Release Notes: Explicit loading of the gdk-pixbuf library is done by the binding (not from Python), and minor internal enhancements (consistency checks).
Release Notes: The bug that caused image loading to dump core has been solved. To those that see a complaint from gdk_pixbuf, a workaround has been found and demonstrated in the test program.
Release Notes: First freshmeat announcement. Loading of images does not seem to work yet.
