 good thing.  PNG is a more compact format, and full compression is
 available.  JPEG works best with photographic images, and is still
 more compatible with the major Web browsers than even PNG is. WBMP is

+<b>Windows DLL now uses __stdcall calling convention.</b> Existing
+applications will require a recompile, using the new version of gd.h,
+in order to use this version of the DLL. However, Visual BASIC and other
+non-C programmers will now be able to use the DLL, which is an enormous
+benefit and justifies the one-time inconvenience to existing DLL users. 
+The elaborate #ifdef test for older versions of Freetype without
+FT_ENCODING_MS_SYMBOL was needed in a second place also. Thanks to
+David R. Morrison.
+An off-by-one error in gdImageToPalette caused transparency to be applied
+to the wrong pixels. Thanks to "Super Pikeman."
