Changes for version 0.47_01

  • set the locale to "C" properly when testing ft1.x error messages
  • don't destroy image before creating it in error handling in bmp.c
  • extra concept index entries
  • Imager::Draw - align_string()'s valign parameter was invalid in the synopsis
  • start of external Imager API access:
    • rename headers to avoid conflicts:
      • image.h to imager.h
      • imagei.h to imageri.h
      • datatypes.h to imdatatypes.h
      • config.h to imconfig.h (created by Makefile.PL)
    • moved all public types defined in imager.h to imdatatypes.h
    • supply the PM parameter to WriteMakefile(), to install headers under Imager/include, and the Imager typemap in Imager/typemap. We scan the MANIFEST for files to add to PM.
    • add "i_" prefix on some functions useful as public at the C level.
    • moved the typedefs that support the typemap from Imager.xs to imperl.h
    • set the global callbacks hook in the Imager.xs BOOT section
    • API cleanup:
      • define i_tags_set(), i_tags_setn() - we might not allow multiple values for a tag in the future
      • i_copy() now returns a new image instead of doing horrible inplace things to an existing image
      • provide actual functions for all of the macros we define in imager.h so we can put them in the global callbacks structure
    • define global functions structure (imexttypes.h) and initialize it (imext.c)
    • add API include header with macros to setup the define and initialize the local callbacks pointer, and macros to call the API functions.
    • build Imager::APIRef from C sources, including updating the sources to include documentation for each API function.
    • convert dyntest and mandelbrot dynfilts into XS modules (too easy)
    • simple Imager::CountColor example
  • support Inline::C :
    • typemap changes to accept Imager or Imager::ImgRaw objects as image parameters
    • define Imager output type for trivial cases of returning an i_img as a full Imager object
    • Inline WITH hook to filter Imager XS types into types Inline::C can accept, supply appropriate headers and initialization.
    • test script t/t82inline.t
  • try to use XSLoader instead of DynaLoader (but fallback if necessary)
  • paste() can now paste a subset of the source image.
  • paste() now has better tests
  • paste() should now be faster for larger pastes
  • added sample files missing from MANIFEST
  • added t/t92samples.t to check samples/README against MANIFEST
  • added inline_replace_color.pl to samples
  • constify the Imager API
  • document Imager::Filter::Mandelbrot
  • convert dynfilt/flines.c to Imager::Filter::Flines
  • minor changes for older perl/ExtUtils::MM
  • deal with freetype-config --cflags returning the directories in the wrong order (Freetype 2.1.4 and earlier) Thanks to David Wheeler for his help in tracking this down.
  • reword and provide an example for non-proportionally scaling an image. Wording from Simon Cozens.
  • error messages when writing TIFF images were always 'Could not write to buffer', more useful messages are now reported.
  • error messages when writing PNM images were always 'unable to write pnm image', more useful messages are now reported.
  • convert t/t103raw.t to Test::More
  • reading a raw image no longer exits on a short read or read error, and returns an appropriate error message in $im->errstr
  • write failures when writing a raw image now return a useful message in $im->errstr
  • added typemap type names to types in Imager::API.
  • make skip when Inline::C not available less verbose
  • convert t/t07iolayer.t to Test::More
  • handle the possibility of strerror() returning NULL.
  • supply C<imager> parameter to filters so we can register filters implemented in perl.
  • document register_filter() and add test for it
  • add example to SYNOPSIS of samples/inline_replace_color.pl
  • minor POD fix in Imager::Color::Table
  • eliminate many -Wall warnings
  • update README to match unbuggy giflib
  • document index parameter of Imager::Font->new()
  • change faxable output to use a more fax natural PHOTOMETRIC_MINISWHITE, since T.4 normally works that way, and MINISBLACK confuses some readers.
  • clean up scale() method for readability
  • make scale() fail if an invalid type is supplied (previously documented as undefined behaviour)
  • add error handling tests for scale()
  • smarter warning removal
  • handle effects of byte ordering when testing tiff error messages
  • scale() can now expect an Image::Math::Constrain object as a scaling constraint via the constrain parameter.
  • added tests for the various ways we can specify scaling size
  • documented scale()'s scalefactor parameter
  • sick of $opts{scalefactor} in scale(), give it a scalar to call it's own.
  • check $Config{ldflags} and $Config{ccflags} for places to search for headers and libraries. This deals with the way the fink build of perl puts -L/sw/lib in ldflags rather than using loclibpth
  • eliminate some of the duplication of -I and -L options in LIBS and INC
  • Makefile.PL now uses strict.
  • the search for freetype1.x headers is now smarter
  • add tests for scaleX()/scaleY()
  • expand documentation of scaleX()/scaleY()
  • rotate()s back parameter now accepts color names like other methods
  • convert t/t69rubthru.t to Test::More
  • minor clean up of rubthrough() method
  • error handling tests for rubthrough()
  • expand Imager::Transformations:
    • document parameters more explicitly
    • document return values
    • add examples
  • eliminate sign warning from image.c
  • make TIFF detection stricter
  • more memory allocation integer overflow auditing
  • IM_DEBUG_MALLOC wasn't interacting well with the API
  • make win32.c const happy
  • make raw.c C89 compliant
  • added version/level to the API function table structure
  • fix/simplify META.yml generation - we now generate META.yml at Makefile.PL time, since trying to work with EU::MM to generate a custom META.yml was a waste.
  • bump to 0.47_01
