* JPEG2000 support is no longer enabled by default. It must be
explicitly turned on, by passing --with-libjasper to configure.
* GDK has been reworked to implement 'client-side windows'. This offers
exciting new possibilities, such as transformed, offscreen rendering,
but it breaks some long-standing assumptions that applications may
have about GDK windows. Setting the environment variable
GDK_NATIVE_WINDOWS makes GDK create a native X11 window for each
GDK window, which might make problematic applications work better.
