Upstream changes:

    - [RT #122371] Remove a couple of improperly-placed weaken statements
      (reported by Phil Perry).

    - [RT #122372] Fix weakening when a page is added to the end of a multiple
      page document (reported by Phil Perry).

    - Fix Bank Gothic core font (reported by Phil Perry).

2.032     2017-07-02

    - PDF::API2 has many circular references, and the end() method doesn't clear
      them all, so memory is leaked.  This release uses Scalar::Util's weaken()
      function to improve garbage collection.  A significant number of circular
      references have been weakened, though many likely still remain.

    - [RT #120756] Eliminate a warning for an ambiguous call to CORE::open
      (first reported by Abdelbaki Brahmia).

    - $text->text_justified() and $text->text_fill_justified() now adjust the
      space between words rather than stretching individual characters in order
      to get the text to fit.

    - [RT #120397] Indirect references and indirect objects can have comments
      embedded in their whitespace, and their object number and generation may
      be split across multiple lines, which may not all be buffered (reported by

    - [RT #120450] Fix PDF::API2->open($filename)->stringify() (reported by

    - Fix an off-by-one error when calculating text width while charspace is

    - [RT #120048] Fix PDF::API2->synfont() (broken in 2.029, fixed by Vadim
      Repin) and add basic testing.

Update to 2.031

Upstream changes:
2.031     2017-01-26

    - Fix use of cache files when reading streams: temp files will now
      be used any time a stream is larger than 16MB (by default).
      Formerly, due to a bug, they would only be created when a 4kB
      chunk of a stream increased to 16kB or more after being

    - Numbers, booleans, and null values can now be read from object

    - Update to [RT #113290]: Objects inside a large object stream are
      now read without loading the entire object stream into memory.

    - DEPRECATION: The low-level new_api methods have been deprecated
      in favor of calling new directly.  If your code uses
      new_api($api2, ...), replace it with new($api2->{'pdf'}, ...).

    - [RT #118352] Don't crash when adding an annotation to a page
      that has an existing annotations array stored as an indirect
      object (reported by Johan Vromans).

    - [RT #118717] Die with an informative error if a file can't be
      opened during open() or saveas() (reported by Johan Vromans).
