--------------------------------------------------------------
pdfTeX 3.141592-1.20c-beta-20050203 was released on 2005-02-03
--------------------------------------------------------------
- ttf2afm has been heavily changed:
    - added support for refering to glyphs via unicode in encoding files (ie 'uniXXX')
    - added some more info to the AFM output
    - some minor bug fixes
    - a short documentation available

- pdftex now understand forms 'uniXXXX' in encoding files (only makes sense
  with TrueType fonts)

- added subset tag for TrueType fonts

- PDF strings are now printed as following:
    (This is a string) -> (This is a string)
    This is a string -> (This is a string)
    <a1b245c1a2...> -> <a1b245c1a2...>

- check for double newline char to get rid of empty lines in PDF output

- Fixed a bug in the scanning of map lines introduced in the the fix of bug
  #242 in 1.20b.
  
- Fixed three problems in xpdf; xpdf is now 3.00pl3

- \ifeof18 is a simple method to test if \write18 is enabled.

- a few extensions in pdfxtex:
    - \pdflastximagecolordepth returns the last color depth
    - \pdfximage supports a keyword "colorspace" following an object number
      representing a ColorSpace object
    - \pdfstrcmp compares two strings
    - \pdfescapestring/\pdflastescapedstring provide a mean to escape string
    - \pdffirstlineheight/\pdflastlinedepth/\pdfeachlineheight/\pdfeachlinedepth
      allow fixing line dimen
    - patches from Taco
        - px dimen unit
        - tagcode patch
        - quitvmode patch

It's in p4; I'll upload a tarball to sarovar (http://sarovar.org/projects/pdftex/) soon.

Best regards
        Martin
