Lire 0.5.2 Released: New Descriptor

The 0.5.2 release of LIRe brings along a new descriptor, which is kind or "more advanced version of a color histogram". The so called color correlogram is based on the probability to find pixels of certain colors in certain neighborhoods. Leaving the theoretical part aside the color correlogram is a new way to retrieve photos with LIRe based on color and color distribution, which might be very interesting for applications heavily depending on colors.

Further information on the correlogram might be found at the Development Wiki: http://www.semanticmetadata.net/wiki/doku.php?id=lire:autocolorcorrelation
