For those that may have some extra time over the summer months that are looking to get involved with some new open-source work and are looking for something that's high-profile but often overlooked, Cairo would be a great project.

The Cairo vector graphics library for 2D drawing sports numerous back-ends -- with hardware acceleration support -- and is used by projects ranging from GTK+ to WebKit to Mozilla's Gecko engine to Inkscape and X.Org.

While Cairo is widely-used by countless open-source projects for its 2D drawing back-ends, there remains a lengthy TODO list. Work on their outstanding TODO list ranges from working out new performance improvements, SVG improvements, working out a lot of bug-fixes, back-end improvements, and developing new back-ends.

Those looking to help out an important free software project can find the lengthy Cairo TODO list in full at CairoGraphics.org.
