Dear FIM/Fbi IMproved users,

I am happy to announce the release of fim-0.5-rc0.

This is a major release: it brings a lot of features and changes
with respect to the previous one (0.4).

The main user-visible changes are:

 * display of per-image description text, which can be
   loaded from a text file via the --load-image-descriptions-file switch
 * per-image-group properties/tagging syntax for the description file
 * search on file name and image descriptions text with '/' and '?'
 * status line and SDL window caption customizable with expandos
 * load from directories recursively with -R / --recursive
 * EXIF based orientation (rotation) support
 * EXIF tags loading into variables usable e.g. in the status line
 * 'limit' command to filter the displayed images list
   on e.g. filename, description, EXIF value or other...
 * faster image scaling with mipmaps
 * jump back and forth between two images remembering alignment/scaling
 * resize the SDL window to image size with 'W' / --autowindow
 * new formats support: JPEG-2000 (via JasPer) + PCX (native)
 * open a file at an offset (experimental)
 * open files in CBZ,CBR,RAR,TAR,TGZ,TBZ,7Z,ISO,... archives
   (experimental, via libarchive)

  have to get the files first)

As always, feedback is very appreciated: I am very grateful to the users
that the time have provided critiques, suggestions, useful bug reports,
patches or new code!
