colord is a system activated daemon that maps devices to color profiles.
It is used by gnome-color-manager for system integration and use when
there are no users logged in.

See http://colord.hughsie.com/ for more details.

Version 0.1.6
Released: 2011-04-24

 - Sensor devices are now being managed by colord to make calibration a
   nicer experience in the desktop. At the moment only taking spot
   colors is supported, and only the huey driver is available.
 - Applications can now request profiles for standard color spaces such
   as sRGB, AdobeRGB and ProPhotoRGB.
 - Lots of system performance improvements, but be sure to use g-c-m
   from git for the fastest session startup.

New Features:
 - Add 3 tools for reverse engineering the huey colorimeter
 - Add a DBus interface designed so normal users can use color sensors
 - Add a dummy sensor object that is enabled if 'CreateDummySensor' is set
 - Add an async version of CdClient:Connect()
 - Add a --verbose command line option to print the debugging in color
 - Add CdColor to libcolord so we have some reusable GTypes to use
 - Add cd-create-profile, which provides a way to build a NCP
 - Add GetStandardSpace to the DBus API
 - Add support for sensor devices in libcolord
 - Add get-sensors and get-sensor-reading commands to the colormgr tool
 - Add the native Huey sensor driver which is taken from gnome-color-manager
 - Add two options to colord: --timed-exit and --immediate-exit
 - Import the sensor udev rules file from gnome-color-manager
 - Move gcm-fix-profile from GNOME Color Manager as cd-fix-profile
 - Update the architecture plan to include sensor devices

 - Do not emit a critical warning if ID_MODEL doesn't exist for a device
 - Remove any .icc suffix automatically from the encoded profile title
 - Return an error if the user tries to create a persistant profile
 - The DTP92 cannot profile LCDs, according to Graeme
 - Use cmsOpenProfileFromFile() rather than getting the complete profile content
 - Use the embedded profile-id if it is available, else fallback to the file MD5
 - Use the FILE_checksum metadata if it is available to speed up session startup
