9Bug fixes:
10
11 - the image file limits set by set_file_limits() weren't being
12 checked when reading TIFF files.

14
5970bd39
TC
15 - Provide more information about file format module load errors on a
16 failed image file read() or write().
17 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=69194
18
4ce3551c
TC
19 - use TIFFReadDirectory() instead of TIFFSetDirectory() to iterate
20 through TIFF images, since it checks for IFD loops.
21 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=69914
22
a16bca6d
TC
23 - don't leak memory when out of range palette indexes are supplied to
24 setscanline().
25 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=69242
26
27 - require a later version of CPAN::Meta to ensure JSON::PP and
28 CPAN::Meta::YAML are available.
29 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=69008
30
ac575c5f
TC
31 - hoist the per-line calculations for the flines implementations, and
32 modernize the tests a bit.
33 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=70126
34
86c8d19a
TC
35 - detect snprintf()/vsnprintf() (cheat by using Config.pm) and use
36 them when available.

46Imager 0.84_01 - 8 Aug 2011
47==============
48
49Development release as a sanity check for the types re-work.
8d14daab
TC
50
51Massive types re-work:
52
53 - the type used internally for pixel co-ordinates and image sizes is
54 now 64-bit on 64-bit platforms (at least sane ones).
55
56 - size_t is now used consistently for memory block sizes.
57
58 - since this changes the binary interface, the Imager API version has
59 been incremented. Any module that uses the API will need to be
60 rebuilt. In most cases that will be enough, but calls to any APIs
61 that take a pointer to image sizes may need source changes.
62
63 - you should be able to create very large images on 64-bit systems,
64 if you have enough memory. Successfully created a 32768 x 49192 x
65 3 channel image, filled with a tiled image and scaled it. The
66 unscaled image was also successfully saved to a JPEG.
67
68 - check the image size before attempting to write BMP, GIF, JPEG,
69 PNG, SGI, TGA, TIFF images.
70
71 - correctly handle reading TGA images over 32767 pixels wide or tall.
72
73Incidental changes:
74
75 - the gif_left and gif_top tags are now clamped to non-negative
76 values when writing a GIF image.
77
78 - removed dead callback read/write code
79
80The default maximum memory size when reading files is now 1G.

85 - Imager no longer inherits from Exporter (unless you're running an
86 old, old perl.
87

107 - convert colors to grayscale if the supplied (or generated) palette
108 contains only grays when performing error diffusion color
109 translation.
110 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=68508
111
59c150a4
TC
112 - writing a paletted image to GIF wouldn't always use the colors
113 supplied (or generated, eg. via make_colors => "mono"), which was
114 confusing at best.
115 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=67912
116
5b480b14

117 - replace (imager|tony)@imager.perl.org in the doc, since I don't

TC
134
135Bug fixes:

140
618a3282
TC
141 - compose() with the target, source or mask position off the top or
142 left of the target image didn't clip the source image correctly.
143 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=67220
144
145 - compose() now returns a useful error message on a non-positive
146 opacity.
147
148 - compose.im now at 100% test coverage. (As opposed to, umm, much,
149 much less.)

TC
152===========
153
154Bug fixes:
155
156 - eliminate calls to i_has_format() from the test suite, since it's
157 no longer a useful way to check for file format support. Eliminate
158 i_has_format() from the functions exposed via XS.
159 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=65863
160
7540f84a
TC
161 - eliminate calls to note(), which isn't in the (very old) version of
162 Test::More we have as a pre-requisite. note() is modern enough
163 that I don't feel a need to require a Test::More upgrade for it.
164 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=65864
165
81984f30
TC
166 - skip the threads tests on Test::More 2.00_*

c901f27d
TC
175 - increase the version of Imager::Font::Type1 so that upgrades don't
176 downgrade the version in this file.
177 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=66250
178
179 - if we see an -rpath (or -R) option in $Config{lddlflags} supply
180 that option for the directories that would normally go in
181 LD_RUN_PATH. Typically an explicit -rpath overrides LD_RUN_PATH.

259 channels are either 0, sourced from a single input channel or 1.
260 This significantly speeds up presets like "addalpha", "green".
261 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=51254

173c91ba 347 - fix the cache check for the X rgb.txt loader. This is typically
cb4f51d6
TC
348 used for color translation on Unix-like systems, and the fix
349 improves performance of supplying colors by name by about 80 times.
350 Test code that managed 3400 10x10 pixel boxes/second sped up to
351 25700 boxes/second.

730 noalpha channels or back.
731 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=30908
732
733 - rubthrough() now falls back to pasting when the source doesn't have
734 an alpha channel. This effectively treats the source as having a
735 max alpha channel, the right thing to do.
736 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=29944
737
738 - re-worked most of the area filling code to use a common set of

741 Rewrote most of the combine modes to match the way the SVG draft
742 defines them with respect to a translucent source and destination.

