The last Pixman stable release happened in November of 2013 while out this weekend is finally a new Pixman release.

While it's been more than a half-year since the last stable Pixman release, the changes for the new v0.32.6 release aren't particularly compelling but still worth pointing out.

Pixman 0.32.6 fixes support for compiling the library using Intel's compiler (ICC), fixes for exported symbols on MIPS, and takes care of an integer overflow bug. This isn't one of the most exciting releases given in the past when there's been many performance optimizations and back-end improvements, etc happening.

More details about Pixman 0.32.6 can be found via the mailing list announcement along with download links.
