I did some work to make xaralx use the cairo lib. for all drawing,
( mainly did the fill in job Carl Worth set up in 2007 ),
so it is fully open source now.

Though the program is usable there are some things missing a.t.m. :
-no pathmath, so combining shapes, contour tool and bevel tool won't work.
-conical, three- and four point, fractal colorpattens/transparency
patterns don't work
-probably ( surely ) some more things...

Here's a jpg witch shows the possiblilities a.t.m.

You can get the source with :
git clone git://repo.or.cz/xara-cairo.git

It will compile with wx-windows 2.8 ( which is configured with utf8
support ) on the linux platform.
( wx-windows 2.6 might also work, i didn't try... )

I named it xara-cairo for now.

I have no experience with c++, so only a few minor changes were made to
the xara code, just to get things working.

I would like to ask some advice on how to get this project alive again.
Hope you like it.
