Release Notes: This release (correctly) fixes heap overflows in most of the image decoders; the third-party patches distributed in September 2004 were incomplete. In addition, it fixes some display bugs in the TIFF and XWD decoders, adds full support for version-4 BMPs ("bitfields"), and includes some other small improvements.

Release Notes: This is the first public release of the (unofficial) XV jumbo patches, incorporating (and reconciling) 25 bugfix patches and 21 enhancement patches into two easy-to-apply super-patches.
