So one week after the scheduled date, we have released Poppler 0.7.2.

This is the first release candidate of what will be Poppler 0.8

From now on no API nor ABI changes are allowed unless TOTALLY necessary. Only 
bugfixes until we release and branch 0.8

We will try to follow the planned schedule with a 1 week delay applied, that 
 * March 19 -> Poppler 0.7.3 (0.8 RC 2) 
 * March 26 -> Poppler 0.8.0

And now onto the changes

Major Changes:
 * Improve font matching not forcing default values onto Fontconfig
 * Add preliminary annotations support in the glib frontend
 * Initial Movie support in the core
 * Make GDK dependency optional in glib bindings

Minor Changes:
 * Make the core able to read mime types of embedded files
 * Qt4 API for accessing mime types of embedded files
 * Handle correctly check state of optional content groups
   regarding parents state
 * Avoid setting singular CTM matrices on the Cairo backend
 * Improved Qt4 API to get character position
 * Qt4 api documentation improvements
 * Qt4 minor stability fixes
 * Proper lib64 Qt detection
