The X Rendering Extension (Render) introduces digital image composition as
the foundation of a new rendering model within the X Window System.
Rendering geometric figures is accomplished by client-side tessellation into
either triangles or trapezoids.  Text is drawn by loading glyphs into the
server and rendering sets of them.  The Xrender library exposes this
extension to X clients.
This package provides a static library and C header files.
