Release Notes: This is a release candidate for the upcoming 2.0.34 release.
Release Notes: GIF support has been restored. Many other improvements and fixes have been made in recent updates since 2.0.15.
Release Notes: This version no longer contains an instance of declaring variables after the first line of executable code appears. This is of course not allowed by ANSI C, although many compilers accept it.
Release Notes: Various test programs now compile in the absence of PNG support. gdIOCtx correctly calls gdFree rather than free. There are various cleanups to pass -Wall without warnings. Support for Adobe-style Type 1 fonts (.pfa and .pfb files) has been added via Freetype. gdImageColorResolve and gdImageColorResolveAlpha will not attempt to resolve a color request to the transparent color index (for palette-based images). There is improved font search path support, a better threshold for two-color "mono" images, memory leak fixes, a text rotation fix, and more.
Release Notes: The 2.x series adds support for truecolor images and alpha channels.
Release Notes: Support for the FreeType2 library has been added, as well as support for fonts in the DEFAULT_FONTPATH or GDFONTPATH shell environment. Some unused symbols have been removed to reduce the number of comipler warnings. A size comparison bug in gdImageCompare has been fixed. REXX is now mentionned, and memory allocation functions are wrapped within the library.
Release Notes: A memory leak was fixed and the documentation was updated.
Release Notes: Debugged and improved WBMP support, new WBMP tests in gdtest.c, removal of use of the platform-dependent 'install' command, and more.
Release Notes: Support for JPEG and WBMP output, the gdImageColorClosestHWB function is based on hue, whiteness, blackness, superior to the regular gdImageColorClosest function, and a license clarification: yes, you can modify gd.
