A new release 0.19.4 of the pixman rendering library is now
available. This is a development snapshot leading up to a stable
0.20.0 release.

News in this release:
- More ARM NEON fast paths [Siarhei Siamashka]
- Faster NEAREST scaling [Siarhei]
- Faster BILINEAR scaling [Soren Sandmann]
- Faster glyph rendering [Soren]
- Improvements to the test suite [Dmitri Vorobiev, Siarhei, Jonathan Morton]

Plust bug fixes and cleanups [Benjamin Otte, Maarten Bosmans, Siarhei,
Soren, Tor Lillqvist]

NOTE: There is a known memory leak in this release when pixman is used
in multi-threaded programs on Windows. This bug is present in the 0.18
stable series as well. If you know how to fix it, please do.

Please report bugs by sending email to pixman at lists.freedesktop.org,
or by filing an issue in bugzilla:
