The Xsun included with the Solaris 9 12/02 MU now includes
Xrender support. The RENDER module is loaded into Xsun by
default, but libXrender.so is placed in /usr/openwin/sfw/lib
I assume to let you know that it is still "experimental".
Has anyone been able to successfully use it yet? I built
Xft with Xrender support, but any app that uses that Xft
library crashes as soon as it tries to draw a font. I built
QT and KDE with Xrender support (but not Xft) hoping that it
might render the new default icons more handsomely, but there
was no change.
