Did you receive any bug reports against that?
I would be very interested in particular in incorrect rendering reports, but
pointing out performance issues would be useful as well.

Was the API structure good for your needs?

I'm working on some cleanup on the pattern code to be applied before adding
the meshes and the API is not yet finalized, but I believe gradient
mesh patterns
will certainly be available in cairo 1.12 (and much before that in

Thank you
