Finally invoved in Open Source :)

Changes to phpCairo

Some changes have been made to phpCairo extensions …. the naming convention has been changed …
instead of cairoClassname it is now CairoClassname.

Added some extra features that have been supported in Cairo 1.6 to the framework.
At present clueless about the Quartz surface and win32 surface ….

  1. Great work!

    Quartz is the backend engine for drawing on Mac, and win32 is well… the same thing on Windows.

    You actually don’t need to worry much about it, if someone tries to create a Quartz surface on a non-mac platform, cairo will automatically complain; all you have to do is pass it on back to the user as an exception 🙂

  2. Hmmm, was there a decision made on camel case naming versus underscore naming in methods Anant? PHP-GTK actually violates PHP standards by using underscores in method names

    $window->activate_focus(); vs. $window->activateFocus();
