1This is primarily a feature release, but contains a fair few bug
2fixes, new features:
3
4- ability to read and write MS Windows ICO and CUR files
5
6- you can now add file format plugins to support new file formats
7
8- add POD coverage tests
9
10- setcolors() and addcolors() now accept color names and so on instead
11 of requiring Imager::Color objects.
12
13- flood_fill() can now fill to a specified border color instead of
14 just to the area the same color as the seed.
15
16Bug fixes:
17
18- bounding_box for the T1 driver wasn't converting UTF8 to ascii when
19 calculating the advance width.
20
21- bounding_box for the T1 driver wasn't including leading and trailing
22 spaces in the bounding box as the other drivers did, it also produced
23 strange results for empty strings or strings containing only spaces
24
25- when reading CMYK jpeg images they were being transferred to the
26 image object as is, producing a four channel image. It only looked
27 ok due to an old still unfixed Photoshop bug. We now convert from
28 the inverted CMYK that photoshop (and Corel for example) produce
29 into RGB.
30
31- reading a CYMK TIFF would result in a 4 channel image, reading any
32 image with more than 4 channels (eg. RGB with 2 alpha channels)
33 would result in an error.
34
35- added /usr/local/include to the default include search path, since
36 we were already searching /usr/local/lib for libraries.
37
38And various minor fixes and documentation updates.
