First "cairofication" stage has been finished. This drawing is provided by Alexandre Prokoudine and was initially created in Inkscape:
sK1 now has two renderers: Cairo-based and Xlib-based. Gradients, clips, tiled clips and images still are not supported under Cairo mode. We hope it will be fixed soon.
Alpha channel for vector graphics is now available, i.e. sK1 can supports RGBA and CMYKA colors.
