At very long last I've uploaded ArgyllCMS V1.1.0 RC1 (Release Candidate 1)
to the website to give interested people some time to test and report any
bugs or problems. If there is not too much wrong with it, my intention is
to make V1.1.0 the current stable release in about two weeks.

Summary of changes from V1.0.4:

    Major:

        Spyder3 and ColorMunki Design, Photo and Create instrument support 
added.
        (Thanks to all those who's donations went towards the Spyder 3 and 
Color Munki,
        and thanks also to the individual who provided the vital information to 
enable
        the ColorMunki Create - you know who you are ;-)

        Added a complete printer calibration system. This
        can work either with a print system that supports
        per channel print calibration curves, or
        purely using ICC profiling mechanisms.

        Default targen (OFPS) test point distribution
        has been re-written to generate test points on
        the gamut surface, refine the point locations
        when using a guide profile, and use a better
        error estimate model to determine the test point
        locations. Hopefully this will result in better quality
        profiles.

        Improved and re-tuned gamut mapping. This is noticeably
        smoother and better retains source image detail (thanks to
        Klaus Karcher for the challenging test images!)

        Re-tuned the cLUT profile creation smoothness vs. accuracy.

    Minor:

        Improved collink K only black and colorant handling so that
            the gamut mapping is consistent with the special handling.
        Added i1pro & Color Munki phopto flash measurement support.
        Improve reliability of detecting backwards read i1pro/Munki strips.
        Added option to dispcal and dispread to allows an external command
            to supply display readings, so that it's possible to make
            foreign instruments work with them.
        Fixed absolute spectral reading calibration error for i1pro.
        Added spotread option to save spectral reading of an illuminant to
            a .sp file.
        Provided freely distributable sRGB, Clay1998 and lab2lab profiles
            in ref directory.
        Added Color Rendering Index (Ra) to spotread measurement results.

        + many other bug fixes and more minor additions.

So get testing and enjoy !

Graeme Gill.
