  * milestone:  future => 6.4


Comment:

 I've long thought this format was mostly unused.  But the gnome devs
 disagree (recent gtk+ requires you to use --without-libjasper if you don't
 have the shared version installed), and it crops up in other places -
 ghostscript-8.63, ImageMagick, kdelibs-4.1.x).  Surprisingly, when I
 looked at its use in ghostscript, google told me it was used in Amazon
 ebooks.


 With the recent vulnerabilities, I think we ought to have a patched and
 current version in the book (the vulnerabilities only mention the current
 version, but debian patch the older version they also ship).  Changing to
 6.4.
