Counting down to the 1.3.0 release on June 11th, here is another RC.

* took a step towards a more standardized librrd: all symbols are
  now prefixed with rrd_* and only the 'public' symbols are
  exported. (more will be in 1.4.x)

* fixed a bug that caused --font to not actually pickup any font
  names (it seems not many use this feature, since the bug has been
  around in 1.2 for some time as well)

* make pango markup configurable. Now only when you run graph with
  --pango-markup, your strings will be markup-processed. Otherwise
  all < and > characters will be printed as is. This was necessary
  to stop old software that uses these characters from breaking.

* fixed tcl bindings to build with newer version of tcl.

* fixed rrd_context memory corruption problem due to incorrect
  ordering of struct elements.

* added notes on building for gentoo.

Please test this release on your system. I am especially interested
in additions to the build instructions.


The official 1.3.0 release date is now targeted for June 11th, so that
there is time to get the website and a press release ready.
