Version 1.21 of PDFjam

Release Notes: This release fixes some important security problems. The scripts now call for "/bin/bash" (rather than "/bin/sh") as the interpreter. Availability of "mktemp -d" is also now assumed. The sample Mac OS X droplets now look for "pdflatex" at (by default) "/usr/texbin/pdflatex", but this is still configurable.

Release Notes: This version includes various small enhancements and bugfixes. The script now allows JPEG format files to be specified as input. It is not known how widely that might work, so this feature should be regarded as experimental.
