libXcm-0.5.0 released

This is a major new release of libXcm, the X11 Color Management library. The name space of the core protocol changed with the new spec.

Changes Overview:

  • switch from net-color to X Color Management specification 0.4
  • support per region ICC profile
  • add API to parse capabilities from _ICC_COLOR_DESKTOP atom
  • use autotools
  • add XcmVersion.h file
  • build under osX and Win32 without X11 and Linux specific parts

The library communicates X colour regions between server and clients, which is described in the included X Color Management spec. EDID data can be fetched through i2c communication. EDID data can be parsed for identification and access to colorimetric
calibration data. libXcm helps in observing known X11 colour management events.

Known applications using libXcm:
The library is used by CompIcc a compiz plugin for full screen colour correction in hardware. libXcm allows the plugin to support multi monitor and multiple regions per window. The Oyranos Colour Management System uses the EDID parser. qcmsevents applet observes and displays colour management events in a nice GUI. Xcm contains three command line tools for EDID fetching, EDID parsing and event observing.
