Hi all,

I would like to update the version of Cairo in the book to the most
recent version. Unfortunately, this requires that the book's version
of pixman must also be updated (0.18.4). Mostly directed to DJ and Dan
N., would updating pixman cause any breakage in Xorg? Anyone else with
pertinent information is welcome to reply.

I cannot find anything that describes the changes in pixman from version
to version. There is no NEWS files, or a ChangeLog file. Any help would
be appreciated.
