This release primarily fixes a lot of bugs but also adds a few minor

reads $HOME/.Xdefaults, a kuake-like extension has been added, Xft
and X11 colours now agree (this fixes colour banding effects),
hilightcolour-support has been re-enabled, the "depth" resource is
now respected, several Debian patches have been integrated, and
double-buffered Xft is now configurable via features.h. Many minor
bugs have been fixed.
