Scilab is a Matlab-like free software (www.scilab.org).
CHANGELOG from RC1
+ new mkfftfilter function from Jocelyn.
+ build process slightly improved.
+ INCOMPATIBLE: Double-precision Images are now normalized like M4t1ab:
TYPE OF IMAGE SIZE VALUE RANGE
Grayscale images 2D 0-1
Truecolor images 3D (RGB) 0-1
Paletted images, index 2D 1-NC (Number of Colors)
Paletted images, colormap NCx3 0-1
This has many advantages. For instance, imwrite and imshow doesn't require
normalization to obscure values such as 255 or 65535.
+ Tested with animal 0.10.4, ImageMagick 5.5.7-15 and gandalf 1.1 to 1.3.2
