Fedora Update Notification
2010-06-21 11:48:50

Name        : babl
Product     : Fedora 13
Version     : 0.1.2
Release     : 4.fc13
URL         : http://www.gegl.org/babl/
Summary     : A dynamic, any to any, pixel format conversion library
Description :
Babl is a dynamic, any to any, pixel format conversion library. It
provides conversions between the myriad of buffer types images can be
stored in. Babl doesn't only help with existing pixel formats, but also
facilitates creation of new and uncommon ones.

Update Information:

This update removes the barely used gimp-plugin-mgr script in both gimp and
xsane. The xsane-gimp package places the plugin binary now directly into the
GIMP plugin directory instead of symlinking it. If you have both "gimp" and
"xsane-gimp" installed, please test updating to the contained versions of gimp
and xsane-gimp thoroughly (e.g. use command line tools instead of the PackageKit
GUI to see eventual error messages) and verify their consistency after updating
with "rpm -V gimp xsane-gimp".    Overview of Changes from GIMP 2.6.8 to GIMP
