RMagick4J 0.3.7 Happy Birthmonth released.

RMagick4J 0.3.7 Happy Birthmonth has been released!

RMagick is a Ruby binding to ImageMagick and GraphicsMagick. RMagick4J implements ImageMagick functionality and the C portions of RMagick for use with JRuby.

Current stable version: 0.3.7
Project URL: http://kenai.com/projects/rmagick4j
Installation: gem install rmagick4j

New effects:

  • Charcoal
  • Edge
  • Implode
  • Negate
  • Normalize
  • Shade
  • Solarize
  • Wave

(I think that’s all that you need to use simple_captcha)

Major bugs resolved:

  • blur_image produced different images from RMagick.
  • Draw#push and Draw#pop didn’t work correctly in some cases.

Furthermore, RMagick4J does not depend on jhlabs library anymore (the gem has lost some weight!).

Thanks to:

  • Tim Hunter and the ImageMagick team (obviously).
  • JRuby community for its support.
  • Everyone that has reported a bug, ask for help in the #jruby channel or suggest a new library compatibility.

Please try out your applications with rmagick4j and help us provide feedback (even birthmonth cake!). It is our goal to make a fully-compatible implementation of RMagick4j in JRuby.

This is a very special release, cause March is my birthmonth.

Happy Birthmonth to:

  • SuperTaz
  • everyone else whose birthmonth is march
  • and me!
