Hello list,

a new version of my graphical frontend for the Argyll CMS display calibration/characterization tools is available. In a nutshell:


* Spectrometer sensor calibration occuring accidentally on-screen,
  leading to erroneous subsequent readings, when doing calibration and
  following profiling measurements in one go (via "Calibrate &
  profile" button)
* Quirks when trying to delete settings, where files and directories
  could be left over instead of being moved to trash
* Quirks when updating calibrations/profiles
* Occasional profile install issues
* Issues when measuring ambient color temperature or light level via
  the "Measure" buttons in the main window


* Linux: Oyranos and GNOME Color Manager support. If available, they
  will be used to install profiles. GCM support is currently really
  rudimentary though, meaning dispcalGUI will just ask GCM to import
  the profile, after which you have to manually assign it to the
  correct display. This will be improved when GCM API functions or
  other means for the task become available.


* A terminal window is only shown when needed for direct keyboard
  interaction with the Argyll CMS tools. All output previously
  available through it can be had via the log window ("Tools" menu).
  This is a first step in preparation towards a complete GUI for all
  the interactive parts (ie. sensor calibration and display adjustment).
* Measurements show a progress bar
* Only generic creator information is added to profiles by default
  (overridable by configuration option, but there's currently no
  graphical interface for it). Settings are now stored differently
  (they are added to the embedded TI3 in the 'targ' tag).
* Linux: Unattended calibration/profiling no longer depends on
  xautomation or other external tools.

+ numerous other small changes/fixes. Please see the full changelog for details.

At this point I'd also like to thank Jari Jylhä and Marco N. for reporting some important bugs and additional testing under Linux and Mac OS 10.6.
