CMYKTool 0.1.5-pre1 and DuoToner


Apologies for the lack of updates - time pressures continue to be a problem for me, which is why I'm pushing out this pre-release.  Apologies to the translators for not giving them any warning of this release - I'll try and push out a -pre2 in the near future with any updated translations I receive.

The big news this time is that the CMYKTool package now includes a second utility, DuoToner - this is something I needed in a hurry at work so it's rough around the edges, but it does what I need it to.  CMYKTool also has a number of improvements - probably not enough to warrant a full release, but since it's likely to be some weeks before i can spend any more time on it, I'm hurrying out this pre-release while I can!

Please note: the Windows build requires an existing GTK+ installation - since the newest version of GIMP uses a newer and incompatible GTK Installation, Inkscape is now the GTK-donor of choice!  Gimp up to 2.6 will still work, however.

Notable changes this time include:

  • Added Brazilian Portuguese translation, thanks to Banto Palmarino
  • It's no longer possible to select a DeviceLink before it's finished generating.  (Previously you could select it, but it wouldn't actually be used!)
  • Now renders icons showing the input and output colorspaces of DeviceLinks
  • Added global activity bar showing when there are jobs queued or pending - cycles through the job names.
  • Windows build now correctly embeds profiles when exporting.  (Embedded profile handling made much neater in general.)
  • SearchPaths for colour profiles are now scanned recursively.
  • Devicelinks now have the chosen description embedded within them.
  • Can now export a generated Devicelink for use in other programs.

Future plans include:

  • The ability to import PostScript and PDF (by means of GhostScript.  (There is already rudimentary support for this if GhostScript is in the path).
  • The ability to make use of Argyll to create a DeviceLink profile specifically for transforming a particular image (or set of images).
