There's a new release of the eel library available. This new version of
the general-purpose library that's used by Nautilus contains some
speed-ups and bug fixes.
This new version of eel has no new requirements that are different from
the eel 1.0. Specifically, this eel will work with either librsvg 1.0.0 or
librsvg 1.0.1 and with either Nautilus 1.0.3 or Nautilus 1.0.4.
Even though Nautilus will work with either the old or new version,
Nautilus users should get an updated eel for best results. Packagers may
want to create Nautilus 1.0.4 packages that request eel 1.0.1, since it
has bug fixes that help Nautilus users.
Summary of the changes since 1.0:
Speed up drawing of solid backgrounds. (Alex Larsson)
