WARNING: This is a unstable release, it is actually 0.20 RC 1 release, it 
should work like any release from the 0.18 branch, but do not blame us if it 
turns your The Rolling Stones vinyls into The Beatles ones.

Changes against the 0.19.3 release:
 * Annotation improvements
 * More compatible file writing
 * SplashOutputDev: Fix slow rendering of pdf with a lot of image masks in 
pattern colorspace
 * Fix crashes in broken documents
 * Fix spurious warning messages
 * pdftotext: Add missing section heading to man page
 * pdftohtml: Fix crash when the destination file does not exist
build system:
 * autoconf: Do not append "-ansi" to CXXFLAG, if "-std=XXX" is already 
 * autoconf: Do not clear FREETYPE_CFLAGS, FREETYPE_LIBS before 
 * autoconf: Copying graphics library CFLAGS to cpp frontend Makefile.am

Testing, patches and bug reports welcome.
