The libpng packages offer the standard libraries for manipulating
PNG files, a turbo-studly lossless image format.  This is a security
update.

[[ compiled using gcc-4.5.3-3 ]]

NOTE TO MAINTAINERS:

This DLL, cygpng14-14.dll, is now officially obsolete.  Only security
updates will be provided, and new applications (or recompiled ones)
should use a more recent API version (at this time, libpng-1.5.x).

CHANGES (since 1.4.12-2)
========================

  package, they ought to be able to debug it as well.
