proj/gentoo: Initial commit
This commit represents a new era for Gentoo: Storing the gentoo-x86 tree in Git, as converted from CVS. This commit is the start of the NEW history. Any historical data is intended to be grafted onto this point. Creation process: 1. Take final CVS checkout snapshot 2. Remove ALL ChangeLog* files 3. Transform all Manifests to thin 4. Remove empty Manifests 5. Convert all stale $Header$/$Id$ CVS keywords to non-expanded Git $Id$ 5.1. Do not touch files with -kb/-ko keyword flags. Signed-off-by: Robin H. Johnson <> X-Thanks: Alec Warner <> - did the GSoC 2006 migration tests X-Thanks: Robin H.

+Imlib 2 is the successor to Imlib. It is not just a newer version - it is a
+completely new library. Imlib2 can be installed alongside Imlib 1.x without any
+problems since they are effectively different libraries - but they Have very
+similar functionality.
+Imlib2 can do the following:
+* Load image files from disk in one of many formats
+* Save images to disk in one of many formats
+* Render image data onto other images
+* Render images to an X-Windows drawable
+* Produce pixmaps and pixmap masks of Images
+* Apply filters to images
+* Rotate images
+* Accept RGBA Data for images
+* Scale images
+* Alpha blend Images on other images or drawables
+* Apply color correction and modification tables and factors to images
+* Render images onto images with color correction and modification tables
+* Render truetype anti-aliased text
+* Render truetype anti-aliased text at any angle
+* Render anti-aliased lines
+* Render rectangles
+* Render linear multi-colored gradients
+* Cache data intelligently for maximum performance
+* Allocate colors automatically
+* Allow full control over caching and color allocation
+* Provide highly optimized MMX assembly for core routines
+* Provide plug-in filter interface
+* Provide on-the-fly runtime plug-in image loading and saving interface
+* Fastest image compositing, rendering and manipulation library for X
+If what you want isn't in the list above somewhere then likely Imlib 2 does not
+do it. If it does it it likely does it faster than any other library you can find
+(this includes gdk-pixbuf, gdkrgb, etc.) primarily because of highly optimized
+code and a smart subsystem that does the dirty work for you and picks up the
+pieces for you so you can be lazy and let all the optimizations for you.
+Imlib 2 can run without a display, so it can be easily used for background image
+processing for web sites or servers - it only requires the X libraries to be
+installed - that is all - it does not require an XServer to run unless you wish
+to display images.
