A new pixman release 0.33.2 is now available. This is a release candidate for 
a stable 0.34.0 release.

This release comes after little more than 1 year since the previous release 
(0.32.6). Therefore, the git log is quite long and there are multiple changes, 
fixes and enhancements.

The main changes are:

- ARMv6 - Many fast paths implementations were added
- PPC64/PPC64LE - Fix all outstanding bugs and add many fast paths 
implementations using vmx
- Major enhancements to lowlevel-blt-bench utility
- A couple of fixes and enhancements to mmx code

As I mentioned above, many more fixes and improvements to various parts 
of the code.

Please test, and report bugs to the mailing list at pixman 
at lists.freedesktop.org.

To anyone interested, I would like to note that I intend to package this 
release for Fedora in the next few days.

Finally, on a personal level, many thanks to pixman veterans (almost all of 
them appear in the git log below) who helped me to facilitate this release. 
I hope that from now on pixman will have more frequent releases.
