This update fixes a very large number of issues, including some
important ones. You should update at the earliest opportunity.

This may well be the final release from the 0.15.x branch.

The OSX and MS Windows binaries are already available, the RPMs and
DEBs may take a few more hours to post.
The 0.14.32 release will follow shortly after that.

The RPM repositories also include some updated libraries:
libwebp-0.4.4, libvpx-1.5.0 and Pillow 3.0.0.
PyOpenGL and its accelerate module were rebuilt to try to prevent
conflicts with the newly packaged Fedora version.
