./graphics/GraphicsMagick, Tools and libraries for reading, writing, and manipulating images

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.3.37nb1, Package name: GraphicsMagick-1.3.37nb1, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

GraphicsMagick(TM) provides a powerful image manipulation and
translation utility. It is capable of displaying still images and
animations using the X Window system, provides a simple interface for
interactively editing images, and is capable of importing selected
windows or the entire desktop. GraphicsMagick can read and write over
88 image formats, including JPEG, TIFF, WMF, SVG, PNG, PNM, GIF, and
Photo CD. It can resize, rotate, sharpen, color reduce, or add
special effects to the image and save the result to any supported
format. GraphicsMagick may be used to create animated or transparent
.gifs, create composite images, create thumbnail images, and much,
much, more.

GraphicsMagick is one of your choices if you need a program to
manipulate and display images. If you want to develop your own
applications which use GraphicsMagick code or APIs, you need to
install GraphicsMagick-devel as well.

GraphicsMagick: updated to 1.3.37

1.3.37 (December ?, 2021)

Special Issues:

* The FTP site ftp.graphicsmagick.org is now shut down due to a lack
  of bandwith, extremely abusive users (including from Google and
  customers of Amazon Web Services), and a lack of support from the
  user community.  Another factor is that FTP support has been removed
  from popular web browsers.  This is very unfortunate since the site
  served multiple usages, including providing a lot of historical data
  (e.g. related to PNG) which may not be available elsewhere.

* The Microsoft Visual Studio build has not been updated for this
  release (although it does compile and the results do work fine) and
  I will not be providing any Windows installation packages
  corresponding to this release.  The problem is that the third-party
  'delegate' libraries are out of date and they need to be updated
  since some of them are known to contain severe security
  vulnerabilities.  Several third-party 'delegate' libraries now
  require real C'99 support, which means that Visual Studio 2015 or
  later would be required to build them.  The 'configure' program used
  to build the Visual Studio project files needs to be updated since
  otherwise a 20 minute project upgrade cycle is needed when using
  Visual Studio 2019, and to make minor path changes to avoid a
  multitude of project-file warnings while building.  The installation
  requirements for Visual Studio 2015 or later are different (related
  to run-time "redistributables", which are now very onerous) and so
  the Inno Setup installer needs some minor (or major) changes.  Many
  pleas for assistance have been made (e.g. even to help with testing
  to see if the software executes at all) but thus far the Microsoft
  Windows user community has not been helpful with regards to the
  Microsoft Visual Studio build.

* GraphicsMagick really does need some additional productive
  volunteers.  For several years now, the burden has entirely been on
  me.  I have been sheparding the project for 19 years already (and
  contributed to ImageMagick and GraphicsMagick combined for 25 years
  already).  It is not reasonable to expect someone with a full time
  job (and expecting to retire in a couple of years) to do all of the

Security Fixes:

* GraphicsMagick is participating in Google's oss-fuzz project due to
  the contributions and assistance of Alex Gaynor. Since February 4
  2018, 590 issues have been opened by oss-fuzz and 23 issues remain
  open (most of which are in third-party software such as development
  JasPer).  The issues list is available at
  https://bugs.chromium.org/p/oss-fuzz/issues/list under search term
  "graphicsmagick".  Issues are available for anyone to view and
  duplicate if they have been in "Verified" status for 30 days, or if
  they have been in "New" status for 90 days.  Please consult the
  GraphicsMagick ChangeLog file, Mercurial repository commit log, and
  the oss-fuzz issues list for details.

Bug fixes:

* CAPTION: Eliminate an assertion upon deallocation.

* CMYK: Fix broken reading of planar CMYK files (a regression since 1.3.27).

* ExecuteModuleProcess(): Add missing error reporting related to
  the -module command option.

* GIF: Handle GIF files where the 'opaque' index matches the number of
  colors by producing an extra colormap entry of transparent

* JP2: Adaptations to compile cleanly with JasPer 2.0.20.

* META: Fix types used to prefer unsigned types where possible and to
  use 'size_t' rather than 'int' for size values.

* MSL: A great many MSL parser fixes.

* Microsoft Windows: Detect and use Ghostscript point versions added
  after 9.52, after which the version number format was changed.

* PCX: Fix problem that 16-colors are used rather than 256-colors

* PDF: Fix MediaBox dimensions ("Incorrect MediaBox in PDF export").

* PDF: Use appropriate memory deallocator for memory returned by

* RGB: Fix broken reading of planar RGB files (a regression since

* TIFF: Fix double-charging for memory allocations (a regression since

* TIFF: Make sure that loops using TIFFReadScanline(), etc, do quit
  upon first reported error.

* WEBP: Enforce that embedded profiles provided by libWebP are not

* WEBP: Use SetImagePixelsEx() rather than GetImagePixelsEx() in

* WriteBlob(): Use appropriate handle for bzip2.

New Features:

* None

API Updates:

* DisposeTypeToString(): New utility function to convert a DisposeType
  to a string.

* StringToDisposeType(): New utility function to convert a string to a

Feature improvements:

* JP2: Support building using development JasPer 3.0.0 and request
  that it use our managed-memory allocators for resource control.

* Pixel Cache: Memory cache implementation of pixel cache now uses
  resource limited memory allocator.

* Analyze filter module: Add OpenMP speed-ups.

* IsImagesEqual(): Allow comparing images when the 'matte' channel
  flag differs.

Windows Delegate Updates/Additions:

* Remove bundled hp2xx.exe, mpeg2dec.exe, and mpeg2enc.exe.

Build Changes:

* Microsoft Windows: configure.ac fixes for gdi32 to depend on user32
  as well.

* Microsoft Windows: VisualMagick/All/All.vcproj.in updated to fix
  problem with not being able to load the 'All' project if the project
  supports the x64 target.

* Autotools build, many more TAP tests have been added, including to
  exercise all of the 'convert' commands.

* TIFF: Adaptations to compile cleanly for libtiff versions
  beyond 20201219.

* Magick++: Support compiling with C++'98 through C++'17.

* Autotools build, Add support for using an external
  'graphicsmagick_snapshot_copy' script to copy files for the
  'snapshot' target. This provides local control over how files are
  copied and where they are copied to.

Behavior Changes:

* TranslateTextEx(): If image resolution is impossibly small, then
  report the default resolution of 72 DPI, or the equivalent in
  centimeters if units is in pixels-per-centimeter.
