recordMyDesktop 0.2.1

This release fixes a few bugs, adds a few options
and improves performance.
Bugs fixed are:

Unupdated lines when closing or moving a window.
Distorted cursor at the borders of the recording.
Incorrect display of windows that partially belonged
to the recording area.
Size adjustment, which resulted in direct addition of
pixels, is now handled more properly.Changes are smaller
and more symmetrically spread.

New options are:
Allow the encoder to drop frames, do more accurate subsampling
of the chroma planes and a couple of others. Check the manpage for more info.

Performance improvements are mainly a faster rgb to yuv transformation
and conditional use of shared memory,depending on the extend of the changes
that occur at every frame.

Also, if you are interested, I added a section at the site that I'm going
to upload a couple of videos, demonstrating cases where recordMyDesktop
can be of use. Right now there is a video of a kubuntu 6.06 installation
on my old pc.
If you have any trouble or questions in making your own videos, feel free to ask.
If you do so, please use the forums.

Enjoy and let me know how it worked(or didn't) for you.
