A new major pixman release 0.20.0 is now available. Highlights of this

* Gradient improvements
  - Radial gradients follow the PDF specification [Andrea Canciani]
  - Large linear gradients are rendered much more accurately [Andrea]
  - Conical gradients now work much better [Søren Sandmann Pedersen]

* Performance improvements
  - Faster image scaling [Siarhei Siamashka]
  - Faster affine transformations [Søren]
  - Improvements to the ARM NEON [Siarhei]
  - Improvements to the SSE2 backend [Siarhei, Søren]

Plus a large number of bug and portability fixes, and improvements to
the test suite.
