KSquirrel-0.5.0-preview3 released

ksquirrel-0.5.0-preview3 for KDE 3.2 and JPEG library for preview3
Please be patient - preview3 contains only one library. Anyway, it's just a preview.
>> critical or important:
* fixed wrong displaying of huge images (more than 2048x2048); now doesn't depend on GL_MAX_TEXTURE_SIZE =)
* fixed crashing on thumbnail view
* fixed awful memory leak, shame on myself !! =)
* moved to JPEG thumbnails (remove old ones from ~/.ksquirrel/thumbnails !)
* detecting images by content (like Trolltech's QImage)
* removed "Look like ..." - unusable stuff
* please check README for new keyboard shortcuts.
>> other:
* now "make -f Makefile.dist" to recreate configure and other scripts
* configure was generated with autoconf 2.59, Makefiles - with automake 1.8.5
* fixed wrong url selection in treeview
* fixed wrong gridX value selection in SQ_FileThumbView
* fixed wrong filter selection on startup
* added library's filters support
* added pending thumbnails (sand-glass)
* added extended thumbnails
* added configurable zoom limit
* added tooltips with thumbnail info
* double click in Navigator opens current url in default browser
* image displaying is now faster
* determining archives by MIME, not by extension (._zip wasn't been handled :-( )
* some changes in 'Options' dialog
* removed GL_LINEAR filter due to new displaying mechanizm
* other small fixes.
TODO: need help with libraries.
