New features: sprite-sheet-to-x3d tool calculates the animations duration looking at the number of animation frames, influenced by the --fps= command-line option. New test_local_characters testcase. LoadAnimatedGifs to load GIFs. Better API around TextureProperties X3D node. Automatic gzip extension recognition for URLReadXML / URLWriteXML. Unix manpages for utilities.
Bufixes: OpenGLES (mobile) fixes for Color and ColorRGBA nodes handling. Removed the proprietary Chartboost and Heyzap jar files from the distribution (packaged by accident). Fix reading X3D files with IMPORT.
