11
5970bd39
TC
12 - Provide more information about file format module load errors on a
13 failed image file read() or write().
14 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=69194
15
4ce3551c
TC
16 - use TIFFReadDirectory() instead of TIFFSetDirectory() to iterate
17 through TIFF images, since it checks for IFD loops.
18 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=69914
19
a16bca6d
TC
20 - don't leak memory when out of range palette indexes are supplied to
21 setscanline().
22 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=69242
23
24 - require a later version of CPAN::Meta to ensure JSON::PP and
25 CPAN::Meta::YAML are available.
26 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=69008
27
ac575c5f

28 - hoist the per-line calculations for the flines implementations, and
29 modernize the tests a bit.

31
86c8d19a

40Imager 0.84_01 - 8 Aug 2011
41==============
42
43Development release as a sanity check for the types re-work.
8d14daab
TC
44
45Massive types re-work:
46
47 - the type used internally for pixel co-ordinates and image sizes is
48 now 64-bit on 64-bit platforms (at least sane ones).
49
50 - size_t is now used consistently for memory block sizes.
51
52 - since this changes the binary interface, the Imager API version has
53 been incremented. Any module that uses the API will need to be
54 rebuilt. In most cases that will be enough, but calls to any APIs
55 that take a pointer to image sizes may need source changes.
56
57 - you should be able to create very large images on 64-bit systems,
58 if you have enough memory. Successfully created a 32768 x 49192 x
59 3 channel image, filled with a tiled image and scaled it. The
60 unscaled image was also successfully saved to a JPEG.
61
62 - check the image size before attempting to write BMP, GIF, JPEG,
63 PNG, SGI, TGA, TIFF images.
64
65 - correctly handle reading TGA images over 32767 pixels wide or tall.
66
67Incidental changes:
68
69 - the gif_left and gif_top tags are now clamped to non-negative
70 values when writing a GIF image.
71
72 - removed dead callback read/write code
73
74The default maximum memory size when reading files is now 1G.

77===========
78
79 - Imager no longer inherits from Exporter (unless you're running an
80 old, old perl.
81

TC
82 - Imager can now write progressive JPEGs (it could always read them).

TC
101 - convert colors to grayscale if the supplied (or generated) palette
102 contains only grays when performing error diffusion color
103 translation.
104 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=68508
105
59c150a4
TC
106 - writing a paletted image to GIF wouldn't always use the colors
107 supplied (or generated, eg. via make_colors => "mono"), which was
108 confusing at best.
109 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=67912
110
5b480b14

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

134
618a3282
TC
135 - compose() with the target, source or mask position off the top or
136 left of the target image didn't clip the source image correctly.
137 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=67220
138
139 - compose() now returns a useful error message on a non-positive
140 opacity.
141
142 - compose.im now at 100% test coverage. (As opposed to, umm, much,
143 much less.)

TC
146===========
147
148Bug fixes:
149
150 - eliminate calls to i_has_format() from the test suite, since it's
151 no longer a useful way to check for file format support. Eliminate
152 i_has_format() from the functions exposed via XS.
153 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=65863
154
7540f84a
TC
155 - eliminate calls to note(), which isn't in the (very old) version of
156 Test::More we have as a pre-requisite. note() is modern enough
157 that I don't feel a need to require a Test::More upgrade for it.
158 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=65864
159
81984f30

168
c901f27d
TC
169 - increase the version of Imager::Font::Type1 so that upgrades don't
170 downgrade the version in this file.
171 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=66250
172
173 - if we see an -rpath (or -R) option in $Config{lddlflags} supply
174 that option for the directories that would normally go in
175 LD_RUN_PATH. Typically an explicit -rpath overrides LD_RUN_PATH.

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

173c91ba 341 - fix the cache check for the X rgb.txt loader. This is typically
cb4f51d6
TC
342 used for color translation on Unix-like systems, and the fix
343 improves performance of supplying colors by name by about 80 times.
344 Test code that managed 3400 10x10 pixel boxes/second sped up to
345 25700 boxes/second.

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

724 noalpha channels or back.
725 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=30908
726
727 - rubthrough() now falls back to pasting when the source doesn't have
728 an alpha channel. This effectively treats the source as having a
729 max alpha channel, the right thing to do.

736 defines them with respect to a translucent source and destination.

