Version 2.7.0 of XPaint

Release Notes: This is a big step forward for Xpaint. C-scripts can now be used to handle filters, to create of images defined through arbitrary algorithms, or to create mathematical 2D or 3D plots. Layers are now supported, and a new widget box appears on the canvas window to visualize and manipulate objects kept in memory.

Other releases

Release Notes: Autoconf is now used by default, although the old Imakefile mechanism is still included. Some minor issues that could have led to segfaults in some rare circumstances were fixed. The libxaw3dxft library is required but is now a separate project.
