* Fri Mar 13 2015

- Update to version 3.70
  * some code improvement
  * removed the -DBUGGYGPP compile flag since now g++ can compile the

    be removed later.
  * enabled more warnings when compiling with g++ and fixed some
    resulting warnings.
  * changed the autoconf part to better support the inclusion of
    libzip for the pptx driver.
  * included a lot of documentation corrections
  * using non case sensitive comparison when determining the target
    format from the file suffix.
  * using more STL classes instead of older private replacements
    (string and vector). In this context also some hard coded limits
    were removed.
  * fixed an assertion violation when using -ssp and a closepath occurred.
  * added the dump of the font name for the DXF format.
    prototype of a "simulate fill" option for emulating filling by stroking.
    This is based on fillpoly.c from the hp2xx project. This is still kind
    of experimental.
