A new pixman release 0.17.4 is now available. This is a development
snapshot leading up to a stable 0.18.0 release.


- Major performance improvements for ARM NEON [Siarhei Siamashka]

- Test suite improvements [Marvin Schmidt]

- Bug fixes [Benjamin Otte, Pierre-Loup A. Griffais, Søren Sandmann]

Testing by KDE users is especially appreciated because there is a
change in the behavior of alpha maps, which is a feature that is not
used much outside of Qt.
