2015-03-12 -
- Update to version 3.70
* some code improvement
* removed the -DBUGGYGPP compile flag since now g++ can compile the
code without it. The former work-arounds are still there but will
be removed later.
* enabled more warnings when compiling with g++ and fixed some
resulting warnings.
* changed the autoconf part to better support the inclusion of
libzip for the pptx driver.
* included a lot of documentation corrections
* using non case sensitive comparison when determining the target
format from the file suffix.
* using more STL classes instead of older private replacements
(string and vector). In this context also some hard coded limits
were removed.
* fixed an assertion violation when using -ssp and a closepath occurred.
* added the dump of the font name for the DXF format.
prototype of a "simulate fill" option for emulating filling by stroking.
This is based on fillpoly.c from the hp2xx project. This is still kind
of experimental.
