3 - handle the SVf_UTF8 flag correctly on magic strings passed to
4 Imager::IO's write() and raw_write() methods.
5 This may misbehave in perl 5.6.x since the UTF8 flag may not be
6 visible in the main SV after SvGETMAGIC().

TC
16 - enable debug logging for the standard font tests
17
18 - skip the overloaded UTF-8 text output checks on 5.6.x and earlier,
19 due to a bug in that version of perl.
20
21 - don't test for read() failing on a write-only handle in 5.8.x and
22 earlier, this was fixed in change 862083f7e4 in perl.
23
24 - report the version of Inline found during testing (an attempt to
25 diagnose some intermittent failures.)

28==============
29
14a4ea18 30 - NOTE: possibly backward incompatible:
3dcf7595
TC
31 support reading from/writing to perl filehandes that aren't raw
32 files.
33
34 This allows Imager's I/O to honour handles with layers such as
35 gzip, scalar file handles or tied file handles.
36
14a4ea18 37 This is backward incompatible in that previous Imager would simply
3dcf7595
TC
38 use fileno() to retrieve the fd for the file and call write(2) etc
39 on it directly.

113Bug fixes:
71fbe41a
TC
114
115 - previously a transparency enabled GIF write (the default) would
116 always use a GIF89a header even if none of the images were
117 transparent.

138Enhancements:
139
140 - support for giflib 5.0. (5.0.1 and later)
141 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=79029
142 The giflib API Imager uses doesn't have a mechanism to set the
143 header version in 5.0.0.
144
145 - update the GIF library probe code to check for the new giflib 5.0.1
146 EGifSetGifVersion() function, and to check for the giflib 4.2.0
147 uninitialized gif89 bug.
148 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=79679
149 http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&aid=3574283&group_id=102202&atid=631304
150
151 - avoid static variables when capturing IPTC data from JPEG files
152
153 - match Imager::Font;:T1's error message translations to those from
154 later versions of T1Lib.
155
156 - for libtiff versions that support extended warning handlers (3.8.0
157 or later), use them to avoid some global variables.
158
159 - note Image::ExifTool for better metadata support.

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

ef84bb32 176Bug fixes:
38742a13 177
289d65f4
TC
178 - The size of rotated images is no longer rounded up so aggressively.
179 Added rounding to the linear interpolation done for rotate() and
180 matrix_transform() for 1 and 3 channel 8-bit images.
181 Adjusted the two tranlate matrices used to build the final rotation
182 matrix to use the distance between the outlier pixels rather than
183 the pixel dimensions (ie. dimension-1).
184 With all of this the output of rotate(degrees => 270) on an 8-bit
185 image exactly matches the output of rotate(right => 270).
186 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=77063
187
ef84bb32
TC
188Other changes:
189
190 - eliminate the old IIM_new(), IIM_DESTROY() names from Imager's
191 internals, those names only matter for the XS interface.
192
193 - improve error reporting when PERL_INITIALIZE_IMAGER_CALLBACKS finds
194 the API level compiled into a loadable module such as
195 Imager::File::GIF doesn't match that of Imager. Previously it
196 could be difficult to determine exactly which module was failing to
197 load.
198 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=77173
199
200 - added Imager->check_file_limits() as an interface to the
201 i_int_check_image_file_limits() API.
202
203 - Imager->set_file_limits(reset => 1) now resets the limits to the
204 defaults rather than setting them all to unlimited.
205
206 - wrote a brief security note as Imager::Security
207 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=68910

