- build against ImageMagick 7
+ pstoedit-imagemagick7.patch
2016-03-04 -

2015-03-13 -
- Fix plugin search algorithm (pstoedit-pkglibdir.patch).
- Drop patches:
* pstoedit-parallel.patch: It was apparently autotools fault.
* pstoedit-3.50-plugin-close.patch: Triggering bnc#680125 is
fixed since 12.2.
* pstoedit-3.60-libdl.patch: Patch is correct, but not needed.
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.
