I guess sometime in two weeks from now. The work of integration will
simplify PDFKit and won't cause much work. That's at least what i guess
after looking at the release yesterday evening.

The exepermintal feature will become the default :-) You won't have
any other options (see below).

The new version will use the rasterizer from xpdf instead of implementing
it's own. The rasterizer produces an image, that's what the current
'experimental feature'balso does. The new rasterizer will be even faster
(as far as i can see now) and be usable on xlib and backart. The only
requirement is the freetype library, but that's a requirement for backart
too plus this lib should be installed on most systems.
