Phoronix: Cairo 1.10 Released With Lots Of New Work
Cairo, the 2D drawing API that's used extensively within GTK+, Mono, Mozilla's Gecko engine, WebKit, and many other open-source projects, is out with a new major release. Cairo 1.10 is this major release to succeed the Cairo 1.8 stable series, which was introduced back in September of 2008...
are the speed ups relative to 1.9 or 1.8?
any tutorial on how to use the opengl backend? The API docs don't mention an opengl surface
The API docs seem to be outdated. There are:
cairo_glx_device_create() and cairo_gl_surface_create() methods in the source code.
and I found this using them: Performance OpenGL backend
I can't find anything on GTK
Can this version render with Wayland instead of X11?
Cairo isn't really used by WebKit. Apple, Google and Nokia do not use Cairo for their port at least.

I am not impressed.
OK, I take that back; it seems Firefox enters slow motion mode with Cairo 1.10 regardless of the chosen backend. Reverting to Cairo 1.8...
Wayland has used Cairo internally from the beginning. So yes, it still does work with Wayland.
