Version 6.11.6 of the LDM has been released. Continuing the trend of version 6.11.5, this version doesn't have the PNG or ZLIB packages bundled-in -- and for the same reasons: bundling is no longer necessary, security is enhanced by removing them, and the size of the LDM package is reduced. You must have the PNG and ZLIB development packages installed in order to build this version of the LDM. See this version's installation instructions for details.
If you're using version 6.11.5 of the LDM without any problems and don't care which PNG or ZLIB library the LDM uses, then you needn't upgrade.
This version of the LDM also has some other minor improvements. For details, please see the file CHANGE_LOG on this version's homepage or in the top-level source-directory of the distribution.
