I'm pleased to announce the V1.2.0 release of ArgyllCMS.
This is a feature and bugfix release following V1.1.1.

        MSWindows: <http://www.argyllcms.com/Argyll_V1.2.0_win32_exe.zip>
        OS X PPC 10.3+: 
        OS X Intel 10.4+ 
        Linux Intel 32 bit 
        Linux Intel 64 bit 

Change summary:

    * Re-worked gamut mapping to improve perceptual intent saturation levels, 
as well as
      improve highlight and shadow contrast. Added fine tuning to improve both 
      and the precision with which the source is mapped to the destination.
    * Added illumread, which allows measuring an illuminant and estimating its 
UV content,
      for better accuracy with FWA compensation.
    * Use a modified/forked version of libusb V1.0, that supports Win2K 
(libusb0.sys) back
      end by default. Supports 64 but MSWin using a combination of WinUSB.sys 
      [The HCFR does not work on Win 64 bit though, due to its buggy USB 
      NOTE that the included version of Libusb V1 has been carefully tested 
with all
      supported instruments on all supported platforms, and includes many bug 
      needed for correct functioning. While bug fixes have been fed upstream, 
not all
      have been adopted. In particular there is a nasty race condition that
      has not, and may never be fixed upstream, as well as missing critical 
    * Modified colprof -p to allow different abstract profiles to be applied 
for each
    * Added -I option (imitation) to printcal, so that an existing devices 
response can
      be set as a target.
    * Increase target/ofps.c vertex intersection retries from 10 to 40 to give 
it a
      better chance of working with difficult profiles.
    * Fixed bug in plot that shows up on XP+, where the window isn't dismissed 
      the first keystroke, but only after it has been moved or resized.
    * Changed CMYK black point to be natural, rather than the darkest point in 
      same direction and K only. This may wreck K only to black point matching, 
      it will stop printers with funny colored K ink from messing up the black 
    * Make Lacie Blue Eye colorimeter appear as an i1display.
    * Improved i1pro matching to Original Manufacturers Driver (see 
    * Improved i1pro/ColorMunki patch recognition for better uniformity.
    * Fixed bug in ColorMunki driver scan mode calibration when instrument is
      more sensitive than usual.
    * Added EV calculation to spotread -a
