      Good news, I heard Cairo is a major bottleneck for Inkscape. Hopefully they can use this.

        Looking at the project site and the repo, this project looks fantastic.

          Good thing it's not written in Rust.

                Cross-platform but limited to x86 which might limit competition with other libs

                  If it was we wouldn't have this issue:
                  Blend2D has now reached beta but there still is a lot to be worked on including multi-threaded rendering, async rendering
                  I wouldn't write an app in Rust but if it had to be multi-threaded from the ground up I'd certainly try doing it in Rust as it does an amazing job (like no other systems language) at telling you you're doing something wrong with your threads and data.

                    If it's true that it's limited to x86 and no plans to fix it asap then it can't compete with the likes of Cairo and won't ever be adopted by Qt or whatnot.
