TC
3 - enable debug logging for the standard font tests
4
5 - skip the overloaded UTF-8 text output checks on 5.6.x and earlier,
6 due to a bug in that version of perl.
7
8 - don't test for read() failing on a write-only handle in 5.8.x and
9 earlier, this was fixed in change 862083f7e4 in perl.
10
11 - report the version of Inline found during testing (an attempt to
12 diagnose some intermittent failures.)

15==============
16
14a4ea18 17 - NOTE: possibly backward incompatible:
3dcf7595
TC
18 support reading from/writing to perl filehandes that aren't raw
19 files.
20
21 This allows Imager's I/O to honour handles with layers such as
22 gzip, scalar file handles or tied file handles.
23
14a4ea18 24 This is backward incompatible in that previous Imager would simply
3dcf7595
TC
25 use fileno() to retrieve the fd for the file and call write(2) etc
26 on it directly.

28
29 - moved most of README to lib/Imager/Install.pod which should make it
30 more accessible to the "web" generation, also significantly updated

95Imager 0.93 - 15 Oct 2012
96===========
97
98Bug fixes:
71fbe41a
TC
99
100 - previously a transparency enabled GIF write (the default) would
101 always use a GIF89a header even if none of the images were
102 transparent.
7a5f7bc6 103
b2f967ef
TC
104 - previously the probe step for freetype-config would fail on cygwin
105

TC
106 - catch an invalid matrix parameter to convert() instead of crashing
107 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=79922
108
109 - remove the 16-bit/sample limitation from the documentation for
110 setsamples(), it hasn't applied for many releases.
111 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=79989
112
9673d97e
TC
113 - don't copy setsamples() data parameter, it may be a large scalar

123Enhancements:
124
125 - support for giflib 5.0. (5.0.1 and later)
126 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=79029
127 The giflib API Imager uses doesn't have a mechanism to set the
128 header version in 5.0.0.
129
130 - update the GIF library probe code to check for the new giflib 5.0.1
131 EGifSetGifVersion() function, and to check for the giflib 4.2.0
132 uninitialized gif89 bug.
133 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=79679
134 http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&aid=3574283&group_id=102202&atid=631304
135
136 - avoid static variables when capturing IPTC data from JPEG files
137
138 - match Imager::Font;:T1's error message translations to those from
139 later versions of T1Lib.
140
141 - for libtiff versions that support extended warning handlers (3.8.0
142 or later), use them to avoid some global variables.
143
144 - note Image::ExifTool for better metadata support.

150 - giflib 4.2 eliminates the GIF_LIB_VERSION macro, handle that
151 correctly for both probing and runtime.

159===========
160
ef84bb32 161Bug fixes:
38742a13 162
289d65f4
TC
163 - The size of rotated images is no longer rounded up so aggressively.
164 Added rounding to the linear interpolation done for rotate() and
165 matrix_transform() for 1 and 3 channel 8-bit images.
166 Adjusted the two tranlate matrices used to build the final rotation
167 matrix to use the distance between the outlier pixels rather than
168 the pixel dimensions (ie. dimension-1).
169 With all of this the output of rotate(degrees => 270) on an 8-bit
170 image exactly matches the output of rotate(right => 270).
171 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=77063
172
ef84bb32
TC
173Other changes:
174
175 - eliminate the old IIM_new(), IIM_DESTROY() names from Imager's
176 internals, those names only matter for the XS interface.
177
178 - improve error reporting when PERL_INITIALIZE_IMAGER_CALLBACKS finds
179 the API level compiled into a loadable module such as
180 Imager::File::GIF doesn't match that of Imager. Previously it
181 could be difficult to determine exactly which module was failing to
182 load.
183 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=77173
184
185 - added Imager->check_file_limits() as an interface to the
186 i_int_check_image_file_limits() API.
187
188 - Imager->set_file_limits(reset => 1) now resets the limits to the
189 defaults rather than setting them all to unlimited.
190
191 - wrote a brief security note as Imager::Security
192 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=68910

