Yes, that is possibly why I missed it too.
g-i does still use 0.9.22, but we never forked libcairo as it wasn't a

I already tested current g-i (using old libs) with a libcairo compiled 
against 0.9.25 and I saw no problems. Either we just don't hit those 
codepaths, or libcairo only uses symbols that are still compatible...

Anyway, the plan is to release Beta3 with with the old libs and switch to 
the new libs in unstable soon after. This is possible now that Joss has 
uploaded gtk+2.0 with new udebs, but a bit too new untested to include in 
the release.

Thanks for uploading the new version. I just saw that that has built
