TC
4===========

0c647c9a
TC
6The main changes in the release versus 0.84 are:
7
8 - on 64-bit systems, 64-bit types are consistently used for image
9 dimensions and co-ordinated, and for memory block sizes.
10
11 - handle IFD loops in TIFF files correctly. Previously this would
12 lead to an infinite loop.
13

TC
14Bug fixes:

23
24Bug fixes:
25
26 - the image file limits set by set_file_limits() weren't being
27 checked when reading TIFF files.
28 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=69915
29
5970bd39
TC
30 - Provide more information about file format module load errors on a
31 failed image file read() or write().
32 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=69194
33
4ce3551c
TC
34 - use TIFFReadDirectory() instead of TIFFSetDirectory() to iterate
35 through TIFF images, since it checks for IFD loops.
36 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=69914
37
a16bca6d
TC
38 - don't leak memory when out of range palette indexes are supplied to
39 setscanline().
40 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=69242
41
42 - require a later version of CPAN::Meta to ensure JSON::PP and
43 CPAN::Meta::YAML are available.
44 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=69008
45
ac575c5f
TC
46 - hoist the per-line calculations for the flines implementations, and
47 modernize the tests a bit.
48 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=70126
49
86c8d19a
TC
50 - detect snprintf()/vsnprintf() (cheat by using Config.pm) and use
51 them when available.
52 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=69147
53
a3fd7df7
TC
54 - if t1lib failed to reinitialize it would be left as marked

61Imager 0.84_01 - 8 Aug 2011
62==============
63
64Development release as a sanity check for the types re-work.
8d14daab
TC
65
66Massive types re-work:
67
68 - the type used internally for pixel co-ordinates and image sizes is
69 now 64-bit on 64-bit platforms (at least sane ones).
70
71 - size_t is now used consistently for memory block sizes.
72
73 - since this changes the binary interface, the Imager API version has
74 been incremented. Any module that uses the API will need to be
75 rebuilt. In most cases that will be enough, but calls to any APIs
76 that take a pointer to image sizes may need source changes.
77
78 - you should be able to create very large images on 64-bit systems,
79 if you have enough memory. Successfully created a 32768 x 49192 x
80 3 channel image, filled with a tiled image and scaled it. The
81 unscaled image was also successfully saved to a JPEG.
82
83 - check the image size before attempting to write BMP, GIF, JPEG,
84 PNG, SGI, TGA, TIFF images.
85
86 - correctly handle reading TGA images over 32767 pixels wide or tall.
87
88Incidental changes:
89
90 - the gif_left and gif_top tags are now clamped to non-negative
91 values when writing a GIF image.
92
93 - removed dead callback read/write code
94
95The default maximum memory size when reading files is now 1G.
96

b1e66a82
TC
98===========
99
100 - Imager no longer inherits from Exporter (unless you're running an
101 old, old perl.
102
92e9df65
TC
103 - Imager can now write progressive JPEGs (it could always read them).
104 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=68691
105
10ea52a3
TC
106Bug fixes:
107

121
6d068d36
TC
122 - convert colors to grayscale if the supplied (or generated) palette
123 contains only grays when performing error diffusion color
124 translation.
125 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=68508
126
59c150a4
TC
127 - writing a paletted image to GIF wouldn't always use the colors
128 supplied (or generated, eg. via make_colors => "mono"), which was
129 confusing at best.
130 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=67912
131
5b480b14
TC
132 - replace (imager|tony)@imager.perl.org in the doc, since I don't
133 plan to continue receiving mail at that address.

