I am happy to announce the release of GraphicsMagick 1.3.2. This
release is ABI and API compatible with previous 1.3.X releases. This
release contains additional bug fixes and performance enhancements.
The continued performance enhancements are pretty remarkable given
that the processing performance is already 2X to 5X better than the
ImageMagick 5.5.2 release from whence GraphicsMagick started, and that
is not even considering the multiplying factor of the multi-core
support (e.g. 4X becomes 16X on 4 core hardware).
To date, no problems have been reported with the OpenMP updates in
GraphicsMagick 1.3.X, in spite of the many thousands of downloads.
Download the release from
the GraphicsMagick web page at http://www.graphicsmagick.org/.
The following are the updates for this release since 1.3.1:
* -roll was failing for colormapped images.
* VID: Memory leak fix.
* PREVIEW: Solarize parameter was wrong.
* Delegates previously using 'spawn' needed an ampersand so that
starting the child process does not hang the GUI.
* +profile now supports an exclusion syntax. For example ``+profile
'!icm,*'`` removes all of the profiles except for the ICM profile.
The new syntax also allows multiple profiles to be listed at once.
* AdaptiveThreshold, Blur, Convolve, and MotionBlur no longer
process the opacity channel unless the image has one.
