Lasem 0.3.0 released


Lasem 0.3.0 "Pourquoi pas" is now available.

Lasem is a library for rendering SVG and Mathml, implementing a DOM like
API. It's based on GObject and use Pango and Cairo for the rendering.
Included in the package, there is a simple application, lasemrender,
which is able to convert a Mathml, a latex math or a SVG file to either
a PNG, PDF or SVG image.

Lasem is now LGPLv2+ licensed, thanks to a change of the itex2mml license by
Paul Gartside and Jacques Distler.

This is a new unstable release, parallel installable with the previous stable one.

The MathML part is still supposed to be in better shape than the SVG one, but
both should be usable in a "parse and render" scenario.

Here are the changes since the last announced release:

        Switch to LGPLv2+ licence (was GPLv2+ previously).

        Update to 1.3.22.

        Use pango_cairo_show_layout for text fill.
        font-weight, font-style, font-stretch and text-anchor support.
        <tspan> support.
        Fix position of outermost <svg>.
        href support for <pattern>.
        href support for <radialGradient>.
