Hello list, Richard and Graeme,
I think, that direct support of measuremnts equipment makes a lot of 
sense for a LINUX colormanagement framework.

Graeme, could you imagine to make the ArgyllCMS code for support of 
measuremnt instruments available to colord / Oyranos ?

question to the LINUX geeks:
I think dealing with measurements instruments under LINUX is comparable 
with dealing with graohic cards. Is there an example avilable, where a 
vendor for graphics cards changed his licensing policy to open source 
drivers and sells more graphic cards to the LINUX community ?

Background of my question is the communication with X-Rite. I think if 
we can provide examples, that a more open licensing politic leads 
increases the amount of sold units, this will help much to solve the 
ongoing problems with support for X-Rite instruments under LINUX.

best regards

> 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
> Bugfixes:
>   - 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
