   fallback in case where the ttfont contains errors or is not found.  
   
 - The branch tag color and font can now be set separately using branch_tag_*

 - It is now possible to draw the connector lines between the boxes thicker  
   by setting thick_lines to something else than 1. Maximum thickness is  
   limited to lines of 11 pixels wide.