787 problem with loading such an image. I haven't been able to find any
788 tools beyond the GIMP that handle alpha-channel 16-bit TGAs, so
789 I'll match it's behaviour. See issue 114913 in the GIMP's

1108Imager 0.55 - 16 Dec 2006
1109===========
1110
1111This is primarily a bug fix release.
1112
1113Note: Test::More is now a pre-requisite for Imager and is no longer bundled.
1114
1115There is one new feature:
1116
1117 - the Win32 font driver now supports UTF8 (RT 22166)
1118 http://www.cpanforum.com/threads/3276
1119 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=22166
1120
1121Several bugs were fixed:
1122
1123 - the string() method would not output the string "0"
1124 http://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=21770
1125
1126 - fills.c was failing to compile on Solaris 10 (compiler unknown)
1127 http://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=21944
1128
1129 - the gif_disposal and gif_user_input tags weren't being read from
1130 the file correctly
1131 http://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=22192
1132
1133 - gif.c was failing to build under MSVC
1134 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=23922
1135
1136 - in some cases strings passed to the string() method were treated as
1137 terminated by NUL (chr 0)
1138 http://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=21770
1139
1140 - on "MSWin32" perl builds we now link to -lzlib instead of -lz since
1141 that's the default build name for zlib on Win32.
1142 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=23064
1143
1144 - search $Config{incpath} for headers too, which we should have been
1145 doing all along.
1146
1147Win32 font driver fixes:
1148
1149 - the global descent value from bounding box was the wrong sign
1150 http://www.cpanforum.com/threads/3276
1151
1152 - if the first or last glyph overflowed the left or right side of the
1153 advance width they would be clipped
1154
1155
1156Imager 0.54 - 14 Sep 2006
1157===========
1158
1159This is primarily a feature release:
1160
1161 - a new qtype value 'mixing' has been added to the scale()
1162 method. This is faster than 'normal', slower than 'preview'. This
1163 is based on the method used by pnmscale, and seems to produce less
1164 blurry results than normal.
1165 http://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=20677
1166
1167 - the rubthrough() method can now render onto images with an alpha
1168 channel.
1169 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=20678
1170
1171 - the read_multi() method now falls back to calling doing a single
1172 image read via the read() method and write_multi() will now fall
1173 back to calling write() if a single image is supplied. This means
1174 you can simply call the read_multi() or write_multi() functions
1175 without having to check if the type is formatted by that method.
1176 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=19457
1177 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=19458
1178
1179 - the GIF loop extension can now be written. If you don't have
1180 libungif/giflib 4.1.4 (or some distribution's bugfixed equivalent) you
1181 should upgrade.
1182 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=21185
1183
1184 - getscanline() and setscanline() can now read/write palette index
1185 based data from/to the image for paletted images, by setting type to
1186 'index'.
1187 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=20338
1188
1189 - we no longer hassle you to disable GIF support
1190 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=20687
1191
1192 - minor documentation fixes
1193
1194
1195Imager 0.53 - 26 Jul 2006
1196===========
1197
1198This is a bugfix release.
1199
1200Some test code was left in a code path not covered by the test
1201suite. A test was added to cover this code path and the test code was
1202removed.

1205
1206Imager 0.52 - 25 Jul 2006
1207===========
1208
1209This is primarily a feature release, but contains a fair few bug
1210fixes, new features:
1211
1212 - ability to read and write MS Windows ICO and CUR files
1213
1214 - you can now add file format plugins to support new file formats
1215
1216 - add POD coverage tests
1217
1218 - setcolors() and addcolors() now accept color names and so on
1219 instead of requiring Imager::Color objects.
1220 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=20056
1221
1222 - flood_fill() can now fill to a specified border color instead of
1223 just to the area the same color as the seed.
1224 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=19618
1225
1226
1227Bug fixes:
1228
1229 - bounding_box for the T1 driver wasn't converting UTF8 to ascii when
1230 calculating the advance width.
1231 http://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=20554
1232
1233 - bounding_box for the T1 driver wasn't including leading and
1234 trailing spaces in the bounding box as the other drivers did, it also
1235 produced strange results for empty strings or strings containing only
1236 spaces
1237
1238 - when reading CMYK jpeg images they were being transferred to the
1239 image object as is, producing a four channel image. It only looked ok
1240 due to an old still unfixed Photoshop bug. We now convert from the
1241 inverted CMYK that photoshop (and Corel for example) produce into RGB.
1242 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=20416
1243
1244 - reading a CYMK TIFF would result in a 4 channel image, reading any
1245 image with more than 4 channels (eg. RGB with 2 alpha channels) would
1246 result in an error.
1247 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=20415
1248
1249 - added /usr/local/include to the default include search path, since
1250 we were already searching /usr/local/lib for libraries.
1251
1252And various minor fixes and documentation updates.
1253
1254
1255Imager 0.51 - 23 Apr 2006

1275 or 4 channel image to jpeg or a 2 channel image to tga where the
1276 output is an in-memeory buffer.
