migration to cairo canvas

Hi paul,

I’ve seen you’re migrating to cairo canvas. I’m just wondering what is the advantage?


Short answer: Manual Build.


thanx paul. Now its clear for me.

Is there something like daily build for downloading? Or is the manual build the only solution?

in no particular order: h/w acceleration. control. gradients. rounded corners. sensible code design. tuned to ardour’s needs. and more.

How do I build the cairocanvas version?

you need to use git to access the cairocanvas branch. then build it.
