Imager 0.45 has been released and will soon be available on all CPAN mirrors.
This is primarily a bug-fix release. The following issues have beenfixed:
the dynamic filters Makefile would fail after everything had been built on Win32
the correct error messages are now produced for Freetype 2.0 errors
multiple master fonts are now supported by the freetype 2 driver
we now attempt to use freetype-config and pkg-config when probing for and configuring freetype 2.
we now attempt to use pkg-config when probing for and configuring libpng
we don't accept a directory indicating freetype 2.x headers as a freetype 1.x installation any more
reading a TGA image with a long (>127) idstring would result in an allocation error.
calling the read() method for a format supported by Imager but not supported by the current build (eg. reading a JPEG without libjpeg installed when Imager was built) no longer crashes with an undefined function error.
the i_glin() XS code wasn't copying the returned colors back correctly
the right-side bearing calculated for freetype2.x wasn't scaled from a fixed point number to an integer, this would cause pos_width() to be much luarger than was correct if the right-most character overflowed the character box.
saving a gradient file with Imager::Fountain->save() missed outputting a space between the last 2 parameters of each segment.
methods that work with an image and return a new image now warn when called in void context.
the Imager::Matrix2d rotate() method would only use the x and y parameters if both were non-zero.
- the FT1.x driver ignored the align parameter.
added a concept index for perldoc Imager
more examples in Imager::Draw
added examples to all filters in Imager::Filter
- many minor documentation fixes
