The IMAGE team of the GREYC laboratory (UMR CNRS 6072, Caen, France) is pleased to announce the release of a new 2.2 version of G’MIC, its open-source, generic, and extensible framework for image processing. As we already did in the past, we take this opportunity to look at the latest notable features added since the previous major release (2.0, last June).
This is becoming a sort of tradition for me to post something giving thanks around this holiday. I think it’s because this community has become such a large part of my life (even if I don’t have nearly as much time to spend on it as I’d like). Also, I think it helps to remind ourselves once in a while of the good things that happen to us. So in that spirit…
Our friendly neighborhood @LebedevRI pointed out to me a little while ago that we had reached some nice milestones for https://raw.pixls.us. Not surprisingly I had spaced out and not written anything about it (or really any sort of social posts). Bad Pat!
The IMAGE team of the research laboratory GREYC in Caen/France is pleased to announce the release of a new major version (numbered 2.0) of its project G’MIC: a generic, extensible, and open source framework for image processing. Here, we present the main advances made in the software since our last article. The new features presented here include the work carried out over the last twelve months (versions 2.0.0 and 1.7.x, for _x_ varying from _2_ to _9_).
I was idling in our IRC chat room earlier when @Morgan_Hardwood wished us all a “Happy Discuss Anniversary”. Wouldn’t you know it, another year slipped right by! (Surely there’s no way it could already be a year since the last birthday post? Where does the time go?)
We’ve had a bunch of neat things happen in the community over the past year! Let’s look at some of the highlights.
One of the goals we have here at PIXLS.US is to help Free Software projects however we can, and one of those ways is to focus on things that we can do well that might help make things easier for the projects. It may not be much fun for project developers to deal with websites or community outreach necessarily. This is something I think we can help with, and recently we had an opportunity to do just that with the awesome folks over at the photo management project digiKam.
This years Libre Graphics Meeting (2017) is going to be held in the lovely city seen above, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil! This is an important meeting for so many people in the Free/Libre art community as it’s one of the only times they have an opportunity to meet face to face.
So in the spirit of camaraderie, I have a request…
