JBIG is a lossless, bilevel image compression format with better 
compression than TIFF-LZW (for bilevel images), and is 
patent-unencumbered. It is an 'official' standard image format -- ITU-T 
Recommendation T.82. (The JBIG group is a sister organization to the 
more familiar JPEG group; see http://www.jbig.org/)

This release is built against the cygwin-1.5.x kernel; it will not work 
with 1.3.22.


* updated to latest version
* recompiled against cygwin-1.5.2 kernel
* documentation moved to /usr/share/*
