Bug fixes:

  • previously a transparency enabled GIF write (the default) would always use a GIF89a header even if none of the images were transparent.

  • previously the probe step for freetype-config would fail on cygwin

  • catch an invalid matrix parameter to convert() instead of crashing. RT #79922

  • remove the 16-bit/sample limitation from the documentation for setsamples(), it hasn't applied for many releases. RT #79989

  • don't copy setsamples() data parameter, it may be a large scalar. 79990

  • clean up .dSYM directories generated performing probes on OS X Mountain Lion.

  • pass the --verbose command-line option through to Imager::Probe in sub-module's Makefile.PLs RT #75878


  • support for giflib 5.0. (5.0.1 and later) RT #79029. The giflib API Imager uses doesn't have a mechanism to set the header version in 5.0.0.

  • update the GIF library probe code to check for the new giflib 5.0.1 EGifSetGifVersion() function, and to check for the giflib 4.2.0 uninitialized gif89 bug. RT #79679, giflib bug

  • avoid static variables when capturing IPTC data from JPEG files

  • match Imager::Font;:T1's error message translations to those from later versions of T1Lib.

  • for libtiff versions that support extended warning handlers (3.8.0 or later), use them to avoid some global variables.

  • note Image::ExifTool for better metadata support. RT #79251
