The libpng packages offer the standard libraries for manipulating
PNG files, a turbo-studly lossless image format.  This is a major
update to the libpng-1.4.x series.

[[ compiled using gcc-4.3.4-3 ]]

CHANGES (since 1.2.44-1)
o update to latest official release of libpng-1.4.x
o ABI change upstream so DLL is now provided by the new
  libpng14 package.
o Take this opportunity to switch to the autotool-driven
  build. This results in the rather odd DLL name cygpng14-14.dll.
o Install unversioned files.
