Hi Eric,

I'm pleasantly surprised to see xara-cairo back and on github !

The last changes I made, after putting it up on a gitserver, were adding
path-combining/clipping and some better shadows, but that got lost due 
to a disk-fail.
I had a lot of other things on my mind end 2010, start 2011 and i didn't 
at it anymore untill last night .

You did quite some work.

Yes, but that was 2010. I'll have to dig in the archives of this list
to get more info.

I'll send you a mail to your private mailaddress in a few days,
to not burden this list, and  give you some more details.
