So, what's new in pre7? (I didn't d/l & install it yet, just the changelog 
wasn't updated as per yet.

Oh yeah.... Imagine a more or less complete Unicode of pngs, to deal with: 
actually, 4 full sets of serifs (roman, bold, italics, bold italics) + 4 more 
of the same for sans with each set of ~7300 glyphs, plus "serifed" and "sans" 
CJK etc., ~27000 glyphs in each. Tar.bz2 bugfix release of this would well 
weigh that side of 100 MByte. Unsere Rosie macht uns Hosie, by that 
development. Time to switch to xft/freetype2 support, really.
Sei gesund!
 I will ASAP put it