148Dev release, in case the compose tests are too sensitive.
deb1a916
TC
149
150Bug fixes:
151
152 - Imager::Font::T1 incorrectly checked for absolute filename under
153 Win32. Thanks to kmx for the report and fix.
154 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=67963
155
618a3282
TC
156 - compose() with the target, source or mask position off the top or
157 left of the target image didn't clip the source image correctly.
158 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=67220
159
160 - compose() now returns a useful error message on a non-positive
161 opacity.
162
163 - compose.im now at 100% test coverage. (As opposed to, umm, much,
164 much less.)

c1d16c8f 166Imager 0.82 - 14 Mar 2011
2368cfec
TC
167===========
168
169Bug fixes:
170
171 - eliminate calls to i_has_format() from the test suite, since it's
172 no longer a useful way to check for file format support. Eliminate
173 i_has_format() from the functions exposed via XS.
174 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=65863
175
7540f84a
TC
176 - eliminate calls to note(), which isn't in the (very old) version of
177 Test::More we have as a pre-requisite. note() is modern enough
178 that I don't feel a need to require a Test::More upgrade for it.
179 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=65864
180
81984f30
TC
181 - skip the threads tests on Test::More 2.00_*

190 - increase the version of Imager::Font::Type1 so that upgrades don't
191 downgrade the version in this file.
192 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=66250
193
194 - if we see an -rpath (or -R) option in $Config{lddlflags} supply
195 that option for the directories that would normally go in
196 LD_RUN_PATH. Typically an explicit -rpath overrides LD_RUN_PATH.

272
2a2c791f
TC
273 - the convert() method now optimizes the case where all output
274 channels are either 0, sourced from a single input channel or 1.
275 This significantly speeds up presets like "addalpha", "green".
276 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=51254

173c91ba 362 - fix the cache check for the X rgb.txt loader. This is typically
cb4f51d6
TC
363 used for color translation on Unix-like systems, and the fix
364 improves performance of supplying colors by name by about 80 times.
365 Test code that managed 3400 10x10 pixel boxes/second sped up to
366 25700 boxes/second.

TC
419 - added the ability to read multiple-image PNM files.
420 Note that unlike the pbm/pgm/ppm specification this accepts mixed

422 Thanks to Philip Gwyn (Leolo) for this patch.
423
1d7e3124
TC
424 - moved the PNG file handling code into a sub-module in preparation

731This release primarily contains changes to improve ease of use -

735release.

740 - moved the imtoc.perl code into Imager::Preprocess

742 - paste() and rubthrough() now adapt the source image data to the

744 images to color images or back, or from alpha channel images to
745 noalpha channels or back.
746 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=30908
747
748 - rubthrough() now falls back to pasting when the source doesn't have
749 an alpha channel. This effectively treats the source as having a
750 max alpha channel, the right thing to do.
751 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=29944
752
753 - re-worked most of the area filling code to use a common set of
754 functions when filling.
755 Corrected normal combine mode.
756 Rewrote most of the combine modes to match the way the SVG draft
757 defines them with respect to a translucent source and destination.
758 Added tests for translucent source and destination.

760 similarly.

801 being set was treated as an opaque pixel, but one user reported a
802 problem with loading such an image. I haven't been able to find any
803 tools beyond the GIMP that handle alpha-channel 16-bit TGAs, so
804 I'll match it's behaviour. See issue 114913 in the GIMP's

962 - the mask for ICO/CUR images is now applied as an alpha channel to
963 the returned image. For the old behaviour, supply ico_masked => 0

