@federicomena If I only had the time, improving Cairo would be something that I would definitely like to get into. In particular it completely riles me up is the limitation of surface size to 32768px, this has bitten us many times in WebKit, and it's only going to get worse now with HiDPI displays.


For example, this bug took months to “fix” because Hangouts/GMail used a PNG as sprite sheet with a height of 33K px and we were blinded by the possibility that the accelerated compositing code would be to blame (which would be more likely), and it wouldn't be reproducible for everybody because some people wouldn't get the huge sprite sheet → bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?i

(Note: the “fix” was to just disable rendering of huge images, so it is actually a workaround 😥 )
