Re: libgdiplus API and gdk

gdk  is a fairly low level API.
We have only very basic drawing primitives.

Using gdiplus as an additional highlevel API on gtk+ areas should be possible once gtk+ uses cairo.

On the other hand, libgdiplus from the mono project is in the spirit of pdf and it works fine nowadays.
It depends on cairo.

Is it possible to integrate libgdiplus into gdk?

I think this excellent and exciting summary addresses all your questions:

Short: gtk will use cairo, gdiplus will use cairo. I don't see any benefits of gdi+ over cairo (unless you add mono and that's not the road I want to follow [I use gtkmm]).
