I've just uploaded RMagick 1.15.0 to RubyForge. There have been many changes since the previous release. Here are the highlights: o Added the fx method to the ImageList class. This is an interface to the -fx option to ImageMagick's convert and mogrify commands. See http://redux.imagemagick.org/script/fx.php for more information about fx. o Added the wet_floor method to the Image class. This method creates a "wet floor" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wet_floor) reflection of an image. o Added the polaroid method to the Image class. This special effect method makes your image look like an old Polaroid photograph. This built in method was inspired by the RMagick tutorial "The Polaroid Effect" (http://rmagick.rubyforge.org/Polaroid/polaroid.html) o Fixed a half-dozen bugs. Thanks to all the folks who reported them! Their names are recorded in the Change Log. And that's not all. See the Change Log for details. RMagick is available as always from RubyForge: http://rubyforge.org/projects/rmagick/. The RMagick home page is http://rmagick.rubyforge.org. The RMagick installation FAQ is at http://rmagick.rubyforge.org/install-faq.html. (This release is not yet available for MS Windows. Watch here for an announcement.) RMagick is an interface to the ImageMagick (www.imagemagick.org) and GraphicsMagick (www.graphicsmagick.org) image processing libraries. RMagick supports more than 90 image formats, including GIF, JPEG, and PNG. RMagick comes with comprehensive HTML documentation.

I'd like to upgrade my RMagick to 1.15.0 but I'm afraid that it'll introduce dependencies on other packages. I'm currently running ubuntu Dapper Drake. Does anyone know if 1.15.0 requires the latest ImageMagick software? Thanks.

ImageMagick changed considerably at its 6.2.0 release.
