I am pleased to announce a new release of the OpenICC-data ICC profiles 
package. The package is polished and improves upon previous releases.

The 1.2.0 is a maintenance release. ICC profile data has partitial 
changed to cover the internal ICC hash. The hash does not alter standard 
ICC identification or colorimetric data. To colour management software the 
profiles appear to be the same as in the previous release.
The PhotoGamutRGB_avg6c.icc is completely removed to provide homogenous 
libpng/zlib licensing.

The OpenICC Data package covers a range of ICC profiles for many basic 
usage scenarios. It is intended as a common set of colour management data 
among distributions and projects in oder to reduce the amount of download 
space for each project.

Contained are ICC profiles for internet, photo editing, ICC PCS profiles, 
3D compositing and more. Standard printing conditions are described by
characterisation data from FOGRA and NPES to easily create own custom 

Licensing is zlib/libpng compatible and thus OSI approved.

         * [data]: omit PhotoGamutRGB until license is clear
         * [data]: add icc-profile package for a small set including Cmyk + Gray
         * [data]: set ICC profile ID's, a calculated ID should remain the same

The Cmyk print profile ISOcoated_v2_bas.icc is the equivilent to 
the former coated_FOGRA39L_argl.icc and is recommended as the default 
Cmyk color space for untagged data and for separation. It is packaged as a 
separate RPM in http://sourceforge.net/projects/openicc/files/basICColor-Profiles/basICColor_Offset_2009-1.1.0.tar.gz/download
