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.
