Ticket #1120 (new enhancement)
UTF8-Bytestring Pango interface.
|Reported by:||guest||Owned by:||axel|
Pango interface currently jumps through hoops to provide a String-based interface for pango functions. If (like in Yi) the user code uses UTF8 internally, it is harmful both from a performance and ease-of-use point of view. (Offsets have to be corrected twice in opposite directions)
It would be useful (and perhaps not too difficult) to provide an interface directly based on (UTF8) bytestrings.
