Please join us in celebrating GraphicsMagick's 10th Anniversary.
Depending on how one evaluates it, GraphicsMagick came to be on
November 19th, 2002, but it certainly came to be on December 6, 2002
when the 'gm' utility was introduced and the software became as it is
GraphicsMagick emerged due to a desire for a "stable" form of
ImageMagick with a stable code base, an accurate change-log, stable
API, carefully-managed ABI, diminishing bugs, and acknowledgment for
all contributors and all relevant copyrights and licenses.
GraphicsMagick has continued to adhere to its original mission
statement which may be read at
GraphicsMagick continues to survive and evolve based on its
volunteers. New volunteers are always welcome.
I am looking forward to the next ten years.
