I've put together a release candidate. Please give it a test and let
me know if there are any issues with the package. This will become an
official release on monday, barring any issues.
Please keep in mind though that this is the year-old 8.50 release and
doesn't include any of the bug fixes the tree has seen since. Those
changes remain available under the AFPL license. I have however upgraded
the external libraries (libjpeg, zlib, libpng, jbig2dec and jasper) to
their respective latest releases, so that code is newer than in the
original AFPL 8.50 release.
