Announcement text:
2005/09/23 v2.04
* New features:
    - preparation for usage of additional - driver-provided - color
    - `pstricks' users may now specify explicit color parameters within
      \psset and related commands, e.g. \psset{linecolor=[rgb]{1,0,0}};
      an illustrative example is given in xcolor2.tex.
* Changes:
    - color model names sanitized (i.e., turned to catcode 12)
      throughout the package;
    - \@namelet command deprecated because of name clash with
      `memoir' - please use \XC at let@cc instead
      (more \XC at let@.. commands are available as well);
    - simplified color conversion code by using the new \XC at ifxcase
    - some minor changes to internal macros.

Thanks for the upload.
