          Release Notes: Text can now be outlined or shadowed. Caching now works for vertical text. The return code of tiger_renderer_update mixing 0 and 1 was fixed. ABGR buffers are now supported, in addition to ARGB buffers. A tiger_renderer_set_quality crash when a surface isn't yet set was fixed. The quality setting can be used to tweak speed versus quality in more cases.

            Release Notes: This release is under the LGPL (since Pango is required and is under the LGPL). It has support for vertical text, support for markers, justified text support, a new bitmap cache to avoid recreating (and leaking) Cairo surfaces, and a new tiger_renderer_is_dirty function to optimize away unnecessary rendering. Internal caching can now be turned on and off. Uninstalled PC files now link against static libraries rather than libtool ones.
