libfvs 1.0.5 released.

libfvs 1.0.5 has been released. This release contains a new set of descriptors intended for use with L*A*B* images for pigment analysis. A new version of the 3-D thumbnail generator has been added which projects a 3-D model into one of several primitive 3-D shapes, before unwrapping to a 2-D plane. This release also has numerous other bug fixes and improvements.

Summary of changes;

• New Pigment based descriptors
• Support for Vips versions 7.12 and 7.13
• A new tool based on the 3d thumbnail generator which "unwraps" a 3-D model based on sphere, cone and cylinder projection has been added.
• Generated a python wrapper using swig.
• Added smart pointers manage image and feature vector objects internally.
• Fixed various multiscale wrapper bugs
• Numerous other bug fixes and code improvements.
