RMagick 2.7.1 released


RMagick 2.7.1 adds a new exception class called
Magick::FatalImageMagickException. RMagick raises this exception when
ImageMagick reports a fatal (unrecoverable) error.

I added support for a special “user” option that adds a user-specified
string to the image description returned by Image#inspect. This string
helps differentiate between images and is useful when debugging with
Magick.trace_proc. See the documentation for Magick::Image::Info#[] for
an example.

This release also fixes a bug in Magick.fonts that occurs only on 64-bit
systems (patch by James Le Cuirot), and adds the Image#total_ink_density
attribute reader (feature request by F. Behrens).

RMagick 2.7.1 is available as always at RubyForge:
http://rubyforge.org/projects/rmagick/. This release is also available
as a pre-compiled binary for MS Windows systems. Please wait a few hours
for the mirrors to be updated.

RMagick 2.7.1 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.