6f31dd14 209Imager 0.90 - 30 Apr 2012
7c4464f5
TC
210===========
211
212Bug fixes:
213
214 - Imager::Test::is_imaged() attempted to process an "epsilon"
215 parameter but the prototype didn't allow for the extra parameter.
216 Corrected the prototype.
217
29b38678
TC
218 - when downconverting samples (eg. from floating point to 8 bit)
219 Imager now rounds the sample value rather than attempting to
220 allocate input values over output values equally. The old
221 behaviour had the probably surprising effect of converting a
222 floating point 2.1/255.0 into an 8-bit 3 rather than the expected
223 2.
224 This may result in slightly different 8 or 16-bit output images.
225
e2a86bac
TC
226 - BI_BITFIELD BMP images were handled incorrectly, both in
227 incorrectly calculating the space required for the masks and in
228 processing the image data itself.
229 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=76736
230
231 - some odd width BMP BI_RLE4 images use run lengths that run one off
232 the edge of the image. Imager now allows this, discarding the
233 extra column.
234
235 - odd length RLE4 runs in BMP images were decoded incorrectly.
236
82eb0687
TC
237 - pkg-config could sometimes return a library that was in a directory
238 EU::MM / $Config{libpth} doesn't know about, but the compiler did.
239 If no -L is included in the pkg-config library information check if
240 EU::MM can find the library, and if not, search our configured
241 directories and insert that into the library flags.
242 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=75869
243
de50f459
TC
244 - Imager::Probe can now probe for libraries with dependent libraries,
245 common for static linking, eg. libpng requires libz.
246 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=74043
247
248 - libpng 1.5 specific probes were looking for libpng 1.4 filenames.
249
250 - added alternative probe configurations that try to link libz, to
251 handle a statically linked libpng.
252 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=74043
253
254 - if a probe includes testcode, Imager::Probe now checks that code as
255 part of the process of checking each configuration rather than as a
256 post test of the found configuration. This allows alternate
257 configurations to be checked if a matching but non-working
258 configuration is found.
259 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=74043
260
9d5ff8a6
TC
261Other changes:
262
263 - when reading or writing images via callbacks, the default callbacks
264 now push an error message indicating that a required callback was
265 called but not supplied.
266 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=76782
267
268 - clarify which callbacks are required for reading and writing TIFF
269 images.
270
271 - improve logging for creation of callback I/O layers.
272
de50f459
TC
273 - a little more documentation for Imager::Probe.
274
594f5933
TC
275 - the i_get_file_background() and i_get_file_backgroundf() APIs now
276 return int to indicate whether the i_background tag was found.
277

TC
278 - PNG rework
279 - improve error reporting
280 - add png_interlace, png_bits tags
281 - read paletted images as paletted images, including transparency
282 - read 1 bit greyscale images as a type suitable for other file
283 handlers to write as bilevel
284 - read 16 bit/sample PNG as 16-bit/sample Imager images
285 - write "bilevel" paletted images as 1 bit grayscale images
286 - write paletted images as paletted images
287 - write 16-bit (or higher)/sample images as 16-bit/sample PNG
288 images
289 - improved metadata support

a5919365
TC
307 - Imager (and the bundled dynamic modules) no longer fallback to
308 using DynaLoader if loading via XSLoader fails.
309 For the bundled modules this could hide useful error messages.
310 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=75560
311
335078fc
TC
312 - IM_DEBUG_MALLOC mymalloc() no longer sn?printfs() a string to a

314 pointer and line number.

331 - note that the generator of the apparently non-DFSG-free postscript
332 in MMOne.pfb is a Debian package.
333
02323e69
TC
334 - setsamples() is now a true complement to getsamples() - it can
335 write 8-bit or floating point samples from a scalar or array
336 reference. This adds i_psamp() and i_psampf() to the C level API.
337
338 - the XS interfaces to i_gsamp(), i_gsampf() and i_gsamp_bits() have
339 changed to make better use of the typemap, but these aren't part of
340 the perl level API anyway. There were no changes to the C level
341 interfaces to these functions.
342
2a27eeff
TC
343 - getpixel() and setpixel() now accept a mix of scalar and array
344 references for the x and y parameters, and unequal array lengths is
345 no longer an error.

