It is a backend component for the GNUstep GUI Library.
The implementation of the GNUstep GUI Library is designed in two parts.
The first part is the front-end component which is independent of platform
and display system.  This front-end is combined with a back-end
component which handles all of the display system dependent such as
specific calls to the X Window System.
This package provides the cairo backend.
