As I'm sure you've all been longing to hear, we've finally got around to releasing a new version of PECL/Cairo! This version fixes some bugs, and adds support for some new features available since Cairo 1.10 — notably, support for subsurfaces, which are surfaces that draw onto a part of a larger surface, and for recording surfaces, which record all drawing operations and can then be used as the source for other drawing operations. Also, Mark Skilbeck has added support for Win32 fonts. Also, the FreeType font handling has been improved, and should now give more informative messages when errors occur.
Any questions, comments, bug reports, or contributed code are welcome. Drop us a line on the PECL mailing list, or try #php.pecl on EFNet.
