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.
What is G’MIC?
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).
