the movement of Mozilla graphics to Cairo.
"Robert "roc" O'Callahan has posted an update on the work to move Mozilla's
graphics infrastructure to Cairo. Formerly known as Xr or Xr/Xc, Cairo is a
cross-platform open-source vector graphics library. According to roc,
migrating to Cairo will "give us modern 2D graphics capabilities (such as
filling, stroking and clipping to paths, general affine transforms, and
ubiquitious support for alpha transparency)." Cairo can send its output to a
number of different backends, making it suitable for producing graphics for
both screen and print.
