2.21.  RHEA-2009:1309: qcairo

A new package is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
Cairo is a 2D graphics library designed to provide high-quality display and print output. Currently supported output targets include the X Window System, OpenGL (via glitz), in-memory image buffers, and image files (PDF, PostScript, and SVG).
Cairo is designed to produce consistent output on all output media while taking advantage of display hardware acceleration when available (for example, through the X Render Extension or OpenGL).
qcairo is a version of the cairo 2D graphics library, with additional features required to support the implementation of the SPICE protocol. (BZ#488604)
Users of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 should install the qcairo packages for use with SPICE-enabled virtualization products.
