+Release 1.2.4 (2006-08-18 Carl Worth <cworth at cworth.org>)
+This is the second bug fix release in the 1.2 series, coming less than
+two weeks after the 1.2.2 release made on August 8.
+The big motivation for a quick release was that there were a log of
+build system snags that people ran into with the 1.2.2 release. But,
+by the time we got those all done, we found that we had a bunch of
+fixes for cairo's rendering as well. So there's a lot of goodness in
+here for such a short time period.
+Rendering fixes
+Fix image surfaces to not be clipped when used as a source (Vladimir Vukicevic)
+Fix a couple of corner cases in dashing degenerate paths (Jeff Muizelaar)
+Fix support for type1 fonts on win32 (Adrian Johnson)
+Fix assertion failure when rotating bitmap fonts (Carl Worth)
+Fix assertion failure when calling cairo_text_path with bitmap fonts (Carl Worth)
+Fix mis-handling of cairo_close_path in some situations (Tim Rowley, Carl Worth)
+Respect font_matrix translation in _cairo_gstate_glyph_path (Behdad Esfahbod)
+Fix vertical metrics adjustment to work with non-identity shapes (Behdad Esfahbod)
+[PS] Set correct ImageMatrix in _cairo_ps_surface_emit_bitmap_glyph_data (Behdad Esfahbod)
+Build system fixes
+Fix xlib detection to prefer pkg-config to avoid false libXt dependency (Behdad Esfahbod)
+Fix typos causing win32 build problem with PS,PDF, and SVG backends (Behdad Esfahbod)
+Fix configure cache to not use stale results (Behdad Esfahbod)
+Fix to not pass unsupported warning options to the compiler (Jens Granseuer)
+Fix to allow env. variables such as png_REQUIRES to override configure detection (Jens Granseuer)
+Fix test suite to not use an old system cairo when converting svg2png (Behdad Esfahbod)
+Fix test suite to not require signal.h to be present (Behdad Esfahbod)
+Code cleanups
+Many useful warnings cleanups from sparse, valgrind, and careful eyes
+(Kjartan Maraas, Pavel Roskin)