TC
496 - io_glue I/O buffering re-work:
497
498 - reorganize io_glue to do it's own buffering by default
499
500 - the unbuffered functions are available as i_io_raw_read() (or
501 raw_read() from perl) etc but are not recommended for typical
502 use.
503
504 - use the new i_io_peekn() when checking for file magic to avoid
505 seek, allowing Imager to detect the file type and read the file
506 from an unseekable stream (for formats that don't use random
507 access)
508
509 - added several new I/O layer API functions.
510
511 - fix the TGA performance problem, most noticably on Win32
512 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=70037
513
514 - TIFF now uses wrapper functions of the correct types to avoid casts
515 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=69912
516
517 - the callback IO object did its own buffering, controlled by the
518 maxbuffer parameter supplied to the read() and write() methods.
519 This buffering has been removed, to avoid redundancy with the
520 common io_glue buffering. This also avoids a bug in that code
521 which could rarely pass a zero length to the read callback and
522 then panic about the result.
523
524 - the callback IO object now tests the result of calling the close
525 callback, which should return true for success.
526
527 - the PNM reader did its own buffering. This buffering has been
528 removed to avoid redundancy with the common io_glue buffering.
529
530 - previously the read handlers for fd and callback I/O layers would
531 call the underlying interface (POSIX read or your supplied callback)
532 until it filled the buffer. It now only makes one call.
533
534 - added public constructors for I/O layer objects (see Imager::IO)
535
536 - all core file handlers now use the i_io_foo() wrappers to gain
537 access to buffered I/O rather than calling the I/O layer
538 callbacks directly.
539
540 - all core file handlers now check for error on close.
541
542 - Backward compatibility: if you hava custom file handlers, you can
543 use i_io_write() etc since they're available as macros in older
544 versions of Imager.
545
546 - eliminate the final remnants of io_glue_commit_types().
547
548 - bump IMAGER_API_VERSION, since the above may break assumptions.
549
550 - removed the long unused i_gen_reader() and i_gen_writer() utility
551 functions.

612==============
613
614Development release as a sanity check for the types re-work.
8d14daab
TC
615
616Massive types re-work:
617
618 - the type used internally for pixel co-ordinates and image sizes is
619 now 64-bit on 64-bit platforms (at least sane ones).
620
621 - size_t is now used consistently for memory block sizes.
622
623 - since this changes the binary interface, the Imager API version has
624 been incremented. Any module that uses the API will need to be
625 rebuilt. In most cases that will be enough, but calls to any APIs
626 that take a pointer to image sizes may need source changes.
627
628 - you should be able to create very large images on 64-bit systems,
629 if you have enough memory. Successfully created a 32768 x 49192 x
630 3 channel image, filled with a tiled image and scaled it. The
631 unscaled image was also successfully saved to a JPEG.
632
633 - check the image size before attempting to write BMP, GIF, JPEG,
634 PNG, SGI, TGA, TIFF images.
635
636 - correctly handle reading TGA images over 32767 pixels wide or tall.
637
638Incidental changes:
639
640 - the gif_left and gif_top tags are now clamped to non-negative
641 values when writing a GIF image.
642
643 - removed dead callback read/write code
644
645The default maximum memory size when reading files is now 1G.

1300 - rubthrough() now falls back to pasting when the source doesn't have
1301 an alpha channel. This effectively treats the source as having a
1302 max alpha channel, the right thing to do.

1341 - removed the pointless #! line from lib/Imager/Font/Wrap.pm
1342 Noticed when I saw:

1344 I'm not changing the #! lines of the sample code, since it's sample

1348 - some TGA images weren't being detected correctly as TGA images
1349 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=32925
1350
1351 - handling of the left-over bit for 16-bit/pixel TGA images has been
1352 changed to match the behaviour of the GIMP. Previously the bit
1353 being set was treated as an opaque pixel, but one user reported a
1354 problem with loading such an image. I haven't been able to find any
1355 tools beyond the GIMP that handle alpha-channel 16-bit TGAs, so
1356 I'll match it's behaviour. See issue 114913 in the GIMP's
1357 bugzilla.

1367 - the old dynaload code used Mach API functions to load dynamic
1368 libraries on Mac OS X. These APIs have been deprecated in OS X
1369 10.5 and were causing some build problems.
1370 So henceforth Imager uses the dlopen() family of functions, and you
1371 will need version 10.3 or later of OS X.

