GEGL-0.3.22 2017-11-12


Refactored graph traversals to use topological sorts.

Completely avoid loading plug-ins .so with -gpl3 in filename unless the application using GEGL explicitly has enabled GPL3 operations.

Replace custom property redirection for meta-ops with GBinding.

Reduced temporary buffer allocation overhead in mipmap downscaling.

Do divide and conquer on higher level in point filter/composer op base-classes.

Migrated from intltool to GNU gettext


Tweak nohalo and lohalo samplers to be orders of magnitude faster for scale factors > ~3% while also removing possible hangs.


Improved threading awareness/capabilities of gegl:copy-buffer, gegl:wind, gegl:color-enhance, gegl:photocopy, gegl:matting-levin, npd, contrast-curve, noise-spread, noise-pick, noise- slur, transform ops.

Use of more modern GLib APIs like g_clear_ and make use of the fact that g_free is already NULL safe.

Fixed grayscale behavior of gegl:noise-hurl. OpenCL vs CPU consistency fix for gegl:threshold, and optimization of gegl:wavelet-blur by decomposing to two 1d passes. median-blur, perform binning in a more perceptual space. hue-chroma: added OpenCL support threshold: make opencl match cpu wavelet-blur: decompose for performance illusion: performance improvement permitting partial result computation grey: add fast path for alpha-less input buffers.

GEGL-0.3.20 2017-08-15


Increased max thread limit to 64 threads, and improvements to both buffer and progress reporting thread safety, point sized buffers are handled better and COW-tiles are now lock free. Serialization and parsing has been made more robust.


Improved property meta data for many opertions, two new operations gegl:spiral and gegl:mix.

ff-load/ff-save: make audio frame handling more generic.

c2g, avoid possible infinite loop on transparent areas.

Fixes to gaussian-blur and ops core for multi-threaded blurring.

New binary

gcut, a video editing engine for GEGL has also been added to the repo. It permits reusing image filters written as GEGL operations for video, and basic motion graphics. The engines data model is currently fully functional for text-file based input and offline rendering, an experimental user interface for this video editing system is also currently being worked on.

GEGL-0.3.16 2017-05-15


Improvements to gegl-chain serialization and documentation. Remove remnants of deprecated gegl-graph syntactic sugar for C


Avoid choking on 0x0 rectangles, handle implicit mipmap generation for 15bpc and half precision float pixelformate.


Many operations have gotten an additiona meta-ui description layer sprinkled on top. And The C source code of the operations is no longer kept as a meta-data key on the binary, with a shrink of ~10mb it might even impact startup time.

New operations: newsprint/spachrotyzer. Moved out of workshop: unpremultiply New in workshop: spiral drop-shadow: improve edge mode of blur, to work on tiny radiuses. transform-ops: ported to the new chanting system ff-load: readjust frame accurate mp4 seeking for newer ffmpeg. file-loading ops: stop some crashes happening due to invalid/lacking properties. npy-save, jpg-save, png-save: port to GIO. raw-load: rotate bounding box based on image meta-data.


Improve testing by using hashes of autogenerated reference images for regression testing, thus causing fewer manual steps to add an op with its tests. Some XML based tests removed as they were fully superceded by new automated tests.


Replaced dynamic client side js content with static operation gallery, incremental improvements to website content. This includes updates to the meta-data in the .C files of operations.
