With the recent discussion of features people would like to see, I've
now updated cairo's ROADMAP file. I've also fixed things so that the
following URL now shows the latest version of this file as it exists
in git:


(This had been stuck showing the stale version of the ROADMAP as in
CVS for a while.)

So, people that responded to my request for things that aren't in
1.1.2 and that they would like to see in 1.2.0 should see them in the

and developers can meet and discuss planning and other things. I
