6There is one new feature:
7
8- the Win32 font driver now supports UTF8 (RT 22166)
9
10Several bugs were fixed:
11
12- the string() method would not output the string "0" (RT 21770)
13
14- fills.c was failing to compile on Solaris 10 (compiler unknown) (RT 21944)
15
16- the gif_disposal and gif_user_input tags weren't being read from the file
17 correctly (RT 22192)
18
19- Win32 font driver fixes:
20 - the global descent value from bounding box was the wrong sign
21 - if the first or last glyph overflowed the left or right side of
22 the advance width they would be clipped
23
24- gif.c was failing to build under MSVC (RT 23922)
25
26- in some cases strings passed to the string() method were treated as
27 terminated by NUL (chr 0) (RT 21770)
28
29- on "MSWin32" perl builds we now link to -lzlib instead of -lz since
30 that's the default build name for zlib on Win32. (RT 23064)
31
32- search $Config{incpath} for headers too, which we should have been
33 doing all along.
