===========================================================
General Changes:
py2cairo 1.10.0 requires cairo 1.10.0 (or later).
New Constants:
cairo.FORMAT_RGB16_565
Bug Fixes:
context.get_source().get_surface() fails #33013
Add support for './waf configure --libdir=XXX' #30230
Documentation Changes:
Upgrade to using Sphinx 1.0.7.
Include html documentation in the pycairo archive file.

Overview of changes from pycairo 1.8.8 to pycairo 1.8.10
========================================================
General Changes:
Pycairo 1.8.10 requires cairo 1.8.10 (or later).
New Classes/Types:
Win32PrintingSurface
XCBSurface - add XCB support using xpyb
Bug Fixes:
Fix for libtool 2.2 (#27974).

Other Changes:
Tests updated.
The Win32PrintingSurface and XCBSurface changes mean that pycairo 1.8.10 is
not binary compatible with pycairo 1.8.8. So modules that use the pycairo C
API (like pygtk) will need to be recompiled to use pycairo 1.8.10.

Overview of changes from pycairo 1.8.0 to pycairo 1.8.2

New Methods:
Context.set_scaled_font
API Changes:
Matrix multiplication:
old code: matrix3 = matrix1 * matrix2

is now equivalent to matrix3 = matrix2.multiply(matrix1)
which is consistent with standard matrix multiplication.

Overview of changes from pycairo 0.5.1 to pycairo 0.6.0
=======================================================
This version has many changes which update Pycairo to the new cairo API. The
change list is not duplicated here, instead see the cairo/NEWS file for full
details of all these API changes.
Pycairo method names that were different from the underlying cairo function
names have been changed to make Pycairo more closely follow cairo and so
enable the cairo documentation to be used for writing Pycairo programs.
NOTES has been updated to list the differences between the C API and the
Pycairo API.
Context.copy_path() has been implemented, it returns a Path instance which
supports the iterator protocol.
Python 2.3 is now required.
New examples:
examples/warpedtext.py
shows usage of the Path iterator
examples/cairo_snippets/
shows many of the 'cairo-demo/cairo_snippets' examples
examples/gtk/png_view.py
example using cairo.ImageSurface.create_from_png()
Overview of changes from pycairo 0.1.4 to pycairo 0.4.0
=======================================================
New cairo bindings:
cairo_font_extents
Bindings removed:
cairo_font_set_transform
cairo_font_current_transform
New examples:
gtk/hangman.py
Other:
Changed version numbering to correspond directly with the Cairo
version Pycairo was developed to work with. So, for example,
Pycairo version 0.4.0 represents the Pycairo version that has been
developed and tested with Cairo 0.4.0.
Overview of changes from pycairo 0.1.3 to pycairo 0.1.4
=======================================================
The Pycairo license has changed so that it is now dual-licensed under the LGPL
and the MPL, the same as Cairo itself. For details see the COPYING file as
well as COPYING-LGPL-2.1 and COPYING-MPL-1.1.
New cairo bindings:
cairo_pdf_surface_create
cairo_set_target_pdf
New libsvg-cairo bindings:
svg_cairo_parse
svg_cairo_parse_buffer
svg_cairo_render
svg_cairo_get_size
Other:
Added --without-pygtk configure option.
Renamed the Pycairo API _new() functions to _wrap() to allow _new() to
be used for python __new__ functions.
New examples: svg2png.py and svgview.py.
Overview of changes for pycairo 0.1.3
=====================================
After the recent server compromise we discarded all unsigned
snapshots. That left us without a pycairo snapshot.
Additionally, there were no tags in the source repository so I
couldn't recreate the 0.1.2 snapshot, so here's a new 0.1.3 snapshot.
I apologize if I botched the version number or left something
significant out of this announcement---I'm not the one who will
usually be doing pycairo maintenance.
New bindings:
current_path
current_path_flat
current_font_extents
Changes:
fill_extents,stroke_extents: Remove unnecessary args and
change from a method to an attribute.
Other:
Added two new examples: context-subclass.py and warpedtext.py
