Summary description: A build system for tex4ht

Announcement text:

This release contains lot of changes:

- added support for non-ASCII characters and spaces in filenames of the
  compiled files
- many ODT format fixes:
  - the ODT file packing is done by make4ht itself, instead of t4ht
  - it enables execution of filters on the generated XML files
  - filter which fixes issues with Unicode is executed by default
  - fixed many ODT validity issues

These fixes obsoletes the old way of conversion from TeX to ODT using
`mk4ht oolatex` - the old method may in many cases produce an invalid
ODT file. The preferred way is `make4ht -f odt` from now.

- new extension: dvisvgm_hashes
  - this extension uses Dvisvgm to generate pictures in the SVG format
  - it generates only pictures that have been changed between
  - it can utilize multiple CPU cores for the compilation
