This directory contains beta distributions of GraphicsMagick. Beta distributions are release-level packages which are distributed to a large user base in order to obtain any comments or bug reports prior to the final release. The packages are considered to be stable and reliable software, and it is highly unlikely that any interfaces will change in the final release.
These beta distributions are based on the "HEAD" branch in GraphicsMagick CVS.
File transfer rates from ftp.graphicsmagick.org are limited to 10KB per second. Estimated download times shown assume that the client is able to download at the full rate. Files may also be available for download from SourceForge, which offers much faster transfer rates.
The following files are available:
X.X is the release version target (e.g. 1.1). BetaN is the beta release level (e.g. Beta3)
Base source archive (bz2, gz, and zip formats)
Linux Red Hat Package Manager (RPM) Source Package. Use browser “save link as” since this is not a RealAudio file!
Windows source archive (zip format). Includes integrated source for all 3rd-party libraries ("delegates"). The zip archive is built from a "live" anonymous CVS checkout so it can be used as a faster way to get started with CVS.
Windows Dynamic-Multithread (DLL-based) install package with utilities, PerlMagick, the ImageMagickObject COM object, DLLs, and web pages. The supported quantum depth is indicated by the Q value. Q8 is suitable for common image processing, but Q16 is recommended when processing deep color or gray images, or using the color management system (CMS).
Windows Static-Multithread package including the utilities (gm.exe, gmdisplay.exe, and MagickCMD.exe), the ImageMagickObject COM object, and the GraphicsMagick web pages. The supported quantum depth is indicated by the Q value. Q8 is suitable for common image processing, but Q16 is recommended when processing deep color or gray images, or using the color management system (CMS).
