Other releases

Release Notes: Fixes a bug with reducing 16-bit images to 8-bit using the "-reduce" option. Restores calls to png_set_crc_action(), which had been removed from version 1.7.72 for some testing and inadvertently not restored. Adds code to fix/salvage PNG files with a "bad adaptive filter value" error. Avoids calculating CRC during compression trials except for the last trial, when the output is actually written.
