I'm working on Adobe's Apollo project (
http://www.adobe.com/go/apollo ). We are using the cairo graphics
context on windows. We'll be very interested in your work. We are
currently working on getting our port working with top of tree webkit.
We ran into some issues using cairo in our last release.
The most pressing issues that come to mind that we ran into were:
1. A fixed point arithmitic overflow issue in the cairo backend that
prevents the cairo port of webkit from rendering large web pages
2. The current cairo GraphicsContext implementation does not support
I'm pretty sure that these issues have not been addressed in the top of

Subject: [webkit-dev] Google Summer of Code and a WebKit
I will be carrying out a WebKit related project for http://
www.openmoko.org during google's summer of code. My project will be
to work on the Gdk/Cairo port of WebKit and my goal is to make it at
least as complete as the Qt port (including svg). So please stay
tuned for my patches.
I will at least spend a month full time on this project and probably
half time during the remaining months. I will completely focus on
this project to make sure to complete it in time. I hope to have time
left to look into the <animate> element of SVG and make it work as well.
This brings me to my Bio:
I'm a student of CS at the Free University in Berlin Germany with
focus on a lot of things (artificial intelligence, software
engineering and telematics). I have a long background in cotributing
to Free Software projects. These projects include KDE,
handhelds.org, openembedded.org, gcc, Opie/Qtopia, OpenSync,
KitchenSync. I'm a ARM Linux hacker in my spare time I love to read
gcc's ARM backend definitions. During the past summers I have
interned at companies developing GSM and or DVB-H based products/
projects. I have implemented various GSM, DVB, OMA and 3GPP standards
during this time. For the past two years I have deeply researched
timed media for broadcast. I have researched at GMIT GmbH and this
lead us to create the Handheld Interactive Synchronized TV (HisTV
http://www.histv.org) framework. The primary goals were to make the
protocol robust against loss of packets (we refer to it as tunnel-
problem), allow frame precise synchronisation to the video and make
sure current terminals can implement this specification.
Obviously one of the private goals is to make WebKit run on my Linux
phone and my Linux settop box next to h264.
I hope to succeed and happy hacking
