LibRaw 0.11.0 Released

LibRaw 0.11.0-Release is available for download and use. It is also updated on GitHub repository.

The most significant changes since 0.10-Release are:

  • Processing pipeline has changed: black level is always subtracted on prostprocessing stage or by special subtract_black() call.
  • Cropping on postprocessing stage implemented.
  • New API call for clearing memory allocated by make_mem_image() call.
  • New iostreams based I/O layer, much faster on some systems (esp. Win32 and Linux).

LibRaw Repository on GitHub

The copy of LibRaw internal SVN repository has been created on GitHub. All changes made to the master branch through Git will be incorporated into the main Subversion repo.