1123Imager 0.55 - 16 Dec 2006
1124===========
1125
1126This is primarily a bug fix release.
1127
1128Note: Test::More is now a pre-requisite for Imager and is no longer bundled.
1129
1130There is one new feature:
1131
1132 - the Win32 font driver now supports UTF8 (RT 22166)
1133 http://www.cpanforum.com/threads/3276
1134 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=22166
1135
1136Several bugs were fixed:
1137
1138 - the string() method would not output the string "0"
1139 http://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=21770
1140
1141 - fills.c was failing to compile on Solaris 10 (compiler unknown)
1142 http://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=21944
1143
1144 - the gif_disposal and gif_user_input tags weren't being read from
1145 the file correctly
1146 http://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=22192
1147
1148 - gif.c was failing to build under MSVC
1149 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=23922
1150
1151 - in some cases strings passed to the string() method were treated as
1152 terminated by NUL (chr 0)
1153 http://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=21770
1154
1155 - on "MSWin32" perl builds we now link to -lzlib instead of -lz since
1156 that's the default build name for zlib on Win32.
1157 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=23064
1158
1159 - search $Config{incpath} for headers too, which we should have been
1160 doing all along.
1161
1162Win32 font driver fixes:
1163
1164 - the global descent value from bounding box was the wrong sign
1165 http://www.cpanforum.com/threads/3276
1166
1167 - if the first or last glyph overflowed the left or right side of the
1168 advance width they would be clipped
1169
1170
1171Imager 0.54 - 14 Sep 2006
1172===========
1173
1174This is primarily a feature release:
1175
1176 - a new qtype value 'mixing' has been added to the scale()
1177 method. This is faster than 'normal', slower than 'preview'. This
1178 is based on the method used by pnmscale, and seems to produce less
1179 blurry results than normal.
1180 http://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=20677
1181
1182 - the rubthrough() method can now render onto images with an alpha
1183 channel.
1184 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=20678
1185
1186 - the read_multi() method now falls back to calling doing a single
1187 image read via the read() method and write_multi() will now fall
1188 back to calling write() if a single image is supplied. This means
1189 you can simply call the read_multi() or write_multi() functions
1190 without having to check if the type is formatted by that method.
1191 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=19457
1192 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=19458
1193
1194 - the GIF loop extension can now be written. If you don't have
1195 libungif/giflib 4.1.4 (or some distribution's bugfixed equivalent) you
1196 should upgrade.
1197 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=21185
1198
1199 - getscanline() and setscanline() can now read/write palette index
1200 based data from/to the image for paletted images, by setting type to
1201 'index'.
1202 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=20338
1203
1204 - we no longer hassle you to disable GIF support
1205 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=20687
1206
1207 - minor documentation fixes
1208
1209
1210Imager 0.53 - 26 Jul 2006
1211===========
1212
1213This is a bugfix release.
1214
1215Some test code was left in a code path not covered by the test
1216suite. A test was added to cover this code path and the test code was
1217removed.
1218http://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=20705

1220
1221Imager 0.52 - 25 Jul 2006
1222===========
1223
1224This is primarily a feature release, but contains a fair few bug
1225fixes, new features:
1226
1227 - ability to read and write MS Windows ICO and CUR files
1228
1229 - you can now add file format plugins to support new file formats
1230
1231 - add POD coverage tests
1232
1233 - setcolors() and addcolors() now accept color names and so on
1234 instead of requiring Imager::Color objects.
1235 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=20056
1236
1237 - flood_fill() can now fill to a specified border color instead of
1238 just to the area the same color as the seed.
1239 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=19618
1240
1241
1242Bug fixes:
1243
1244 - bounding_box for the T1 driver wasn't converting UTF8 to ascii when
1245 calculating the advance width.
1246 http://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=20554
1247
1248 - bounding_box for the T1 driver wasn't including leading and
1249 trailing spaces in the bounding box as the other drivers did, it also
1250 produced strange results for empty strings or strings containing only
1251 spaces
1252
1253 - when reading CMYK jpeg images they were being transferred to the
1254 image object as is, producing a four channel image. It only looked ok
1255 due to an old still unfixed Photoshop bug. We now convert from the
1256 inverted CMYK that photoshop (and Corel for example) produce into RGB.
1257 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=20416
1258
1259 - reading a CYMK TIFF would result in a 4 channel image, reading any
1260 image with more than 4 channels (eg. RGB with 2 alpha channels) would
1261 result in an error.
1262 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=20415
1263
1264 - added /usr/local/include to the default include search path, since
1265 we were already searching /usr/local/lib for libraries.
1266
1267And various minor fixes and documentation updates.
1268
1269
1270Imager 0.51 - 23 Apr 2006

1291 output is an in-memeory buffer.
