dia 0.97 - finally released

After more than two years of spare-time development Dia 0.97 just got released. You can get it at http://download.gnome.org/sources/dia/0.97/

Some highlights:
 * High quality cross-platform print and pdf output by use of cairo. [1]
 * Rotated text, but only with the new "Standard - Ouline" object. [2]
 * Object properties dialog finally does handle multiple objects. [3]
 * Improved text edit mode for consistent handling of the Delete key.
 * A new integrated user interface mode with diagrams in tabs. [4]
 * Almost 200 bugs and feature requests resolved [5] [6]

Special thanks to:
  Lars Clausen - maintaining Dia for more than five years, text edit,
    units and much more
  Steffen Macke - keeping Dia buildable on win32 and Linux, maintaining
    the win32 installer, consistent icon size and more
  Sameer D. Sahasrabuddhe - resolving the oldest feature request
    (multiple object change) and fixing a bunch of long-standing bugs
  Marcel Toele - contributing the ability for custom shapes with subshapes
  Petr Novotnik - contributing dedicated database shapes
  Thomas Harding - doing a documentation overhaul
  Mark Dexter - huge documentaton update
  Patrick Hallinan - contributing the integrated UI patches
  Elie Roux - contributing Ligths shapes and a lot less compiler warnings
  ... - everyone else translating, providing patches or reporting bugs
