Bug#835087: ITP: r-cran-cairo -- GNU R graphics device using cairo graphics library

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Andreas Tille <tille@debian.org>

* Package name    : r-cran-cairo
  Version         : 1.5-9
  Upstream Author : Simon Urbanek <Simon.Urbanek@r-project.org>
* URL             : http://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/Cairo
* License         : GPL
  Programming Lang: GNU R
  Description     : GNU R graphics device using cairo graphics library
 GNUR R graphics device using cairo graphics library for creating high-
 quality bitmap (PNG, JPEG, TIFF), vector (PDF, SVG, PostScript) and
 display (X11 and Win32) output
 Cairo graphics device that can be use to create high-quality vector
 (PDF, PostScript and SVG) and bitmap output (PNG,JPEG,TIFF), and high-
 quality rendering in displays (X11 and Win32). Since it uses the same
 back-end for all output, copying across formats is WYSIWYG. Files are
 created without the dependence on X11 or other external programs. This
 device supports alpha channel (semi-transparent drawing) and resulting
 images can contain transparent and semi-transparent regions. It is ideal
 for use in server environments (file output) and as a replacement for
 other devices that don't have Cairo's capabilities such as alpha support
 or anti-aliasing. Backends are modular such that any subset of backends
 is supported.

Remark:  This package will be maintained by the Debian Med team at
