Hi everybody,

below you find links to four lilypond installers. These installers contain LilyPond version git ee4513cb238cc (2.23.4) plus an additional patch that implements a new backend based on cairo. All installers were built with a modified version of GUB. Cairo 1.16.0 with Pixman 0.40 are used to produce  the output files.

I noticed that -e command line options are not recognised.

Output looks good, apart from a known limitation

warning: The Cairo backend ignores embedded postscript!
