libextractor v0.5.7 released

libextractor v0.5.7 has been released. This release eatures an updated German translation and improves support for the TAR and PDF formats. Mime-type detection for OLE2 streams was improved. The extract tool now returns an error code if files passed as arguments could not be accessed. A double-free problem under BSD was fixed.

For those who don't know, libextractor is a library used to extract meta-data from files of arbitrary type. It is designed to use helper-libraries to perform the actual extraction, and to be trivially extendable by linking against external extractors for additional file types.
