It's been a while.

https://github.com/POV-Ray/povray/releases/tag/v3.8.0-alpha.11272893


Not much new yet, just a few bugfixes and compatibility improvements:

- TGA transparency fixed (thanks Bill).

- Parser should no longer gang on `#undef` of a numeric variable.

- Unix build process should no longer gag on `#include <version>` 
somewhere in the boost libraries on certain systems (primarily seen on 
macOS).


Also some older fixes that hadn't made it into a development release yet:

- Windows console version should no longer fail to build with some 
complaints about `strdup` (though by now it might have other woes again).

- Fixed some Unix build issue related to the SDL library.


Anyone who would rather test-drive a version with overhauled `text` 
handling may want to wait a few moments, I'll release one of those later 
today.

configure and make.
