics.org/snapshots/cairo-1.15.12.tar.xz
+	
+	    which can be verified with:
+	
+	    http://cairographics.org/snapshots/cairo-1.15.12.tar.xz.sha1
+	    4e64c6a48789edb4c60bc3fa95bd3992cc388b88  cairo-1.15.12.tar.xz
+	
+	    http://cairographics.org/snapshots/cairo-1.15.12.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 1.15.12 tag which points to a commit named:
+	    7149686456ec3c481fa1d3dbe76a0dab1e42b519

+	Release 1.15.12    (2018-04-04 Bryce Harrington <bryce at osg.samsung.com>)
+	========================================================================
+	The main focus for this release is the addition of Variable Font
+	support.  Variable fonts are single font files with various typography
+	characteristics, such as weight or slant, that users of the font can
+	adjust between two points.  Effectively this enables a single font to
+	behave as multiple fonts.
+	
+	The Skia backend is disabled in this release, due to severe bitrot, and
+	will be removed in future releases.  Contact the cairo team if you have
+	a need of this backend.
+	
+	For a complete log of changes, please see

+	
+	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.
