Release Notes: The "composite" methods were rewritten and enhanced.
Release Notes: Thread safety was improved.
Release Notes: This release prevents shell command injection in delegate code (via filenames) and stops some memory leaks.
Release Notes: Minor bugfixes, security fixes, and code cleanup.
Release Notes: Recently disclosed libpng vulnerabilities were fixed. LZW compression is now enabled by default.
Release Notes: In addition to fixing bugs, this version increases stability, improves algorithms, adds a higher level C interface (MagikWand), and adds the ability to apply mathematical expressions to an image list. Also, all regression tests pass on a variety of platforms at both 8 and 16 bits-per-sample.
Release Notes: Previous versions wrote incorrect JNG files. The "-thumbnail" option was added.
Release Notes: The -extract option was added to read a part of an image. JNG support was added.
Release Notes: Unnecessary quantization of grayscale images in MogrifyImage() was eliminated. Conversion to grayscale is now 10 times faster. End-of-file is now an informational error. 16-bit TIFF was occasionally written in the wrong LSB/MSB order. IMDisplay now displays CMYK images correctly. A small memory leak in the utilities was fixed.
Release Notes: Much faster image opening, closing, and panning in the "display" utility, a faster video codec, JNG support, and PNG8, PNG24, and PNG32 output formats. Quantizing is no longer lossy when the image already has the desired number of colors or fewer.
