Update Information:

2.016     2011-01-24

    - New Maintainer: Steve Simms (http://deefs.net)
    - This release jumps from version 0.73 to 2.016 in order to
      provide a consistent version number across all modules in the
      distribution without breaking any existing code or going
    - Lots of updates to the documentation, particularly in
      PDF::API2::Content, which was almost completely rewritten and
    - Font::TTF has been added as a dependency instead of being
      embedded in the distribution.
    - Everything that worked in 0.73 should work unmodified in 2.016,
      at least if it used the published documentation, and most
      everything should still work even if it didn't.
    - PDF::API2 used to read and parse three text files, one of which
      was over 500kB, on every load.  These files have been turned
      into modules, and while I haven't done any performance testing,
      I'd have a hard time believing that it isn't faster now.
    - There are now a few tests forming the beginning of a test suite.
      Contributions of tests would be most welcome!
