Overview of changes between 1.20.0 and 1.20.1:

  • Update to Unicode Character Databse 5.1.0. This adds new entries to the PangoScript enum. Requires glib >= 2.16.3 for the update Unicode data there, but not bumping the requirement in a stable point release.
  • Try making our OS X stuff compile with latest cairo 1.5.x snapshots that renamed cairo-atsui to cairo-quartz-font, as well as older versions.
  • Minor bug fixes.


  • This is unstable development release. While it has had fairly extensive testing, there are likely bugs remaining to be found. This release should not be used in production.
  • Installing this version will overwrite your existing copy of Pango. If you have problems, you’ll need to reinstall Pango-1.20.x
  • Bugs should be reported to
