We've posted yet another release of the...

SVG Scene/Canvas Library for cairo & Pango

This release provides incremental rendering of scene elements. It includes
an example app and a build of cairo for Windows.

The SVG Scene toolkit enables applications to create views by constructing
an SVG content model, or scene (a.k.a. canvas). The scene may be displayed
simultaneously in multiple windows, possibly on separate clients. Rendering
of the scene is done via cairo and Pango, which in turn support diverse
environments, e.g. Windows, MacOS, Postscript, Xlib, etc. The scene may be
manipulated by multiple processes, enabling compound documents. The SVG
Scene library supports ownership of content model elements by widgets of
high-level application frameworks, but is not tied in to such frameworks.

The current release is a prototype that requires Windows 2000 or later.
Full source code is included, licensed under GNU LGPL. Feedback requested!
