Overview changes from 1.21.3

  • Use cairo_show_text_glyphs() if target cairo surface supports that. This is done by adding a new PangoRenderer method, draw_glyph_item(). Custom PangoRenderer implementations that delegate to pango_cairo may want to implement this method if they target PDF files.
  • Requires cairo >= 1.7.4 now
  • Win32 build improvements
  • Justify lines broken by U+2028 LINE SEPARATOR
  • Various small fixes and improvements
  • New API additions. You can read more about them in the original announcement.

Overview of changes between 1.20.0 and 1.20.1:

  • Update to Unicode Character Databse 5.1.0. This adds new entries to the PangoScript enum. Requires glib >= 2.16.3 for the update Unicode data there, but not bumping the requirement in a stable point release.
  • Try making our OS X stuff compile with latest cairo 1.5.x snapshots that renamed cairo-atsui to cairo-quartz-font, as well as older versions.
  • Minor bug fixes.

Notes:

  • This is unstable development release. While it has had fairly extensive testing, there are likely bugs remaining to be found. This release should not be used in production.
  • Installing this version will overwrite your existing copy of Pango. If you have problems, you’ll need to reinstall Pango-1.20.x
  • Bugs should be reported to http://bugzilla.gnome.org.
