Update graphics/giflib to 5.1.4.
* Fix SF bug #94: giflib 5 loves to fail to load images... a LOT.
* Fix SF Bug #92: Fix buffer overread in gifbuild.
* Fix SF Bug #93: Add bounds check in gifbuild netscape2.0 path
* Fix SF Bug #89: Fix buffer overread in gifbuild.
As of this version the library and code has been seriously abused by fuzzers,
smoking out crash bugs (now fixed) induced by various kinds of severely
* Prevent malloc randomess from causing the header output routine to emit
a GIF89 version string even when no GIF89 features are present. Only
breaks tests, not production code, but it's odd this wasn't caught sooner.
* Prevent malloc randomess from producing sporadic failures by causing
sanity checks added in 5.1.2 to misfire.
* Bulletproof gif2rgb against 0-height images. Addressed SF bug #78:
Heap overflow in gif2rgb with images of size 0, also SF bug #82.
* Remove unnecessary duplicate EGifClose() in gifcolor.c. Fixes SF bug #83
introduced in 5.1.2.
* Fix SF Bug #84: incorrect return of DGifSlurp().

Remove no more available configure arguments to reflect current configure script
(they were removed in giflib-5.0.0).

Update graphics/giflib to 5.1.2.
* Code hardening using reallocarray() from OpenBSD.
* Sanity check in giffilter catches files with malformed extension records
Fixes SourceForge bug #63: malformed gif causes segfault in giffilter.
* Inexpensive sanity check in DGifSlurp() catches malformed files with
no image descriptor. Fixes SourceForge bug #64: malformed gif causes
crash in giftool.
* Fix SourceForge bug #66: GifDrawBoxedText8x8() modifying constant input
* Bail out of GIF read on invalid pixel width. Addresses Savannah bug
#67: invalid shift in dgif_lib.c
* Fix SourceForge bug #69: #69 Malformed: Gif file with no extension
block after a GRAPHICS_EXT_FUNC_CODE extension causes segfault (in
* Fix SourceForge bug #71: Buffer overwrite when giffixing a malformed gif.
* Fix SourceForge bug #73: Null pointer deference in gifclrmap (only
reachable with malformed GIF).
* Fix SourceForge bug #74: Double free in gifsponge under 5.1,1,
for any valid gif image.
* Fix SourceForge bug #75: GAGetArgs overflows due to uncounted use of va_arg.
* Sanity check in giffix catches some malformed files. Addresses
SourceForge bug #77: dgif_lib.c: extension processing error

5.1.0 introduce API changes.
| 2014-05-15 16:16:11 by Adam Ciarcinski | Files touched by this commit (4) |
Changes to the API require a library major-version bump.
* A small change to the API: DGifClose() and EGifClose() now take a
pointer-to-int second argument (like the corresponding openers)
where a diagnostic code will be deposited when they return
GIF_ERROR. This replaces the old behavior in which the GifFile
structure was left unfreed so the Error member in it could be filled
and remain available. The change was was required because it's
not always possible to free the struct afterwards. Case in point is
a C# wrapper for giflib (or any language/environment where you can't
just free objects allocated in a foreign shared library.)
* Minor fix for SF bug 56; BitsPerPixel may be left as uninitialized
value when reading (truncated) gif.
* Applied SF patch 17: Use a fallback on Windows where mkstemp is not
* Applied SF patch 15: Code hardening, preventing spurious
* Removed gif2raw from utils. Its blithe assumption that the EGA16
palette is a reliable default is now about 20 years obsolete. Format
conversion is better done with convert(1) from the ImageMagick suite,
