As great as Cairo seems, I just recently learned about a widget in the gnome / GTK+ library that can also be used for drawing: Gnome Canvas. While Cairo seems to be more for drawing static, non-interactive pictures, the Gnome Canvas is more for layering shapes, bitmaps, etc... onto a "canvas", and it keeps track of ...

After much turmoil, I have decided that multimedia support for my language has to be the #1 priority for this project to succeed. It doesn't matter how efficient the language is if it can't encode / decode certain video files.

I have also decided which multimedia framework I am going to use. Again, after ...

One of my co-workers was inquiring about why am I taking on such a large project? Was I going to get paid? If successful, would I become rich? So, I thought I would share my underlying motivations with everyone.

My motivations are simple: I want to create a powerful, stable, and artistically kick-ass video editor ...
