Release 0.3, 2007-12-31:
- Moved history-information to CHANGELOG-file.
- Two distribution archives become part of the release, one source-only
  variant, and one binary-distribution for i386/Linux. Archive
  unpaper-bin-0.3.tar.gz contains everything in unpaper-0.3.tar.gz, plus a
  binary executable file in folder bin/.
- The final distribution packages are now created with a standard-tar via
  shell execution. Older versions were tarred and gzipped by ANT 1.6.5's tar-
  task, which had shown incompatibities on some systems.
- Included a simple makefile make.sh. It runs with minimum requirements to the
  compiler, while being configurable for particular optimizations via $CFLAGS.
- Common style distribution package naming and content-layout, following the
  conventional patterns 'unpaper-0.x.tar.gz' for the archive file, which
  contains a root folder 'unpaper-0.x' and files 'unpaper-0.x/*' (request/bug
  #10793).
- Added --sheet-background option.
- Added --pre-shift and --post-shift options.
- Removed modes 'single-rotated' and 'double-rotated' for parameter --layout.
  (The documentation was ambiguous and the functionaity can better be achieved
  using --pre-rotate in combination with --layout single or --layout double.)
  The default layout mode is 'single' now, the old behaviour, when no --layout
  option was specified, can be achieved using --layout none.
- Corrected some language flaws in the docmentation. Thanks to Martin Collins.
- Renamed Readme.txt and License.txt to more common README and LICENSE.
- Fixed bug #11294: leading zeros in width/height values of pnm-files no longer
  cause problems.
- Fixed bug #9495: resizing/stretching of color-images now works.
- Fixed bug #7882: --pre-mirror h,v now correct when vertical resolution is odd

Release 0.2, 2006-05-09:
- Version number fallback to 0.2 (instead of counting up to 1.2). This better
  reflects the current development status and appears more suitable in an
  open-source context.
- User documentation with several explaining diagrams added, see file 
  'doc/index.html'.
- Color support added. Files of type PPM can be read, processed and written
  now. By default, unpaper uses the same image format for the output file as
  has been read from an input file, i.e. if your input is PPM, the output will
  be PPM automatically, if the input is PGM, the output will be PGM etc. Use
  parameter --type pbm|pgm|ppm to force an output file format independently
  from the input file format.
- Better image rotation implementation. Auto-rotation of pages is now done
  much faster. 
- The --cache option became obsolete (due to new image rotation 
  implementation).
- The compiler-switch -DNOSINCOS became obsolete (due to new image rotation
  implementation). It is no longer needed for compilation on some platforms.
- Changed to gcc version 4.1 for creating the Linux binary included in the
  distribution archive. gcc 4.1's executable appears to be about 20% faster
  than the one created with gcc 3.3.6.
- Added '-fomit-frame-pointer' and '-ftree-vectorize' to compiler options.
  (Thanks to Olaf Marzocchi for the hint about -ftree-vectorize.)
- Fix: the first pixel of an image is now correctly read (was read wrong in
  previous versions).
- Minor fixes.

Release 1.1, 2005-08-27:
- Single-page input sheets can now be joined to make 2-page output sheets.
  See options --input-pages [1|2] and --output-pages [1|2].
- Multiple input and output filename patterns can now be specified using the
  options --input-file-sequence and --output-file-sequence.
- Blank pages or sheets can be inserted into the sequence of input sheets
  using --insert-blank and/or --replace-blanks,  
- Zooming and stretching are now supported, see --stretch, --zoom and 
  --post-stretch, --post-zoom. 
- The sheet size can be set while keeping the content's aspect ratio (and
  centering it with best-fitting on the sheet) using --size and --post-size.
  For changing the sheet size without performing any stretching/zooming of
  content use --sheet-size.
- Faster rotation when deskewing images. The rotating algorithm has been
  optimized to run up to 4 times faster than before. Additional speedup 
  may be achieved by caching intermediate results of trigonometric calculations
  when processing multiple page. This caching uses a lot of memory, it
  can be enabled using the --cache switch.
- Rotation detection can now be configured to start at individual edges
  of the area to process. The parameter --deskew-scan-direction no longer
  takes v[ertical],h[orizontal] as values, but now l[eft],t[op],r[ight],
  b[ottom]. The default is 'l,r', which matches the previous version's
  default 'horizontal'.
- The behaviour of the 'double' template, used with the --layout parameter
  by specifying "--layout double", has been changed slightly. The input
  images are no longer assumed to be rotated by 90 degrees, as they would
  be when scanned from paper with a usual ADF-scanner. 
  That means, "--layout double" no longer implies "--pre-rotate 90" and
  "--post-rotate 90". To get the layout-template behaving as in earlier
  versions, use "--layout double-rotated", this behaves like the old 
  "--layout double".
- --border-align --border-margin allow to align page content heading towards
  one edge, but keeping a specified distance margin.
- Using the new parameter --blackfilter-scan-exclude [l,t,r,b], areas can
  be specified on which the blackfilter will not work. This is useful to
  exclude the blackfilter from working on inner page content, e.g. to 
  protect images with larger dark parts from deletion.
  Note that the --layout option may preset some blackfilter-scan-exclude 
  masks.
- The speed of the noisefilter has been optimized a bit.
- The default --mask-scan-step value has been changed from 10 to 5, which
  should sometimes lead to better mask-area detection.
- The default --deskew-scan-depth value has been changed from 0.66 to 0.5,
  should sometimes lead to better rotation detection.
- The default --black-treshold value has been changed from 0.5 to 0.33,
  which should give a better looking, more saturated result when converting
  grayscale images to black-and-white mode.
- Existing output files will no longer be overwritten by default. If an
  output file to be written already exists, the program terminates with an
  error instead. Overwriting can be allowed using the --overwrite switch.
- Fix: Setting the parameter --pre-rotate or --post-rotate to 0 will no
  longer issue a useless warning message.
- Tested on MacOS X, additional compilation instructions for MacOS have been
   added to the documentation.
- Tested on SPARC Solaris.
- Compiler switch -DNOSINCOS disables use of the sincos() function, which
  preserves compatibility with math libraries that do not provide this
  function.

Release 1.0.1, 2005-03-14:
- Syntax cleanups, better ANSI-C compatibility to solve some compiler issues.
  Using the -pedantic compiler switch, only warnings with intended origin are
  still issued.
- Minor changes to the usage-info.

Release 1.0, 2005-03-01:
- Initial release.
