    Wow, microsummaries are cool! :)

    My goodness… I’ve been watching this blog since January, intending to start grabbing nightly builds as soon as Cairo arrives on the Mac. But since I still see this bug:

    # Since Jan 26 (FDL): [Mac] Opacity doesn’t work. (Related to 325296. Cairo will fix.)

    I’m assuming that Cairo has *still* not arrived for Mac. How long have Windows users had it now? When the heck is Cairo coming for Mac OS X? Is it going to be in the final release?

  3. Nelson Says:

    That said, I agree that microsummaries are cool :-) And I am becoming increasingly impressed with the feature list, despite the absence of “Places”, and I’m confident that the final release will be worthy of its version number. Keep up the good work, Mozilla!

    Firefox trunk on Windows has been using Cairo since 2006-02-22. Hopefully the trunk will have it within a few months, since a lot of plans for Gecko 1.9 (the Firefox 3 backend) depend on having Cairo for all platforms.

    Cairo on Mac depends on two major projects, Cocoa widgets on Mac and the Quartz backend for Cairo. I think the Quartz backend is mostly done, so the remaining work on Cocoa widgets is the only big thing still blocking Cairo on Mac. See Josh’s blog post and the Cocoa widgets tracking bug and the other Cocoa widgets tracking bug for information about progress on Cocoa widgets. I’m not sure why there are two tracking bugs.

    One’s for widget and one’s for gfx (although it seems to have picked up some widget-like bugs lately); one’s Josh’s and one’s pavlov’s ;)