6f31dd14 194Imager 0.90 - 30 Apr 2012
7c4464f5
TC
195===========
196
197Bug fixes:
198
199 - Imager::Test::is_imaged() attempted to process an "epsilon"
200 parameter but the prototype didn't allow for the extra parameter.
201 Corrected the prototype.
202
29b38678
TC
203 - when downconverting samples (eg. from floating point to 8 bit)
204 Imager now rounds the sample value rather than attempting to
205 allocate input values over output values equally. The old
206 behaviour had the probably surprising effect of converting a
207 floating point 2.1/255.0 into an 8-bit 3 rather than the expected
208 2.
209 This may result in slightly different 8 or 16-bit output images.
210
e2a86bac
TC
211 - BI_BITFIELD BMP images were handled incorrectly, both in
212 incorrectly calculating the space required for the masks and in
213 processing the image data itself.
214 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=76736
215
216 - some odd width BMP BI_RLE4 images use run lengths that run one off
217 the edge of the image. Imager now allows this, discarding the
218 extra column.
219
220 - odd length RLE4 runs in BMP images were decoded incorrectly.
221
82eb0687
TC
222 - pkg-config could sometimes return a library that was in a directory
223 EU::MM / $Config{libpth} doesn't know about, but the compiler did.
224 If no -L is included in the pkg-config library information check if
225 EU::MM can find the library, and if not, search our configured
226 directories and insert that into the library flags.
227 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=75869
228
de50f459
TC
229 - Imager::Probe can now probe for libraries with dependent libraries,
230 common for static linking, eg. libpng requires libz.
231 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=74043
232
233 - libpng 1.5 specific probes were looking for libpng 1.4 filenames.
234
235 - added alternative probe configurations that try to link libz, to
236 handle a statically linked libpng.
237 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=74043
238
239 - if a probe includes testcode, Imager::Probe now checks that code as
240 part of the process of checking each configuration rather than as a
241 post test of the found configuration. This allows alternate
242 configurations to be checked if a matching but non-working
243 configuration is found.
244 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=74043
245
9d5ff8a6
TC
246Other changes:
247
248 - when reading or writing images via callbacks, the default callbacks
249 now push an error message indicating that a required callback was
250 called but not supplied.
251 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=76782
252
253 - clarify which callbacks are required for reading and writing TIFF
254 images.
255
256 - improve logging for creation of callback I/O layers.
257
de50f459
TC
258 - a little more documentation for Imager::Probe.
259
594f5933
TC
260 - the i_get_file_background() and i_get_file_backgroundf() APIs now
261 return int to indicate whether the i_background tag was found.
262
1b46057d
TC
263 - PNG rework
264 - improve error reporting
265 - add png_interlace, png_bits tags
266 - read paletted images as paletted images, including transparency
267 - read 1 bit greyscale images as a type suitable for other file
268 handlers to write as bilevel
269 - read 16 bit/sample PNG as 16-bit/sample Imager images
270 - write "bilevel" paletted images as 1 bit grayscale images
271 - write paletted images as paletted images
272 - write 16-bit (or higher)/sample images as 16-bit/sample PNG
273 images
274 - improved metadata support

93eab01e
TC
282 - getpixel(..., type => "float") and the API i_gpixf() have been
283 broken on paletted images since they were implemented.

TC
286Other changes:

61be9694
TC
288 - links in the METHOD INDEX now point at the method documentation
289 rather than the heading you can find them under.
290 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=71495
291
a5919365
TC
292 - Imager (and the bundled dynamic modules) no longer fallback to
293 using DynaLoader if loading via XSLoader fails.
294 For the bundled modules this could hide useful error messages.
295 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=75560
296
335078fc
TC
297 - IM_DEBUG_MALLOC mymalloc() no longer sn?printfs() a string to a
298 buffer in the array of allocations, but just stores the filename
299 pointer and line number.

303===========
304
43bef43b
TC
305 - describe how to build libgif etc on OS X in such a way as to be
306 compatible with a fat binary perl (such as the system perl), in
307 README.

