Cairo, Canvas and EXA
The last days I have used my free time to read about cairo and X acceleration. I created some tests to verify cairo performance on N800, because this is the main component for a GtkCanvas, this need be fast, cworth and another cairo guys have helped me a lot in irc channel. I am still working on some tests and making some optimizations to get the best results and very soon I will publish the results.
The problem is that in N800 device the current version of cairo does not have full support for RGB 565 surfaces, and these days I read in the blog from openmoko guys that they have the same problems.
Another great thing is the current performance of EXA acceleration, you can see this on this benchmark posted by cworth.
