So I just read the emotion summary. Some form of PDF based on Cairo? I need to get my hands on this.

Someone give a report if they get this thing up and running. I'd be interested in performance on a fast machine.

The Emotion Komodo.Graphics module uses Cairo for drawing and has a backend plugin system for input, widget properties, etc.

I can give you a rough idea of performance: "Okay". I have been concentrating more on flexibility and power as well as wait until Mono and Cairo performance reaches the right level.

If you are a programmer you may be interested in working on performance related Emotion work, we are an open source project.
