It's been a while since last having anything to report on with the Pixman pixel manipulation library, but released yesterday was a new release candidate (v0.33.4) leading up to the Pixman 0.34 debut.

Pixman 0.34 isn't expected until early next year while these release candidates are already working their way into Fedora, among other uses. This new release candidate has a security fix for preventing a stack buffer overflow, new fast-paths and optimizations for POWER and ARMv6 code, and new self tests.

More details via the release announcement.
