Speaking of devlibs... I just committed Cairo 1.7.4 to devlibs,
along with Pixman 0.11.8. I know that it is an unstable version,
but we probably need to experiment with this one for development
purposes, since it has user font support and other text improvements.
I did test it. I would say that it ran fine but it didn't. It had
a crashing bug in win32_surface code, but Adrianj magnanimously fixed it
immediately and it runs great now. Thanks!
So people might want to "svn up" in their devlibs dirs to get this update.
