I'm pleased to announce that version 1.11.2 of LPROF is now available. LPROF
is an open source application that will create ICC profiles for use with
other applications such as Scribus, CinePaint, Krita, UFRAW and the
development version of GIMP. This is the fifth development snap shot of the
work that has been underway since LPROF became a SourceForge project. Please
see the LPROF SourceForge web pages http://sourceforge.net/projects/lprof
This is a development snapshot of what will become version 1.12 when it is
stable. Although testing by the development team indicates that this snapshot
appears to be stable it is a development release and as such it should
not considered to be a stable release. It has not been extensively tested
and may have significant unknown bugs. This is being made available so that
users can test the new release and report problems and make suggestions for
Changes since 1.11.1
1. LPROF now includes scons-local to ensure that all users are using a know
good version of SCons.
2. Some changes have been made to the SCons scripts to make builds more
reliable. The build should now run correctly on most POSIX systems. But
builds on Windows and Mac OS/X have not been tested at this point. Please
report both problems and successes with builds. If you have build problems
on your platform please report it in the LPROF bug tracker on
SourceForge.net. If you would like to report a successfull build please
report it in the LPROF Open Discussion form on SourceForge.net.
3. LPROF now correctly supports IT8.7/2 images with color depths greater than
8 bits/channel and should correctly handle images with the following per
a. 8 bit unsigned integer.
b. 16 bit signed integer.
c. 16 bit unsigned integer.
d. 32 bit signed integer.
e. 32 bit unsigned integer.
f. 32 bit floating point (float).
g. 64 bit floating point (double).
Only a and c have been tested at this point and users with the ability to
create other file formats are encouraged to test these and report both
problems and successes. If you find an image format that does not work
please report it in the LPROF bug tracker on SourceForge.net. If you would
like to report a success please report it in the LPROF Open Discussion form
4. To implement #3 LPROF is now dependant on VIGRA. Any version from 1.30 on
should work. Both 1.3.3 and 1.4.0 have been tested.
