Subject: ANNOUNCE : ImageMagick 2.0 binaries available !
Date: Thu, 19 Nov 1992 03:01:27 GMT

Sorry guys, I forgot to do this already (I think - memory's short at the
moment, I've got a lot on my mind 8-)

Erm, I've uploaded ImageMagick 2.0 binaries to sunsite & tsx-11 the other
day...

THEY NEED ROB HOOFT'S REALLY EXCELLENT AND GROOVY JUMPTABLE JPEG & TIFF
LIBRARIES !!!!!!!!

Available at sunsite in the pub/Linux/Incoming/jumptables
dir (libgr01.TZ)

The display program doesn't have quite as pretty a front end as xv,
but the convert prg is handy for those who don't want to look at the
pictures, just convert them...

I haven't tried the animation programs, but display and convert are fine...

Enjoy immensely !

Cos !

OK, for those who are interested, I have uploaded the diffs for 
the latest Image Magick 2.1 to Sunsite, you can get the original source
from export.lcs.mit.edu in /contrib and compile after you patch
it with my diffs.  You'll need the jump libs I uploaded, because it
implements JPEG, TIFF formats.  I have also uploaded the latest jump
libs for TIFF, URT and JPEG.  The location of the files are as follows:

Imagick Magick 2.1 diffs: /pub/Linux/Incoming/diff-imgik21.Z

JPEG lib version 3c : /pub/Linux/Incoming/libjpeg.a.Z

TIFF lib version 3.2b : /pub/Linux/Incoming/libtiff.a.Z

URT lib version 3.1b : /pub/Linux/Incoming/liburt.a.Z

Enjoy!  If you have any questions, mail me or post
Bruce

I think there is a mistake somewhere. If those are jumplibs they are 
not useful to anyone, because jumplibs need a shared image in /lib/
to run, and that doesn't seem to be included. I think these are just
normal libraries, containing all the code.

Anyone needing a graphics jumplib (with the disk-space-saving-effect)
could as well check my package on sunsite.unc.edu
/pub/Linux/Incoming/jumptables/libgr01.TZ. it also contains the four
p[pgbn]m libs. And there's more jumptables in the same directory (f2c
and readline), and some packages using them.

Thoroughly seconded.  Shared libraries are supposed to save disk
space, and they won't do so if everybody releases their own versions
of those libraries.  I have already got those of Rob Hooft's jumplibs
which I need; they were, I think, the first graphics jumplibs
available so it probably makes as much sense for them to become
standard as anybody else's.

Maybe this should be made official; should they be put into
/pub/OS/Linux/lib on funet, perhaps?  Come to think of it, is there
anybody, anywhere, looking after standard libs (apart from HJ's libc,
of course)?

Cheers,
 Stephen Tweedie.
