Version 3.0.2 (25/Aug/2004)

- New: utility functions imPaletteHighContrast, imImageLoadImage and imImageLoadBitmap.
- New: operation imProcessNormalizeComponents.
- Changed: name imProcessGaussianConvolve to imProcessGaussianConvolveRep. New: operation imProcessGaussianConvolve that uses a float kernel. New: utility functions imGaussianStdDev2Repetitions and imGaussianStdDev2KernelSize.
- Changed: name imProcessDiffOfGaussianConvolve to imProcessDiffOfGaussianConvolveRep. New: operation imProcessDiffOfGaussianConvolve that uses a float kernel.
- Changed: IM_GAMUT_BRIGHTCONT parameters to the interval [-100,100]. Fixed: IM_GAMUT_EXPAND and IM_GAMUT_BRIGHTCONT normalization.
- Changed: logical operations, flag IM_BIT_NOT replaced by operation imProcessBitwiseNot.
- Changed: imImageSetAttribute count can be -1 for zero terminated data.
- Fixed: operations imProcessBitwiseNot and imProcessNegative for IM_BINARY images.
- Fixed: the color_mode_flags parameter interpretation by imFileReadImageData.
- Fixed: imProcessEqualizeHistogram and imProcessExpandHistogram for color images.
- Fixed: imProcessMultipleStdDev.
- Fixed: imProcessDifusionErrThreshold for IM_GRAY images.
- Fixed: "KRN" format, internal format is topdown.
- Fixed: initialization of TGA image_count.

Version 3.0.1 (22/Apr/2004)

- Improved compatibility with the old version, it was missing the load of Map images with imLoadRGB.
- The FFTW code was from version 2.1.3, not from 2.1.5 as suposed, it was updated. The FFT functions were condensed in only one file with an "#ifdef" for FFTW version 2 and 3. The FFT functions also were renamed to remove the "W" that belongs only to the FFTW library.
- The SetAttribute functions now accept NULL in data to remove the attribute.
- New: imProcessCrossCorrelation and imProcessAutoCorrelation functions.
- The imCalcGrayHistogram function now can calculate the histogram of IM_MAP and IM_BINARY images.

Version 3.0 (April 2004)

A major rewrite of the library. Everything changed, check the manual, but backward compatibility is kept for old applications. A new API more flexible, new formats, support for attributes and video, image capture and image processing. New: color spaces and data types. The library now got a professional look for scientific applications.

Version 2.6 (May 2002)

Correction of bug in resolution reading and writing for format JPEG.

Version 2.5 (August 2001)

Correction of bug in the default GIF compression. Two new callbacks: transparency color index for GIF files and image description for TIFF files.

Version 2.4 (February 2000)

Change in the treatment of LZW compression in formats TIFF and GIF. Now compression is no longer the default.

Version 2.3 (June 1998)

Close function of the access driver for files in memory corrected. JPEG library updated to 6b. Correction of a problem with the reading of some JPEG files.

Version 2.2 (November 1997)

The definition of the counter callback was changed to inform, in a parameter, the type of access being performed, either reading or writing. Type imCallback defined to make type casting easier when using function imRegisterCallback. Correction of a problem with the makefile in UNIX, which was generating link errors in some platforms.

Version 2.1 (October 1997)

Correction of a problem with internal memory liberation when reading Map images in TIFF files. Conversion RGB to Map is now made using the algorithm implemented by LibJPEG. The algorithm of imResize was improved for cases in which the size is being reduced instead of increased. Correction of a problem with functions imImageInfo and imFileFormat: when the provided file was not in a format recognized by IM, there was an error in format TGA which caused these functions to access an invalid memory area.

Version 2.0 (September 1997)

The library was virtually rewritten to implement a new structure which allowed greater flexibility, simplifying the addition of new formats. Formats TGA, PCL, JPEG and LED were added to the list of supported formats, and new functions were added: imMap2RGB, imRGB2Gray, imMap2Gray, imResize, imStretch.

Version 1.1 (June 1996)

Small corrections to increase portability. Changes in return codes. Identifiers were created to return codes and predefined parameters. Online manual concluded.

Version 1.0 (October 1995)
