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.
Tarballs can be found here:
- 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.
- 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
