CMYKTool 0.1.4 Released

2010-07-24


I'm pleased to announce a new release of CMYKTool, featuring a few bug fixes, better international support on Windows, and - the big news for this release - support for black generation curves, using ArgyllCMS's DeviceLink capability.

 

DownloadSource code - .tar.gz

DownloadWindows Binary - .zip

Please note: the Windows build requires an existing GTK+ installation - the easiest way to get that is to install GIMP.


Notable changes this time include:

  • Added Spanish translation, thanks to Guillermo Espertino.
  • Added a list to the preset editor which allows them to be recalled and deleted.
  • Added device link generation capability (using Argyll's collink utility), and an editor to manage them.
  • Added menus - including Select All / None, and menu items to bring up the preset and device link editors.
  • Added About dialog.
  • Many fixes to filename handling on Win32 - should now be able to handle unicode characters in filenames.
  • Translation should now work on Win32.
  • Updated French translation, thanks to Cedric Gémy.
  • Updated Russian translation, thanks to Alexandre Prokoudine.

Future plans include:

  • Support for "duotone" images, where an image is converted to use black and a single spot colour.  (Similar to the Separate plugin's duotone feature, but with the ability to specity the spot colour.)
  • The ability to import PostScript and PDF (by means of GhostScript.  (There is already rudimentary support for this if GhostScript is in the path).
  • The ability to make use of Argyll to create a DeviceLink profile specifically for transforming a particular image (or set of images).
