I yesterday introduced a new dependency on CVS Head.
The GIMP now depends on Libart, a library for rendering high quality
vector artwork. Currently it is just used for the conversion of a
path to a selection, but we also plan to use it for some stroking
Libart is plain C and does not depend on Gnome (but Gnome uses it too).
IIRC it is also available for Windows.
It significantly improved the quality of the path->selection conversion,
a simple example can be seen at
The windows to the left are the old code, the windows on the right
show the improved version.
