RMagick 1.14.0

I’ve just uploaded RMagick 1.14.0 to RubyForge. There have been many,
changes since the previous release. Here’s the highlights:

o For those folks who are familiar with the ImageMagick/GraphicsMagick
commands and options, I’ve added a new page to the documenation
“Magick Command Options and Their Equivalent Methods”. This page is
side-by-side comparison of ImageMagick/GraphicsMagick options and
methods. If you have a favorite Magick shell script this table will
help you
convert it to Ruby.

o New support for CMYK->RGB conversion: the two new methods
add_profile and
delete_profile, and the black_point_compensation attribute. I’ve
cleaned up the existing profile!, iptc_profile, and color_profile

o Four new compositing methods: blend, displace, dissolve, and

o Use the new find_similar_region method to determine if an image
part (or all) of another image.

o Two new methods for reading IPTC profile data: get_iptc_dataset and

o Two new methods in the “adaptive” group: adaptive_blur and

And that’s not all. See the Change Log for details.
