Add image proof of concept tool

There are few new tools in win32 tool package, one of them can add png images to pdf files (works png with RGB, 8 bpp format). It is a proof of concept rather than a stable tool.

Annonymous bug reporting disabled in our bug tracker

After several spammer attempts we have decided to disable possibility to report bugs as unregistrated user.
If you want to report bug and don't want register in bug tracker, you can send email to the support mailing list (with [BUG] in the mail subject).
pdfedit-support also requires also registration, but I will allow such emails manually.

It is possible that we will change it back after some time when spammers get tired of this "fun"... read more

PDFedit 0.4.0 distribution tarball is broken

We are sorry, but mistake came in game during distribution tarball generation and src/kernel/Makefile was omitted so project is *not* compileable in result.
We assume that problem will be fixed after weekend.

Again, we are very sorry for that
