GraphicsMagick Ubuntu PPA

After nine months of hard work, the developer finally announced the GraphicsMagick 1.3.19. This release brings dozens of bugfixes, several feature and performance improvements, and also below new features:

  • JPEG: Add support for writing ‘XMP’ profile.
  • PNM: As a simple non-standard extension to the standard PNM and PAM formats, support writing and reading 32-bit sample depth. Writing such files is only supported by the Q32 build although they may be read by any build.
