[UNSTABLE] Pango-0.13 released

Pango-0.13 has been released. This is a preview release and is
meant for:

 * those interested in the development of Pango. 
 * People planning to port to the upcoming GTK+-2.0 version of GTK+.
   Note: the APIs have not yet been frozen and significant
   changes may still occur before GTK+-2.0 and Pango-1.0 are

Pango is a library for layout and rendering of text, with an 
emphasis on internationalization. It forms the core of
text and font handling for GTK+-2.0.

For more information about Pango, see http://www.pango.org.

Pango-0.13 is available for download from:

Pango-0.13 also requires GLib-1.3.2:


As a change from Pango-0.12, a separate copy of FriBidi is not
required to install Pango-0.13. Pango includes an internal
copy of the routines that it needs, though it can optionally
be compiled to use the routines from an external FriBidi

This is a an unstable preview release and should not be used in
production. Only minimal testing has been done, and we expect that
significant bugs and portability problems remain at this point.

Bug reports and comments about Pango should be sent to
