To all aspiring Windows hackers:

The Font support patch (http://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=17336)  
and the WinLauncher/Spinneret patch (http://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=17428 
) have landed in the trunk, which should simplify the process of  
getting a Cairo Windows build up and running.

There is an important pending patch (http://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=17442 
) which corrects some bugs I created when mixing and matching the  
original Cairo and new CoreGraphics internal GraphicsContext  
representations.  This basically prevents some graphic image effects  
(rotation of images, etc.) from working properly.

I have another set of patches that need to be landed as well that re- 
enable the Windows Theme support and provides a rudimentary scroll  
bar.  I hope to get that posted today or tomorrow.
