A number of exciting technologies come together in GNOME 2.12 that will set the standard for free software desktops to come. Here is a sample of some of the outstanding work that has gone into GNOME thanks to its many contributors.

"Cairo vector graphics library allows for smoother edges, RGBA translucency and better looking, more flexible theming."
I think that RGBA translucency is what has people excited.

Anyway, there's some discussion about Cairo's software rendering being slow; I'd love to see something about it. Are we talking about slow like how ascii config files are slow, or slow like something someone could humanly notice?
