I read tons of changelog but didn't think to look at README :(

It seems my memory is faulty! Maybe, previously I did run only a few 
small test file on win98, and concluded that Cairo works there. 
Yesterday I wanted to run CairoPad on win98, it didn't worked... So, I 
thought it may be due to new version.

Sorry for wasting your (and other replier's) time, I should be test 
carefully before asking questions.
