I want to use cairo in embedded systems with OpenGL ES support. I know
currently there are two cairo backends which uses GPU for graphics

1) Glitz (OpenGL backend)
2) OpenVG (which is usually implemented in OpenGL)

Can I use Glitz for this purpose? I am a bit worried because glitz seems to
be out of date now. What is the minimum requirements of OpenGL to use glitz?
Does it need specific GL extensions?

What is the current status of OpenVG backend? Is it an officially supported
backend? I found AmanithVG implements OpenVG with OpenGL ES 1.1 and 2.0.

Are there other options to use cairo in embedded systems with accleration?
