I’ve just uploaded RMagick 2.3.0. This release adds two new methods to
the Image class. The encipher method produces an enciphered version of
an image. The decipher method produces a deciphered version of an
Several methods have been deprecated and replaced by new methods. The
Pixel#to_hsla and Pixel.from_hsla methods replace the deprecated
Pixel#to_HSL and Pixel.from_HSL. The Image#alpha() and Image#alpha?
methods replace the deprecated Image#alpha attribute. The Image#mask()
method replaces the Image#mask= method.
The Pixel#to_color method now accepts an optional argument to force the
color name to be rendered in hex format, i.e. #RRGGBB, even when the
color is a named color.
This release includes a fix for bug #18271, a bug in the RVG#width and
#height methods reported by Greg Jarman.
Taking a cue from RubyGems 1.1.0, I’m deprecating the use of RMagick
with Ruby 1.8.2 and 1.8.3. Although these releases are still supported
in 2.3.0, support will be removed in a future release.
RMagick 2.3.0 is available in a tarball compressed using LZMA
compression, which produces a noticeably smaller package. On *nix-like
systems you can (assuming you have 7zip installed) unpackage this file
with the command:
7z e RMagick-2.3.0.tar.lzma -so | tar xv
RMagick 2.3.0 is available as always at RubyForge:
http://rubyforge.org/projects/rmagick/. Please wait a few hours for the
mirrors to be updated.
RMagick 2.3.0 is an interface to the ImageMagick (www.imagemagick.org)
and image processing library. RMagick supports more than 100 image
formats, including GIF, JPEG, PNG. RMagick comes with comprehensive HTML
documentation, including 185 complete examples.
