RMagick 2.0.0 for Windows

I’ve just uploaded a pre-compiled-for-Windows RMagick 2.0.0 gem to
RubyForge. The gem is bundled with ImageMagick 6.3.7-8. Look for
RMagick-2.0.0-ImageMagick-6.3.7-8-Q8.zip in the rmagick-win32 project of
the RMagick download page [http://rubyforge.org/frs/?group_id=12].
Remember it takes a few hours for the mirrors to catch up. This makes 4
RMagick releases in 4 days so I’m going to stop for a while.

You can read about RMagick 2 here:
http://rmagick.rubyforge.org/rmagick2.

How do you know if you should upgrade to RMagick 2? You should use
RMagick 2 instead of RMagick 1 if

  1. You want to use RMagick with Ruby 1.9.0. RMagick 2 works with 1.9.0.
    RMagick 1 does not.

  2. You want to use new ImageMagick functionality. RMagick 1 maintenance
    is limited to bug fixes. New ImageMagick functionality will appear in
    RMagick 2.

  3. You want to have better control over RMagick’s memory usage. RMagick
    2 has two new methods - Image#destroy! and Magick.trace_proc= - that can
    help you manage the memory used by images in your programs.

You should stick with RMagick 1 if

  1. You want to use older releases of ImageMagick or Ruby.

  2. You want to use RMagick with GraphicsMagick.

RMagick 2 has different prerequisites and is very slightly incompatible
with RMagick 1, so be sure to read the web page before you download it.

The detailed ChangeLog is here

Please report bugs on RMagick’s bug tracker
[http://rubyforge.org/tracker/?group_id=12]. You can ask questions in
the RMagick Help Forum [http://rubyforge.org/forum/?group_id=12], or
contact me directly at rmagick AT rubyforge DOT org.

RMagick 2 is an interface to the ImageMagick (www.imagemagick.org) image
processing library. RMagick supports more than 90 image formats,
including GIF, JPEG, and PNG, and comes with comprehensive HTML
documentation.
