The RCs continue. This is hopefully be the last one, but who am I
to tell.

* Fixed Updates for 1.0.x files. This has been broken for over a
  year. It seems not all that many people have been testing the new
  release with old files. The problem was, that with the new MMAP
  code, the last_update time did not get written back to the rrd
  file which caused the rrd to get filled with NaNs at an
  incerassing speed with every update.

* INCOMPATIBILE CHANGE - Updated python bindings for 'info' to not
  be broken anymore by using the real rrd_info code. This does
  unfortunately break compatibility with the previous 'info'
  implementation for python, but since it segfaulted reliably I
  guess that not many people have been using it lately.

* Added 'updatev' and 'graphv' to the python bindings.

* fixed tab expansion for '\t' inline tabs.

* fixed pdf, svg and ps output format to actually get written to a
  file (another feature not many people seem to be using yet)
