./graphics/potrace, Utility for transforming bitmaps into vector graphics

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.16, Package name: potrace-1.16, Maintainer: adam

Potrace is a utility for tracing a bitmap, which means, transforming
a bitmap into a smooth, scalable image. The input is a bitmap (PBM,
PGM, PPM, or BMP), and the default output is one of several vector
file formats. A typical use is to create EPS files from scanned
data, such as company or university logos, handwritten notes, etc.
The resulting image is not "jaggy" like a bitmap, but smooth. It can
then be rendered at any resolution.

Potrace can currently produce the following output formats: EPS,
PostScript, SVG (scalable vector graphics), PGM (for easy
antialiasing of pixel-based images), and XFig. An experimental
Gimppath backend is also provided. Additional backends might be added
in the future.

A separate program, mkbitmap, is also provided. This program can act
as a pre-processor for potrace, applying scaling and various filters
to an image before converting it to a bitmap. This is useful for
potracing greyscale and color images.

Log message:
potrace: updated to 1.16

Release 1.16

This release consists of bugfixes and minor portability improvements.
A potential arithmetic overflow was fixed. Rotation angles are now
normalized to between -180 and 180. We now use binary file I/O on the
OS/2 platform. The test suite tolerances were adjusted. The
configuration option --enable-local-getopt was renamed as
--with-included-getopt. Some build system improvements. Thanks to
Henri Salo and Dave Yeo for reporting bugs and suggesting

Log message:
all: migrate several HOMEPAGEs to https

pkglint --only "https instead of http" -r -F

With manual adjustments afterwards since pkglint 19.4.4 fixed a few
indentations in unrelated lines.

This mainly affects projects hosted at SourceForce, as well as
freedesktop.org, CTAN and GNU.

Log message:
Update potrace to 1.15.

v1.15 2017/08/05
	(2017/08/05) PS1 - use round() instead of rint()
	(2017/08/05) PS1 - portability: set both _POSIX_C_SOURCE and
	_NETBSD_SOURCE to enable strdup prototype in string.h, as
	_XOPEN_SOURCE=500 doesn't work on macOS, _XOPEN_SOURCE=600 doesn't
	work on SunOS, and _POSIX_C_SOURCE alone doesn't work on Minix.
	(2017/08/02) PS1 - fixed a potential arithmetic overflow.
	(2017/06/17) PS1 - fixed a bug with very large bitmaps. Reported
	by Michael Voříšek.
	(2017/03/05) PS1 - autoconf: added --enable-local-getopt to avoid
	using the system-wide getopt library (it may still end up being
	used on GNU systems).
	(2017/03/05) PS1 - portability: moved getopt.h to a subdirectory,
	to be included only when needed. Reported by Daniel Macks.
	(2017/03/05) PS1 - portability: use _XOPEN_SOURCE=600 to fix macOS
	(2017/02/27) PS1 - fixed more buffer overflows (not security
	critical), including one reported by Agostino Sarubbo. This also
	fixes CVE-2017-12067.

Log message:
Updated potrace to 1.14.

February 19, 2017: Release 1.14

 This release consists of bugfixes and minor portability improvements.
 A number of bugs triggered by malformed BMP files have been fixed,
 including CVE-2016-8685 and CVE-2016-8686. Error reporting has been
 improved. The image size is now truncated when the bitmap data ends
 prematurely. It is now possible to use negative dy in bitmap
 data. Portability has been improved to encompass C++11. The default
 compiler is now clang if available. Thanks to Nelson Beebe and Martin
 Gieseking for reporting portability issues, and to Agostino Sarubbo
 for reporting bugs.
