Hi Users,

It seems that the stricter parsing for string formatting escapes I
introduced in 1.2.16 has interesting side effects. Until now, any
\X sequence where X was not one of the documented escapes was
treated as \l this lead some people to believe that \n was a valid
sequence. There was even contributed documentation in the RRDtool
distro suggesting as much.

I have therefor release 1.2.17 with the sole change that \n is now
a valid and documented alias to \l.
