Added notes for release 0.9.2.RELEASE_0_9_2
Increment CAIRO_VERSION to 0.9.2 and libtool versioning to 3:1:1. Remove some more 'snapshot' language. Make it more clear that the libtool versioning numbers need to be updated.

+Release 0.9.2 (2005-08-13 Carl Worth <cworth@cworth.org>)
+=========================================================
+Release numbering
+-----------------
+ * You will notice that this release jumped from 0.9.0 to 0.9.2. We've
+ decided to use an odd micro version number (eg. 0.9.1) to indicate
+ in-progress development between releases. As soon as 0.9.2 is
+ tagged, the version will be incremented in CVS to 0.9.3 where it
+ will stay until just before 0.9.4 is built, uploaded, and tagged.
+
+ So, even-micro == a released version, odd-micro == something in-between.
+
+Libpixman dependency dropped
+----------------------------
+ * As of this release, the dependency on an internal libpixman has
+ been dropped. Instead, the code from libpixman needed for cairo has
+ been incorporated into the cairo source tree. The motivation for
+ this change is that while cairo's API is stable and ready to be
+ maintained after the 1.0 release, libpixman's API is not, so we do
+ not want to expose it at this time.
+
+ Also, the incorporation of libpixman into cairo also renames all
+ previously-public libpixman symbols in order to avoid any conflict
+ with a future release of libpixman
+
+API additions
+-------------
+ * Macros and functions have been added so that the version of cairo
+ can be queried at either compile-time or at run-time. The version
+ is made available as both a human-readable string and as a single
+ integer:
+
+ CAIRO_VERSION_STRING eg. "0.9.2"
+ CAIRO_VERSION eg. 000902
+
+ const char*
+ cairo_version_string (void); /* eg. "0.9.2" */
+
+ int
+ cairo_version (void); /* eg. 000902 */
+
+ A macro is provided to convert a three-part component version into
+ the encoded single-integer form:
+
+ CAIRO_VERSION_ENCODE(X,Y,Z)
+
+ For example, the CAIRO_VERSION value of 000902 is obtained as
+ CAIRO_VERSION_ENCODE(0,9,2). The intent is to make version
+ comparisons easy, either at compile-time:
+
+ #if CAIRO_VERSION >= CAIRO_VERSION_ENCODE(0,9,2)
+ ...
+ #endif
+
+ Or at run-time:
+
+ if (cairo_version() >= CAIRO_VERSION_ENCODE(0,9,2)) { /* ... */ }
+
+Thread safety
+-------------
+ * This release adds pthread-based locking (when available) to make
+ the caches used by cairo safe for threaded programs. Some may
+ remember a failed experiment with this locking between the 0.5.1
+ and 0.5.2 snapshots, (where even single-threaded programs that
+ linked with -lpthread would deadlock). We believe that that problem
+ has been fixed, so we are looking forward to testing and reports
+ from users with threaded applications.
+
+Bug fixes
+---------
+ * The XCB and Quartz backends failed to compiled in the 0.9.0 release
+ due to minor syntax errors. These have now been fixed.
+
+ * Various crashes in glitz and pixman due to size 0 glyphs have been
+ fixed.
