Cairo Ported to BeOS

The Cairo vector-based graphics library now has a BeOS port, courtesy of Christian ‘biesi’ Biesinger. The Cairo library is used in Gecko 1.8 – the engine behind Firefox 1.5 and Seamonkey 1.0 – for SVG and CANVAS tag support, although future plans involve it receiving heavier use for general rendering, and is also receiving increasing use within GTK+, with 2.8 having inital support for it. The availability of this library on BeOS should aid the native porting of GTK+ in the future as well as ensuring that Mozilla products have a future on the platform, and its almost certain to see wider adoption in the future.
