Dear subscriber,

glennrp just announced version 1.2.39 of libpng on

The changes are as follows:

This release adds a prototype for png_64bit_product() in png.h. A possible NULL
dereference is avoided in debug build, in png_set_text_2(). Any attempt to write
an iCCP chunk with a negative embedded profile length is rejected. The configure
scripts have been rebuilt with autoconf-2.64. The *.tar.lzma files have been
replaced with *.tar.xz in this distribution.

Project description:

libpng (PNG library) is a collection of routines used 
to create and manipulate PNG format graphics files. 
The PNG format was designed as a replacement for 
GIF and, to a lesser extent, TIFF, with many 
improvements and extensions.
