    Change release targets as appropriate for a snapshot, not a release.
    The big change here is to change the upload directory to be the snapshots directory
    rather than the releases directory. We also use make dist rather than make distcheck
    since there are currently a few tests still failing.

+Snapshot 1.1.2 (2006-04-25 Carl Worth <cworth at cworth.org>)
+This is the first in a series of snapshots working toward the upcoming
+1.2 release of cairo. (Subsequent snapshot will use sucessive even
+numbers for the third digit, 1.1.4, 1.1.6, etc.) This snapshot is
+backwards-compatible with the 1.0 series---it makes a few API
+additions but does not remove any API.
+PostScript and PDF backends are no longer "experimental"
+The major theme of the 1.2 release is improved PostScript and PDF
+backends for cairo. Unlike the 1.0 series, in the 1.2 series these
+backends will not be marked as experimental and will be enabled by
+default. We encourage people to test this snapshot and the PS/PDF
+backends in particular as much as possible.
+The PostScript and PDF output is not yet ideal.
+ * One major problem with the PostScript output is that image
+   fallbacks are used more often than strictly necessary, and the
+   image fallbacks are at a lower resolution than desired, (the
+   cairo_ps_surface_set_dpi call is ignored).
+  * The major drawback of the current PDF backend implementation is
+    its text support. Every glyph is represented by a filled path in
+    the PDF file. The causes file sizes to be much larger and
+    rendering to be much slower than desired.
+It is anticipated that both of these shortcomings will see some
+improvements before the final 1.2 release.
+In spite of those shortcomings, we hope that the PS and PDF backends
+will yield faithful results for pretty much any cairo operations you
+can throw at them. Please let us know if you are getting obviously
+"different" results from the PS/PDF backends than from the image or
+xlib backends.
+Other new experimental backends
+This snapshot includes three new backends that did not exist in the
+1.0 series:
+	* beos backend
+	* directfb backend
+	* svg backend
+These are all currently marked "experimental" and are disabled by
+default. But the SVG backend in particular has seen a lot of recent
+development and is very close to passing the entire cairo test
+suite. It is possible that this backend will become a fully supported
+backend by the time of the cairo 1.2 release.
+Public API additions
+There have been a few new API functions added to cairo, including:
+New get_type functions for querying sub-types of object:
+	cairo_surface_get_type
+	cairo_pattern_get_type
+	cairo_font_face_get_type
+	cairo_scaled_font_get_type
+More convenience in working with cairo_scaled_font_t with new getter
+	cairo_scaled_font_get_font_face
+	cairo_scaled_font_get_font_matrix
+	cairo_scaled_font_get_ctm
+	cairo_scaled_font_get_font_options
+As well as a convenience function for setting a scaled font into a
+cairo context:
+	cairo_set_scaled_font
+and a function to allow text extents to be queried directly from a
+scaled font, (without requiring a cairo_surface_t or a cairo_t):
+	cairo_scaled_font_text_extents
+These new scaled font functions were motivated by the needs of the
+pango library.
+Finally, a new path-construction function was added which clears the
+current point in preparation for a new sub path. This makes cairo_arc
+easier to use in some situations:
+	cairo_new_sub_path
+Before the 1.2 release is final we do still plan a few more API
+additions specifically motivated by the needs of Mozilla/Firefox.
+Optimizations and bug fixes
+Shortly after the 1.0 maintenance series branched off the mainline
+there was a major rework of the cairo font internals. This should
+provide some good performance benefits, but it's also another area
+people should look at closely for potential regressions.
+There has not yet been any widespread, systematic optimization of
+cairo, but various performance improvements have been made, (and some
+of them are fairly significant). So if some things seem faster than
+1.0 then things are good. If there are any performance regressions
+compared to 1.0 then there is a real problem and we would like to hear
+about that.
+There has been a huge number of bug fixes---too many to mention in
+detail. Again, things should be better, and never worse compared to
+1.0. Please let us know if your testing shows otherwise.

 Here are the steps to follow to create a new cairo release:
 1) Ensure that there are no local, uncommitted modifications.
-   It's probably good enough if "git diff" doesn't output anything.
+   It's probably good enough if "git diff HEAD" doesn't output
+   anything and your "master" and "origin" branchs are at the current
+   revision.
 2) Verify that the code passes "make distcheck"
