Librsvg 2.40.20 is released and is the last release in the 2.40.x series


I have just released librsvg-2.40.20.  This is the last release that I
will make in the 2.40.x series - the C-only version.

This release is to avoid having unreleased commits in the 2.40 branch. 
It also has a security fix.

People are *STRONGLY* encouraged to switch to 2.41.x as soon as
possible.  Librsvg 2.41.x is ABI and API compatible with 2.40.x, so it
is a drop-in replacement.  You only need a Rust toolchain to compile
it.  If you or your distro can compile Firefox 57, you can probably
compile librsvg 2.41 without problems.

Librsvg 2.40.20 is available here:

What's new in this release:

- Except for emergencies, this will be the LAST RELEASE of the
  librsvg-2.40.x series.  We are moving to 2.41, which is vastly
  improved over the 2.40 series.  The API/ABI there remain unchaged,
  so we strongly encourage you to upgrade your sources and binaries to
- bgo#761175 - Allow masks and clips to reuse a node being drawn.
- Don't access the file system when deciding whether to load a remote
  file with a UNC path for a paint server (i.e. don't try to load it at all).
- Vistual Studio: fixed and integrated introspection builds, so
  introspection data is built directly from the Visual Studio project
  (Chun-wei Fan).
- Visual Studio: We now use HIGHENTROPYVA linker option on x64 builds,
  to enhance the security of built binaries (Chun-wei Fan).
- Fix generation of Vala bindings when compiling in read-only source
  directories (Emmanuele Bassi).