315
3b7f10da
TC
316 - note that the generator of the apparently non-DFSG-free postscript
317 in MMOne.pfb is a Debian package.
318
02323e69
TC
319 - setsamples() is now a true complement to getsamples() - it can
320 write 8-bit or floating point samples from a scalar or array
321 reference. This adds i_psamp() and i_psampf() to the C level API.
322
323 - the XS interfaces to i_gsamp(), i_gsampf() and i_gsamp_bits() have
324 changed to make better use of the typemap, but these aren't part of
325 the perl level API anyway. There were no changes to the C level
326 interfaces to these functions.
327
2a27eeff
TC
328 - getpixel() and setpixel() now accept a mix of scalar and array
329 references for the x and y parameters, and unequal array lengths is
330 no longer an error.

342 - Win32 text output is now done in normal combine mode, the alpha
343 component of the color is now significant.

TC
353 - getpixel() and setpixel() now returns an empty list when invalid

478
479 - add simple tests for the Imager::Test test_image generators
480

TC
481 - io_glue I/O buffering re-work:
482
483 - reorganize io_glue to do it's own buffering by default
484
485 - the unbuffered functions are available as i_io_raw_read() (or
486 raw_read() from perl) etc but are not recommended for typical
487 use.
488
489 - use the new i_io_peekn() when checking for file magic to avoid
490 seek, allowing Imager to detect the file type and read the file
491 from an unseekable stream (for formats that don't use random
492 access)
493
494 - added several new I/O layer API functions.
495
496 - fix the TGA performance problem, most noticably on Win32
497 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=70037
498
499 - TIFF now uses wrapper functions of the correct types to avoid casts
500 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=69912
501
502 - the callback IO object did its own buffering, controlled by the
503 maxbuffer parameter supplied to the read() and write() methods.
504 This buffering has been removed, to avoid redundancy with the
505 common io_glue buffering. This also avoids a bug in that code
506 which could rarely pass a zero length to the read callback and
507 then panic about the result.
508
509 - the callback IO object now tests the result of calling the close
510 callback, which should return true for success.
511
512 - the PNM reader did its own buffering. This buffering has been
513 removed to avoid redundancy with the common io_glue buffering.
514
515 - previously the read handlers for fd and callback I/O layers would
516 call the underlying interface (POSIX read or your supplied callback)
517 until it filled the buffer. It now only makes one call.
518
519 - added public constructors for I/O layer objects (see Imager::IO)
520
521 - all core file handlers now use the i_io_foo() wrappers to gain
522 access to buffered I/O rather than calling the I/O layer
523 callbacks directly.
524
525 - all core file handlers now check for error on close.
526
527 - Backward compatibility: if you hava custom file handlers, you can
528 use i_io_write() etc since they're available as macros in older
529 versions of Imager.
530
531 - eliminate the final remnants of io_glue_commit_types().
532
533 - bump IMAGER_API_VERSION, since the above may break assumptions.
534
535 - removed the long unused i_gen_reader() and i_gen_writer() utility
536 functions.

544 dimensions and co-ordinated, and for memory block sizes.
545

547 lead to an infinite loop.

597==============
598
599Development release as a sanity check for the types re-work.
8d14daab
TC
600
601Massive types re-work:
602
603 - the type used internally for pixel co-ordinates and image sizes is
604 now 64-bit on 64-bit platforms (at least sane ones).
605
606 - size_t is now used consistently for memory block sizes.
607
608 - since this changes the binary interface, the Imager API version has
609 been incremented. Any module that uses the API will need to be
610 rebuilt. In most cases that will be enough, but calls to any APIs
611 that take a pointer to image sizes may need source changes.
612
613 - you should be able to create very large images on 64-bit systems,
614 if you have enough memory. Successfully created a 32768 x 49192 x
615 3 channel image, filled with a tiled image and scaled it. The
616 unscaled image was also successfully saved to a JPEG.
617
618 - check the image size before attempting to write BMP, GIF, JPEG,
619 PNG, SGI, TGA, TIFF images.
620
621 - correctly handle reading TGA images over 32767 pixels wide or tall.
622
623Incidental changes:
624
625 - the gif_left and gif_top tags are now clamped to non-negative
626 values when writing a GIF image.
627
628 - removed dead callback read/write code
629
630The default maximum memory size when reading files is now 1G.

