GFX Update

  • New Windows pixman span rasterizer is just about ready to land; gives Windows performance potentially greater than that of Mac. Only thing left is Linux, which is hampered by XRender.
  • Windows 7 jumplists are coming along. This will be a toolkit/widget feature, so other products (eg Thunderbird) will be able to take advantage of it.
  • Landed a fix to image caching that ended up regressing Tp memory use and performance. Have some theories about this which we're going to test.
  • Working on finishing up Q2 goals and defining Q3 goals; look for a post to dev.planning today.
  • Other small things; see GFX meeting notes for more details.
