NOTE 1: Two functions changed in this version of cairomm, so any
applications using these functions will need to be updated (see
"Changed API" section below).

Applications will not need to be updated when future versions of
cairomm are released.

  - Context::clear_path() is now Context::begin_new_path()
  - Context::new_sub_path() is now Context::begin_new_sub_path()
* new API:
  - Win32Surface::get_dc()
  - Win32Surface::create() for device-independent bitmaps
* Bugfixes
  - fixed a memory leak where C++ wrapper objects were not being destroyed
* Fixes for compiling with MSVC (also includes project and resource files for
  Visual Studio 2005.  See the MSVC/ directory)
