    2         Releasing GNU libextractor 1.0.0. 
    3 
    4 Fri Aug 17 21:28:33 CEST 2012
    5     	Major changes to plugin mechanism now allow out-of-process
    6 	plugins full random-access to the entire file.  Most plugins
    7 	have now been rewritten to the new plugin API (0.7).  The external
    8 	(libextractor) API will remain unchanged and compatible with LE 0.6.
    9 
   10 	As part of the rewrite, many plugins were changed to use 
   11 	standard 3rd party libraries (libjpeg, libtiff, libgif, 
   12 	libtidy, libmagic) for parsing.  A new plugin based on
   13 	gstreamer replaces many existing multimedia plugins.
   14 
   15 	Automated testcases for (almost all) of the plugins
   16 	were also written and the documentation was updated.
   17 
   18 	The license was changed to GNU GPL v3+.  
   19 	PDF support removed (GPLv2-only).
