ADG v.0.4.0 released

Automatic Drawing Generation is GObject-based library that provides a non-interactive Cairo canvas specifically designed for generating technical drawings.

The useless wrappers in AdgPath have been removed: now the standard cairo path API could be used in the path constructor callback.

AdgPoint has been added. This new core struct can be used to represent a coordinate system with different model and space component.

The new AdgToyText entity can be used to show arbitrary text using the cairo "toy" text API.

Two interfaces, AdgTranslatable and AdgRotable, have been implemented to allow arbitrary positioning (using the new AdgPoint struct) and rotation of entities where this is applicable (e.g. AdgToyText).

The CPML API has been almost rewrote from scratch: removed a lot of duplicated stuff, dropped CpmlPath (by using the original cairo_path_t) and implemented new functions, such as segment browsing (always in forward direction), reversing and transformation.

README, NEWS, TODO and ChangeLog are now automatically generated, so redundancy is removed and the maintainability improved. The originals are kept in docbook format, allowing to use them also in html version.

The adg-demo program now allows to save the sample drawing in png, pdf and poscript. Two useless toy text entities has been added.
