[Gegl-developer] GEGL-0.2.0 babl-0.1.10

GEGL (Generic Graphics Library) is a graph based image processing framework.

GEGL provides a graph based API and framework to do demand driven, cached, non
destructive image editing of sparse storage of larger than RAM images
- using CPU or GPU
processing. Through babl it provides support for a wide, and extendable, range
of color models and pixel storage formats for input and output.

To build gegl-0.2.0 you will also need babl-0.1.10

Changes in this release:

 • OpenCL support (experimental, enable by setting the environment
variable GEGL_USE_OPENCL to the value yes)
 • build improvements.
 • High level API to apply ops directly to buffers with arguments.
 • Final bits of translation infrastructure.
 • Invalidate regions when disconnecting input pads.

 • Operations:
   • New operation: global-matting
   • Allow transform core to do perspective transforms.
   • Added string based key/value pairs to operations.
   • Added arguments for dealing with scaled down preview rendering.
 • Added human interaction ranges and non-linear mapping to properties.

 • Buffer:
   • Removal of broken lanczos sampler.
   • Add gegl_buffer_set_color and gegl_buffer_set_pattern
   • Added ability to drop cached tiles.
   • Added API for handling abyss policy (not implemented yet)
   • Avoid iterating global tile cache when flushing/destroying buffers
     that have no tiles in the cache.
