Cairo 1.2.6 reviewDownload
Cairo project is a 2D graphics library with support for multiple output devices
Cairo project is a 2D graphics library with support for multiple output devices. Currently supported output targets include the X Window System, win32, and image buffers. Experimental backends include OpenGL (through glitz), Quartz, XCB, PostScript and PDF file output.
Cairo is designed to produce consistent output on all output media while taking advantage of display hardware acceleration when available (eg. through the X Render Extension).
The cairo API provides operations similar to the drawing operators of PostScript and PDF. Operations in cairo including stroking and filling cubic B?zier splines, transforming and compositing translucent images, and antialiased text rendering. All drawing operations can be transformed by any affine transformation (scale, rotation, shear, etc.)
Cairo is implemented as a library written in the C programming language, but bindings are available for several different programming languages.
What's New in This Release:
Improvements were made in the testing infrastructure.
A bug with varying byte orders on forwarded X connections was fixed.