1679
1680Note: Test::More is now a pre-requisite for Imager and is no longer bundled.
1681
1682There is one new feature:
1683

1686 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=22166
1687
1688Several bugs were fixed:
1689
1690 - the string() method would not output the string "0"
1691 http://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=21770
1692
1693 - fills.c was failing to compile on Solaris 10 (compiler unknown)
1694 http://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=21944
1695
1696 - the gif_disposal and gif_user_input tags weren't being read from
1697 the file correctly
1698 http://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=22192
1699
1700 - gif.c was failing to build under MSVC
1701 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=23922
1702
1703 - in some cases strings passed to the string() method were treated as
1704 terminated by NUL (chr 0)
1705 http://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=21770
1706
1707 - on "MSWin32" perl builds we now link to -lzlib instead of -lz since
1708 that's the default build name for zlib on Win32.
1709 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=23064
1710
1711 - search $Config{incpath} for headers too, which we should have been
1712 doing all along.
1713
1714Win32 font driver fixes:
1715
1716 - the global descent value from bounding box was the wrong sign
1717 http://www.cpanforum.com/threads/3276
1718
1719 - if the first or last glyph overflowed the left or right side of the
1720 advance width they would be clipped

1722
1723Imager 0.54 - 14 Sep 2006
1724===========
1725
1726This is primarily a feature release:
1727
1728 - a new qtype value 'mixing' has been added to the scale()
1729 method. This is faster than 'normal', slower than 'preview'. This
1730 is based on the method used by pnmscale, and seems to produce less
1731 blurry results than normal.
1732 http://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=20677
1733
1734 - the rubthrough() method can now render onto images with an alpha
1735 channel.
1736 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=20678
1737
1738 - the read_multi() method now falls back to calling doing a single
1739 image read via the read() method and write_multi() will now fall
1740 back to calling write() if a single image is supplied. This means
1741 you can simply call the read_multi() or write_multi() functions
1742 without having to check if the type is formatted by that method.
1743 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=19457
1744 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=19458
1745
1746 - the GIF loop extension can now be written. If you don't have
1747 libungif/giflib 4.1.4 (or some distribution's bugfixed equivalent) you
1748 should upgrade.
1749 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=21185
1750
1751 - getscanline() and setscanline() can now read/write palette index
1752 based data from/to the image for paletted images, by setting type to
1753 'index'.
1754 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=20338
1755
1756 - we no longer hassle you to disable GIF support
1757 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=20687
1758
1759 - minor documentation fixes
1760

1773Imager 0.52 - 25 Jul 2006
1774===========
1775
1776This is primarily a feature release, but contains a fair few bug
1777fixes, new features:
1778
1779 - ability to read and write MS Windows ICO and CUR files
1780
1781 - you can now add file format plugins to support new file formats
1782
1783 - add POD coverage tests
1784
1785 - setcolors() and addcolors() now accept color names and so on
1786 instead of requiring Imager::Color objects.
1787 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=20056
1788
1789 - flood_fill() can now fill to a specified border color instead of
1790 just to the area the same color as the seed.
1791 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=19618
1792
1793
1794Bug fixes:
1795
1796 - bounding_box for the T1 driver wasn't converting UTF8 to ascii when
1797 calculating the advance width.
1798 http://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=20554
1799
1800 - bounding_box for the T1 driver wasn't including leading and
1801 trailing spaces in the bounding box as the other drivers did, it also
1802 produced strange results for empty strings or strings containing only
1803 spaces
1804
1805 - when reading CMYK jpeg images they were being transferred to the
1806 image object as is, producing a four channel image. It only looked ok
1807 due to an old still unfixed Photoshop bug. We now convert from the
1808 inverted CMYK that photoshop (and Corel for example) produce into RGB.
1809 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=20416
1810
1811 - reading a CYMK TIFF would result in a 4 channel image, reading any
1812 image with more than 4 channels (eg. RGB with 2 alpha channels) would
1813 result in an error.
1814 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=20415
1815
1816 - added /usr/local/include to the default include search path, since
1817 we were already searching /usr/local/lib for libraries.
1818
1819And various minor fixes and documentation updates.
