				History

This program was written by a German university student named Alexander
Lehmann <alex@hal.rhein-main.de> in 1995. He evolved it to a beta
version 0.6 and then dropped off the face of the net.  In Fall 1999,
after the program had been stable and in production use for four years, 
Greg Roelofs <newt@pobox.com> added some minor features and released 0.7.

A short time later, with Greg's consent, I took over maintaining
gif2png in order to give it a proper manual page and release
packaging. Alexander Lehmann is OK with this and has even approved
a change in the license terms to use the libpng/zlib license.

2.2.5:
	* Deal gracefully with files that have leading numerics in the name.
	* Bernhard Reiter's fix to use relative pathnames.

2.2.4:
	* On -O, set maximum compression when writing the conversion.
	* New -g option to write a gamma chunk by Glenn Randers-Pehrson.
	* Configure option --with-png to set libpng header/library location.

2.2.3:
	* Corrected the warning in the README and on the web page.

        permission) to the libpng/zlib license.

	* discard optional preceding # on gif2png -b option value.

	with a specified background color.

	the png library properly.
