Summary: Utility for Tracing a Bitmap to Scalable Outline Image
Potrace is a utility for tracing a bitmap, which means, transforming a
bitmap into a smooth, scalable image.  The input is a bitmap (PBM, PGM,
PPM, or BMP), and the default output is one of several vector file
formats.  A typical use is to create EPS files from scanned data, such
as company or university logos, handwritten notes, etc. The resulting
image is not "jaggy" like a bitmap, but smooth. It can then be rendered
at any resolution.

  - Do not use clang to build: even though it is the preferred
    compiler, it moves potrace behind an 8h-long build of llvm/clang,
    which in turn holds up building of the entire Distribion, as
    potrace is used by texlive which in turn provides many modules to
    be used for documentation building across the board.
* Mon Aug 28 2017
  - clang currently does not support -fstack-clash-protector.
* Mon Aug 07 2017
  - Update to version 1.15:
    * Fix potential buffer overflows and arithmetic overflows
      (bsc#1051634, CVE-2017-12067).
    * Fix bug triggered by very large bitmaps.
    * Other bugfixes.
  - Build position independent binaries.
  - Process with spec-cleaner.
  - Work around failure of -fstack-protector on s390x.
* Tue Feb 28 2017
  - Update to version 1.14:
    * Bugs triggered by malformed BMP files have been fixed,
      including CVE-2016-8685 (bsc#1005026) and CVE-2016-8686.
    * Error reporting has been improved.
    * The image size is now truncated when the bitmap data ends
    * It is now possible to use negative dy in bitmap data.
  - Upstream prefers clang to compile potrace. Use clang if possible.
* Fri Oct 23 2015
  - Update to version 1.13:
    * Some critical bugs in the processing of BMP files were fixed
    * Portability was improved for C99 and for MSVC++.
* Thu Apr 02 2015
  - Update to version 1.12:
    * fix memory overflow bug triggered by very large bitmaps
      (bsc#924904, CVE-2013-7437)
    * minor fixes
* Wed Feb 20 2013
  - Update to version 1.11:
    * A GeoJSON backend was added.
    * Support for bitfields in the BMP format was added.
    * A minor change was made to the behavior of the alphamax
      parameter; a value of 0 now gives a true polygon.
  - Build shared libpotrace.
* Sun Nov 27 2011
  - add libtool as buildrequire to avoid implicit dependency
* Sat Aug 20 2011
  - update to 1.10
    + added --tight option
    + backends: simplified dimension calculations
    + eps backend: prevent integer overflow in bounding box.
    + disallow resolution of 0 dpi.
    + man page: added BACKEND TYPES section
    + fixed default scaling at 72dpi for 	variable-sized backends
    + new gimppath backend produces SVG output
    + suitable for current versions of Gimp.
    + added a --flat option for the SVG backend.
    + test suite: renamed *.out files to prevent make's
    + built-in implicit rules from accidentally overwriting them.
    + added DXF backend. Thanks to Jonas Benedett Dorr for testing.
    + use high resolution bounding box in EPS, PDF, and SVG backends
    + autoconf: CADD can now be given at compile time
* Mon Mar 21 2011
  - licenses package is about to die
* Tue Jan 11 2011
  -Update to 1.9
    +the XFig and EPS backends were improved, and a fixed pagesize PDF backend was added;
    + support for BMP version 4 and version 5 files, as well as top-down BMP files, was added;
    + you'll see minor speed improvements to Potrace and major speed improvements to mkbitmap;
    + a Gaussian blur option was added to mkbitmap;
    + a change in the build sustem: libtool is now used to build and optionally install the Potrace library;
    + an optional simplified progress bar was added for dumb terminals;
    + this release also contains some portability improvements, cross-compilation improvements, and minor bug fixes.
  - run spec cleaner on the spec file and remove redundant changes from spec
  - drop xfig-patch as it is upstream now
