1. Will this be useful or not, but I've not found any clear way to include 
first linearizion chart *.ti3 data to the next linearized 

chart *.ti3s - the first have direct device data, the last have linearized 
device data. So it's impossible to add just printed channel 

wedges to further main ti3 for colprof.
Another problem: I forgot to input -K *.cal parameter to printtarg and have 
print and read non-linearized chart. How can I join this 

chart with another one but linearized?

2. Quick RGB profiling
Printing and measuring PrintRGB 130-patch wedges (my A5 page have 391 patch

See attached archive.

The whole impression: With ArgyllCMS 1.1.0 RC1 I can to profile the difficult 
RGB printer by few of patches. With previous versions I 

had to print about 3000 patches for reasonable profile quality. The one of a 
great improvement I noticed is A-to-B table precision and 

smoothness for both RGB and CMYK modes. The curves are smooth, but the 
tolerance is higher! Now ArgyllCMS have no drawbacks. It's a 

complete and stable. I'll check the black generation difference (or not) 
between xicclu and colprof/collink soon.

I Hope the information about RGB profiling will be useful.
