Hi all,

I am familiar with Gtk2.6 version code. We have plans to migrate to 2.10.
In 2.6, it was not mandatory to use cairo. Now I see that Cairo is an
integral part of 2.10.
Can I know how the approach is changed from 2.6 to 2.10 in the case of
handling surfaces ?
And how the migration happened in GdkDraw, gdkpixmap, gdkwindow, gdkdrawable
to use cairo
How cairo_surface_t structure is used during rendering text, image, etc ?
Please clarify this.

can you please make an effort at rephrasing your questions?
i have a hard time understanding what it is you're asking for.
yes, gtk+ >= 2.8 depends on cairo and the rendering backend is properly
integrated with it, this move was made because cairo provides vastly
better drawing primitives than raw X.
