ImageMagick 6.8.9-0


ImageMagick® is a software suite to create, edit, compose, or convert bitmap images. It can read and write images in a variety of formats (over 100) including DPX, EXR, GIF, JPEG, JPEG-2000, PDF, PhotoCD, PNG, Postscript, SVG, and TIFF. Use ImageMagick to resize, flip, mirror, rotate, distort, shear and transform images, adjust image colors, apply various special effects, or draw text, lines, polygons, ellipses and Bézier curves. The functionality of ImageMagick is typically utilized from the command line or you can use the features from programs written in your favorite language. Choose from these interfaces: G2F (Ada), MagickCore (C), MagickWand (C), ChMagick (Ch), ImageMagickObject (COM+), Magick++ (C++), JMagick (Java), L-Magick (Lisp), NMagick (Neko/haXe), MagickNet (.NET), PascalMagick (Pascal), PerlMagick (Perl), MagickWand for PHP (PHP), IMagick (PHP), PythonMagick (Python), RMagick (Ruby), or TclMagick (Tcl/TK). With a language interface, use ImageMagick to modify or create images dynamically and automagically.

6.5.9 [02-17-10]

-Make -define png:color-type less persnickity about what it will accept.
-added use of -precision in 'showkernel' output of -morphology
-correct use of a 'reflected kernel' for 'Convolve' 'Dilate' and
'Distance' Morphology primatives. This does not have a performance hit,
though is only truely applicable when the kernel is asymmetric. Note that
'Erode' does not use a 'reflected' kernel, so that 'Open' and 'Close'
operations work properly. This 'reflected usage is defined by online
morphology lecture notes (Google for "EECE Binary Morphology")
-Added convolve kernel scaling setting "-set option:convolve:scale N"
If undefined morphology convolve does not do any scaling or normalization
of the convolution kernel. A value of 0.0 causes normalization for both
zero and non-zero (added weights) kernel types.
-Speed up reading the PSD image format.
-Add the -precision option. Use it to set the maximum number of significant
digits to be printed.
-Add -features option to the identify program to display channel features.
-Add support for compact floating point (i.e. -depth 16 -define
-Transparent images no longer flicker on certain system when using the
display program.
-Permit interactive resizing with the display program.
-Support heterogeneous distributed processing, see
-Fix semaphore assertion when reading a corrupt image with Magick++.
-Add support for -brightness-contrast option.
- Add support for the BGRA raw image format.
-Added Kernel Generator to generate kernels from user strings, which
allows the generation in many built in kernels for both Convolution
and other Morphological methods. New Kernels currently include..
Convolution: Gaussian, Blur, Comet
Morphological: Rectangle, Square, Diamond, Disk, Plus
Distance: Chebyshev, Manhatten, Knight, Euclidean
And both old and new (rectangular) user defined kernel specifications
including the use of 'nan' to represent elements which are not part
of the kernel definition. List built-in kernel types use "-list kernel"
-Added -morphology {method}[:{iteration}] {kernel_string}
Initial methods includes no only the basic morphology methods: Dilate,
Erode, Open, Close; and a pixel color preserving 'Intensity' version, but
also the special methods: Convolve, and Distance. Of course the
appropriate kernel should be provided for each specific method.
- Add OpenCL-enabled filter (e.g. convert image.png -process
"convolve '-1, -1, -1, -1, 9, -1, -1, -1, -1'" image.jpg).
-Added StringTo...() processing functions

The constantly monitors the update of all programs, including information from the ImageMagick 6.8.9-1 changelog file, however sometimes it can happen that data are not complete or are outdated.We assume that author continue's to develop 6.9.0 version with further advanced features, and soon you will be informed. Equally important 7.0.0 upgrades of the program we will continue to monitor.