1352 - the old dynaload code used Mach API functions to load dynamic
1353 libraries on Mac OS X. These APIs have been deprecated in OS X
1354 10.5 and were causing some build problems.
1355 So henceforth Imager uses the dlopen() family of functions, and you
1356 will need version 10.3 or later of OS X.

1663This is primarily a bug fix release.
1664
1665Note: Test::More is now a pre-requisite for Imager and is no longer bundled.
1666
1667There is one new feature:

1671 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=22166

1674
1675 - the string() method would not output the string "0"
1676 http://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=21770
1677
1678 - fills.c was failing to compile on Solaris 10 (compiler unknown)
1679 http://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=21944
1680
1681 - the gif_disposal and gif_user_input tags weren't being read from
1682 the file correctly
1683 http://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=22192
1684
1685 - gif.c was failing to build under MSVC
1686 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=23922
1687
1688 - in some cases strings passed to the string() method were treated as
1689 terminated by NUL (chr 0)
1690 http://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=21770
1691
1692 - on "MSWin32" perl builds we now link to -lzlib instead of -lz since
1693 that's the default build name for zlib on Win32.
1694 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=23064
1695
1696 - search $Config{incpath} for headers too, which we should have been
1697 doing all along.
1698
1699Win32 font driver fixes:
1700
1701 - the global descent value from bounding box was the wrong sign
1702 http://www.cpanforum.com/threads/3276

1707
1708Imager 0.54 - 14 Sep 2006
1709===========
1710
1711This is primarily a feature release:
1712
1713 - a new qtype value 'mixing' has been added to the scale()
1714 method. This is faster than 'normal', slower than 'preview'. This
1715 is based on the method used by pnmscale, and seems to produce less
1716 blurry results than normal.
1717 http://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=20677
1718
1719 - the rubthrough() method can now render onto images with an alpha
1720 channel.
1721 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=20678
1722
1723 - the read_multi() method now falls back to calling doing a single
1724 image read via the read() method and write_multi() will now fall
1725 back to calling write() if a single image is supplied. This means
1726 you can simply call the read_multi() or write_multi() functions
1727 without having to check if the type is formatted by that method.
1728 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=19457
1729 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=19458
1730
1731 - the GIF loop extension can now be written. If you don't have
1732 libungif/giflib 4.1.4 (or some distribution's bugfixed equivalent) you
1733 should upgrade.
1734 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=21185
1735
1736 - getscanline() and setscanline() can now read/write palette index
1737 based data from/to the image for paletted images, by setting type to
1738 'index'.
1739 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=20338
1740
1741 - we no longer hassle you to disable GIF support
1742 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=20687
1743
1744 - minor documentation fixes
1745
1746
1747Imager 0.53 - 26 Jul 2006
1748===========
1749
1750This is a bugfix release.
1751
1752Some test code was left in a code path not covered by the test
1753suite. A test was added to cover this code path and the test code was
1754removed.

1762fixes, new features:
1763
1764 - ability to read and write MS Windows ICO and CUR files
1765
1766 - you can now add file format plugins to support new file formats
1767
1768 - add POD coverage tests
1769
1770 - setcolors() and addcolors() now accept color names and so on
1771 instead of requiring Imager::Color objects.
1772 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=20056
1773

1779Bug fixes:
1780
1781 - bounding_box for the T1 driver wasn't converting UTF8 to ascii when
1782 calculating the advance width.
1783 http://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=20554
1784
1785 - bounding_box for the T1 driver wasn't including leading and
1786 trailing spaces in the bounding box as the other drivers did, it also
1787 produced strange results for empty strings or strings containing only
1788 spaces
1789
1790 - when reading CMYK jpeg images they were being transferred to the
1791 image object as is, producing a four channel image. It only looked ok
1792 due to an old still unfixed Photoshop bug. We now convert from the
1793 inverted CMYK that photoshop (and Corel for example) produce into RGB.
1794 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=20416
1795
1796 - reading a CYMK TIFF would result in a 4 channel image, reading any
1797 image with more than 4 channels (eg. RGB with 2 alpha channels) would
1798 result in an error.
1799 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=20415
1800
1801 - added /usr/local/include to the default include search path, since
1802 we were already searching /usr/local/lib for libraries.
1803
1804And various minor fixes and documentation updates.
