A huge amount of work has gone into librsvg recently. We now have our cairo backend looking totally gnarly. All that remains to be implemented with this backend is filters and masks. Already our cairo backend shows some tremendous improvements over the libart one, gradients always go in the right spot, stroking patterns get scaled properly. Problems that took months to solve with libart fall together in a single night with cairo. I have my gnome desktop now using this plugin and it works accurately and reliably. I'm very excited about the progress. A comparison sheet (that's fairly out of date at the moment) can be seen here

Nokia 770 hacking

My work on making a game for the 770 continues. It can be aquired here. It's now beginning to resemble a proper game. I hope I'll have something to run it on soon.
