I'm pleased to announce the V1.2.0 release of ArgyllCMS. This is a feature and bugfix release following V1.1.1. Sources: <http://www.argyllcms.com/Argyll_V1.2.0_src.zip> Executables: MSWindows: <http://www.argyllcms.com/Argyll_V1.2.0_win32_exe.zip> OS X PPC 10.3+: <http://www.argyllcms.com/Argyll_V1.2.0_osx10.3_ppc_bin.tgz> OS X Intel 10.4+ <http://www.argyllcms.com/Argyll_V1.2.0_osx10.4_i86_bin.tgz> Linux Intel 32 bit <http://www.argyllcms.com/Argyll_V1.2.0_linux_x86_bin.tgz> Linux Intel 64 bit <http://www.argyllcms.com/Argyll_V1.2.0_linux_x86_64_bin.tgz> 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 smoothness 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 and ptlibusb0.sys. [The HCFR does not work on Win 64 bit though, due to its buggy USB implementation.] NOTE that the included version of Libusb V1 has been carefully tested with all supported instruments on all supported platforms, and includes many bug fixes 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 functionality (clearep()). * Modified colprof -p to allow different abstract profiles to be applied for each intent. * 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 by 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 the same direction and K only. This may wreck K only to black point matching, but it will stop printers with funny colored K ink from messing up the black point. * Make Lacie Blue Eye colorimeter appear as an i1display. * Improved i1pro matching to Original Manufacturers Driver (see doc/i1proDriver.html). * 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 For a full list of changes from V1.2.1 see <http://www.argyllcms.com/doc/ChangesSummary.html> Graeme Gill.
