This is a resent with additional CC of the stable@ ML. This was done to
get more exposure, because the first mail didn't get much reaction. When
replying please only reply to freebsd-x11@, freebsd-ports@ and
freebsd-stable@ are only used to get this a bigger audience.
This is a weird call for testers.
First off before the real CFT. We are interested if people are still
using 8.x for there desktop. Is there a specific reason for not updating
to 9.x or 10.x?
So in our quest for push Xorg on FreeBSD further, we are looking for
people to test cairo 1.12 primarily with the old Xorg stack. We know
that the graphics with the 2.7.1 intel driver are horribly broken (lots
of artifacts) so people don't need to test that, but what is the state
of the other xorg video drivers with cairo 1.12? If problems arise after
the update, a screenshot and details about installed ports and your
hardware should be enough. But if your using the intel driver with old
xorg please chime in too, this will give us a beter idea about the user
While this CFT is focused on the non-WITH_NEW_XORG that should not stop
people that are using WITH_NEW_XORG from trying it out. The Intel/Radeon
KMS drivers shouldn't have any problem with cairo 1.12.
