pdfTeX 3.141592-1.40.0-beta-20060811 was released on 2006-08-11
- renamed primitives:
    \primitive -> \pdfprimitive
    \ifprimitive -> \ifpdfprimitive
    \ifabsdim -> \ifpdfabsdim
    \ifabsnum -> \ifpdfabsnum
- new version of \primitive/\ifprimitive (but see above)
- new dimen: \pdfpxdimen
- support for jbig2 files
- new library: obsdcompat, which has improved string functions and allows the
  use of __attribute__
- update libpng to 1.2.12
- added JFIF detection patch to writejpg.c (was bug 548)
- bugfix: truetype OS/2 v3 fonts (594)
- bugfix: file with only \immediate\pdfobj stream results in garbage (505)
- bugfix: invalid pdf created if font name contains space (509)

Please have a look at libs/obsdcompat; it has a bunch of very nice
(and safe) string functions. And it allows the safe use of the
__attribute__-feature of gcc.
