Summary description: Converter from PNG to PDF, Update and Bugfix
License type: gpl

Announcement text:
The png2pdf program converts PNG images to PDF.
An alpha channel in the PNG file can be used to
mix against a specified background color and/or
to create a PDF image mask or PDF alpha channel.

An option "-n" or "--interpolation" was created
to add an "/Interpolate true" entry to the image
dictionary. This suggests PDF viewers to show an
interpolated image on screen.
Previous versions possibly crashed/dumped core
when problems occured while reading PNG files.
The libpng routines use the setjmp()/longjmp()
mechanism on errors but png2pdf did not set up
a jump buffer. This is fixed now.


Thanks for the update.
