in short:

Maintenance release.
Fixed several memory-leaks with the help of Gregg Kelly, added/fixed some CMS
handling, exported JPEG functions from standard DLL, and some other minor fixes.

The CMS fix now makes libmng automagically work in MNG_FULL_CMS mode as a
sRGB compliant system. YOU WILL NEED TO CHANGE THIS IF YOU ARE NOT ON AN sRGB
COMPLIANT SYSTEM AND WANT TO USE CMS!!!!
(look in libmng.h for the proper function-calls)

1.0.0 (Feb 6th 2001)
--------------------

in short:

First public release. Finally(!)

This is the 0.9.5 CVS version, which will never be released, because I feel it
is now ready for a public release. So apart from the version-numbers here and
there, all other changes are listed under 0.9.5.

This library will work with every MNG/JNG known and available to me. Note that
there are still parts that need to be coded, and that MNG support is around
90-95% (JNG at 100%). It is however compliant with the latest and greatest
MNG 1.0 specification.

I hope to dedicate a bit more time this year to finish up full support and fill
in the remaining blanks. But this is coming out of my spare time. And extra
help is always appreciated.

Please enjoy!

0.9.3 (October 29th 2000)

in short:

Another beta release. The number of changes in the MNG specification have
resulted in a lot of new code and some changed code. At the same time I saw
no need to withhold some new functionality as it was pretty clear there was
going to be another beta-round. If things go well, I'm going to try to release
libmng 1.0.0 very shortly after this one.

0.9.0 (June 30th 2000)
----------------------

in short:

This is the first beta!!! Yippee!!!

Thanks to all the people who helped to guide me in the right direction.
You know who you are!

A special thanks to the guys with early implementations, who stood by and
put up with my whims :-)
