I’m happy to announce the release of a new version (numbered 1.7.7) of the G’MIC image processing framework. As always, I encourage upgrading to this new version as soon as possible . Particularly this time, as we found (and fixed) two critical bugs in colorspace conversions
RGB->HSI in the previous stable version.
This version is backward-compatible with the previous one (1.7.6), meaning that all new filters added in this version have been also backported for users of the previous stable version.
G’MIC is a full-featured open-source framework for image processing. It provides several different user interfaces to convert/manipulate/filter/visualize generic image datasets, ranging from 1d scalar signals to 3d+t sequences of multi-spectral volumetric images, thus including 2d color images.

The following is the full Changelog of the version 1.7.7, as compared to the previous stable version 1.7.6.
[stdlib] New command
-rolling_guidanceimplements the rolling guidance filter (ECCV’2014 paper from Qi Zhang-etal.).
[gimp] New filter Artistic / Sharp abstract creates image abstractions using the rolling guidance filter.
- [gimp] New filter Details / Sharpen [texture] implements a new image sharpening algorithm based on the rolling guidance filter to separate and enhance texture part of an image.
[web] Default downloads of pre-compiled binaries now links to the pre-release of the incoming version (not the case for the source
.tar.gzpackage). G’MIC is considered as stable enough now to propose the cutting-edge development versions to the users by default.
[core] Fixed two critical bugs in color conversion commands
-rgb2hsi. These commands were not working correctly in version 1.7.6.
[core] Fixed small bug in command
-bilateral: wrong result was returned when
std_variation_r==0and ‘std_variation_s!=0’ (or if guide was a constant image).
