Summary of changes since libspectre 0.2.0                                                                                                                           

This is a bugfix only release. There are no API changes at all.

Fixes and improvements in the PostScript parser:

 - Support DOS EPS files (Bug #16810)
 - A work around for some invalid documents generated by some versions
   of Mozilla has been added. (Bug #14384)
 - PS-AdobeFont comments are not considered as begining of a nested
   document anymore so that the font code is not ignored.

Portability fixes:

 - Alternative implementation of spectre_strdup_vprintf for platforms
   where vasprintf is not available (Bug #15127)
 - Implement _spectre_get_pid for win32 (Bug #16309)
 - Open files in binary mode for win32 compatibility (Bug #16309)
 - Fix endianness bug

Several cleanups and improvements have been made in the code and lots
of compile warnings have been fixed.
