I'm not aware of any multi-thread bugs related to text rendering. The
text performance improvement you're seeing in 1.4.10 compared to 1.4.6
is primarily due to the solid-surface cache that was introduced in the
1.3.8 release.

Preliminary versions of that cache, (during 1.3.x development), did
cause problems with multi-thread text rendering, but we didn't put the
cache into any released version of cairo until all known problems were

I would recommend 1.4.10, (and of course, please let us know if you do
run into any problems).

Have fun with cairo!
