Hi, A question for cairo maintainers, not so much pycairo maintainers as AFAICT there are none.
What needs to happen for there to be a release of PyCairo ?
While there is Qairah, which provides a nicer API and CairoCFFI, there is a lot of legacy code out there, + pycairo is the easiest way to integrate with Gtk, Pango etc.
Problems with PyCairo as is include:
- No support for mesh etc (patched by Vincent A) https://lists.cairographics.org/archives/cairo/2015-June/026326.html
- Doesn't build on python3.5 out the box (Patched by Ubuntu and FREEBSD) https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=76759
- Cannot install from Pypi (might need a .whl to work on windows)
@SimonSapin has collected patches, as I'm sure have others.https://github.com/SimonSapin/pycairo
