Here are two debdiff.


The 1st one (fontconfig) is a requirement for the 2nd.

I've tested that for a couple of days. No regression on my system.

I've used that cairo with xulrunner 1.9 and firefox 3.0  b2 rc1. It works like a charm.
Everything is available for review in my PPA.
Prism also benefited from this through xulrunner 1.9.
Same as experimental miro.

1st debdiff:

+fontconfig (2.5.0-2ubuntu2) hardy; urgency=low
+  * Replace Ubuntu's lcd patch by patch from Freedesktop bug #13566
+    which will allow native Cairo 1.6 lcd filtering (as per
+    Freedesktop bug #10301)
+    - drop debian/patches/03_ubuntu_lcd_filter.patch
+    - add debian/patches/03_lcd_filter_freedesktop_bug13566.patch
+    - update debian/patches/04_ubuntu_monospace_lcd_filter_conf.patch
