    Just recreated distribution with a changed SIGNATURE.

    Release 1.38_50

    Don't allow XXE (XML External Entities) processing while parsing
    SVG files. Addresses RT #118205. This is a potentially

    Pod typo fixes (by hatorikibble)

    Release 1.36_51

    Use IO::Scalar instead of opening a scalar, for all
    perls < 5.21.7. This is to prevent possible segmentation faults
    with faulty images. See RT #100847 and
    https://rt.perl.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=123443

    Fix a "Variable declared in conditional statement" error.

    Fix a couple of typos.

    Release 1.32

    Stable release with all changes in 1.31_50..1.31_51

2010-02-09  Slaven Rezic  <slaven@rezic.de>

    Release 1.30_53

    Repacked because Module::Install 0.93 does not ignore xt tests.
    See https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=54450

    Release 1.30_52

    width/height...)

2009-11-22  Slaven Rezic  <slaven@rezic.de>

    Fixes in GIF reader (unknown intro codes are now only warnings,
    application chunks are forced into the first image data)

    Added some test images for previous fixes.

2009-11-14  Slaven Rezic  <slaven@rezic.de>

    Release 1.30_50

    Support for Microsoft .ico files (Image::Info::ICO).

    Fixes in JPEG parsing (skip pad 0xFF in markers).

    Fixes in GIF reader ("trailer" seems to be optional).

    Somewhat better recognition of XBM files.

    XPM handling: Corrected color parsing. Try harder to find X11's
    rgb.txt. Ignore comments in rgb.txt.

    Reordered magic checks to have more common image formats first.

    Introduced Bundles.

    Some Pod cleanups.

    Additional author tests in xt.    

2009-10-31  Slaven Rezic  <srezic@cpan.org>

    Release 1.30

    Stable release with all changes in 1.29_51..1.29_53

2009-09-23  Slaven Rezic  <srezic@cpan.org>

    Release 1.29_53

    SVG parsing: load_ext_dtd is now set to false, to avoid unnecessary
    possible network connections; this is also ceasing errors with
    libxml 2.7.x.

2009-09-16  Slaven Rezic  <srezic@cpan.org>

    Release 1.29_52

    More diagnostics in failing tests.
    Added tests cases for RT #49546.

2009-09-14  Slaven Rezic  <srezic@cpan.org>

    Release 1.29_51

    Fixed "substr outside of string" problem with Fujifilm FinePix S1000fd
    images (RT #49546)

2009-08-14  Slaven Rezic  <srezic@cpan.org>

    Release 1.29_50

    Marked Compress::Zlib as recommended module and skip a test if it is
    not installed (RT #48415)

2009-07-31  Slaven Rezic  <srezic@cpan.org>

    Release 1.29

    SVG parsing is now done by XML::LibXML::Reader, if available,
    otherwise the old XML::Simple-based code is used. Using the
    new code is much more memory efficient and faster. The old
    module can still be used by setting
    @Image::Info::SVG::PREFER_MODULE

    Removed deprecation notice.

    Bundled Module::Install 0.91.

    Ceased a warning in the JPEG parsing code with perl 5.6.x.

    Lowered minimum required Perl version to 5.6.0 (There's no
    evidence that it does not work with that Perl version).

    Ceased warnings when reading PNG files with ztxt (compressed
    comment) chunk (RT #28054)

2008-03-30 v1.28 Tels 128 tests
  * raise minimum required Perl version to v5.6.2
    (it doesn't work on 5.005 anyway, open() with three arguments
     is not supported there and I don't have time to rewrite the code
     for outdated Perl versions. If you need it to run on 5.005, write
     a patch and file a bug report please.)
  * fix bug #15167: Incorrect width and height for JPG files
    (the fix now keeps the highest value for width/height, instead of
     creating an array ref with all the values)
