PDFKIT 1.0.0


I am pleased to announce that yesterday I released a new version of PDFKit, 
which comes originally from GSImageApps.

The main focus is the update to xpdf 3.0.4 sources instead of the old 
3.0.2+patches. xpdf 3.0.4 is now dual licensed GPL v2 and v3.

Further news are:
* fixes in Media vs. Crop size, which made certain PDFs display with artifacts, 
the bridge code now exposes both
* fixes to work with newer compilers and other issues with multi-document usage 
(fix usage of static objects)
* change the way compiler and linker flags are passed to xpdf, by using 
freetype-config: fixes NetBSD after so many years (OpenBSD still requires a 
minor hack, since I suppose its freetype-config is broken)
* various clean-up in the make files
* some minor API changes to be a little more Apple-like or expose sizes 

The upgrade to xpdf 3.0.4 needed an API change, the release was bumped and 
applications need a recompile. As far as I could I checked and no regressions 
are known.

What is PDFKit: a PDF display library which wraps xpdf as a display engine

The current version is available here:

Happy new 2017 full of GNUstep hacking!
