I've been pushing my work to
I'll rebase to the latest cairo bits. (It might be best to continue
working with HEAD of my branch, since it runs fine on gtk2 and will
minimize unnecessary patch conflicts.) It's also a little confusing
to have so many clones: walters-cairo, walters-gtk3, cscott-gtk3, etc.
Can we pick one clone and stick with it, even if we're going to work
on separate branches?
Gtk2 operation on my branch is unmodified, although the code uses Gtk3
"style" throughout, for future-proofing. The GTK3 version just needs
some more incremental fixes; at the moment it's failing trying to
create a CairoContext from a canvas---which I think should just be a
no-op, more or less. Just a matter of getting enough time to work
through the fixes, help welcome.