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

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

1102Imager 0.55 - 16 Dec 2006
1103===========
1104
1105This is primarily a bug fix release.
1106
1107Note: Test::More is now a pre-requisite for Imager and is no longer bundled.
1108
1109There is one new feature:
1110
1111 - the Win32 font driver now supports UTF8 (RT 22166)
1112 http://www.cpanforum.com/threads/3276
1113 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=22166
1114
1115Several bugs were fixed:
1116
1117 - the string() method would not output the string "0"
1118 http://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=21770
1119
1120 - fills.c was failing to compile on Solaris 10 (compiler unknown)
1121 http://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=21944
1122
1123 - the gif_disposal and gif_user_input tags weren't being read from
1124 the file correctly
1125 http://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=22192
1126
1127 - gif.c was failing to build under MSVC
1128 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=23922
1129
1130 - in some cases strings passed to the string() method were treated as
1131 terminated by NUL (chr 0)
1132 http://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=21770
1133
1134 - on "MSWin32" perl builds we now link to -lzlib instead of -lz since
1135 that's the default build name for zlib on Win32.
1136 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=23064
1137
1138 - search $Config{incpath} for headers too, which we should have been
1139 doing all along.
1140
1141Win32 font driver fixes:
1142
1143 - the global descent value from bounding box was the wrong sign
1144 http://www.cpanforum.com/threads/3276
1145
1146 - if the first or last glyph overflowed the left or right side of the
1147 advance width they would be clipped
1148
1149
1150Imager 0.54 - 14 Sep 2006
1151===========
1152
1153This is primarily a feature release:
1154
1155 - a new qtype value 'mixing' has been added to the scale()
1156 method. This is faster than 'normal', slower than 'preview'. This
1157 is based on the method used by pnmscale, and seems to produce less
1158 blurry results than normal.
1159 http://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=20677
1160
1161 - the rubthrough() method can now render onto images with an alpha
1162 channel.
1163 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=20678
1164
1165 - the read_multi() method now falls back to calling doing a single
1166 image read via the read() method and write_multi() will now fall
1167 back to calling write() if a single image is supplied. This means
1168 you can simply call the read_multi() or write_multi() functions
1169 without having to check if the type is formatted by that method.
1170 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=19457
1171 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=19458
1172
1173 - the GIF loop extension can now be written. If you don't have
1174 libungif/giflib 4.1.4 (or some distribution's bugfixed equivalent) you
1175 should upgrade.
1176 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=21185
1177
1178 - getscanline() and setscanline() can now read/write palette index
1179 based data from/to the image for paletted images, by setting type to
1180 'index'.
1181 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=20338
1182
1183 - we no longer hassle you to disable GIF support
1184 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=20687
1185
1186 - minor documentation fixes
1187
1188
1189Imager 0.53 - 26 Jul 2006
1190===========
1191
1192This is a bugfix release.
1193
1194Some test code was left in a code path not covered by the test
1195suite. A test was added to cover this code path and the test code was
1196removed.

1199
1200Imager 0.52 - 25 Jul 2006
1201===========
1202
1203This is primarily a feature release, but contains a fair few bug
1204fixes, new features:
1205
1206 - ability to read and write MS Windows ICO and CUR files
1207
1208 - you can now add file format plugins to support new file formats
1209
1210 - add POD coverage tests
1211
1212 - setcolors() and addcolors() now accept color names and so on
1213 instead of requiring Imager::Color objects.
1214 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=20056
1215
1216 - flood_fill() can now fill to a specified border color instead of
1217 just to the area the same color as the seed.
1218 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=19618
1219
1220
1221Bug fixes:
1222
1223 - bounding_box for the T1 driver wasn't converting UTF8 to ascii when
1224 calculating the advance width.
1225 http://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=20554
1226
1227 - bounding_box for the T1 driver wasn't including leading and
1228 trailing spaces in the bounding box as the other drivers did, it also
1229 produced strange results for empty strings or strings containing only
1230 spaces
1231
1232 - when reading CMYK jpeg images they were being transferred to the
1233 image object as is, producing a four channel image. It only looked ok
1234 due to an old still unfixed Photoshop bug. We now convert from the
1235 inverted CMYK that photoshop (and Corel for example) produce into RGB.
1236 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=20416
1237
1238 - reading a CYMK TIFF would result in a 4 channel image, reading any
1239 image with more than 4 channels (eg. RGB with 2 alpha channels) would
1240 result in an error.
1241 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=20415
1242
1243 - added /usr/local/include to the default include search path, since
1244 we were already searching /usr/local/lib for libraries.
1245
1246And various minor fixes and documentation updates.
1247
1248
1249Imager 0.51 - 23 Apr 2006
