<a href="http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=75029">CinePaint version 0.20</a> is a major release of the popular motion picture deep colour paint and retouching program.

This release is the latest Film Gimp (GTK) version of CinePaint. CinePaint developers continue to maintain this legacy architecture until the future Glasgow architecture is complete (in 2006). For info on Glasgow:

Version 0.20 Changes

 * Overall stability improved and many bugs fixed

 * Compiles on Linux/OSX/Solaris/BSD 32-bit and 64-bit - no Windows support until Glasgow

 * Softproofing - see below

 * GutenPrint CMS Printing - see below

 * ICC - see below

 * HDR - see below

Softproofing

 <a href="http://www.behrmann.name/cms/cinepaint/bildbearbeitung/cinepaint_ccorrection.html#Softproof">Softproofing</a> is introduced. This includes setting of a proofing profile and a switch to mark out of gamut colours.

 A image described by profile A (image profile) can be viewed as where seen 
or printed on a device described by profile B (proofing profile). The 
proofing profile can be selected below the image profile in the image 
menu. The toogle button for switching softproofing on and off, called Proof 
Display, is in the view menu. 
Speed is slow. But one could at least paint not colour correct.

 The proofing profile is used by the print plug-in as printer profile.

 Additional a gamut check can be switched on and off. The toggle botton, 
called Gamut Check Display, resides below the softproofing button. 
Gamutchecking marks out of proof gamut colour gray.
Speed is very slow. Only for checking useful.

 Both proofing and gamut checking are visual only checks. They dont affect 
the image data.

 A by default assigned proofing profile can be selected in the preferences.

GutenPrint CMS Printing 

 The <a href="http://www.gutenprint.org">Gutenprint</a> plug-in uses the proofing profile as default separation
target.

Colour Handling

 * User interface is more clear regarding colourmanaging. Many colour channel labels where adapted.

 * <a href="http://www.oyranos.org/wiki/index.php?title=DefaultProfile">Profile naming suggestions</a> by Chris Murphy where followed. visible in the preferences. It is documented here: <http://www.oyranos.org/wiki/index.php?title=DefaultProfile>
and on the OpenICC email list.

 * Visualisation of single colour channels, selectable in "Layers & Channels" dialog, is better.

 * OpenEXR <-> ICC colour space information is preserved during loading and saving this HDR image format.

HDR

 <a href="http://cinepaint.bigasterisk.com/HighDynamicRange">HighDynamicRange</a> (HDR) changes.

 * new HDR creation plug-in, see below.

 * The expose item is moved from &lt;imagemenu&gt;-->Color-->Expose Image to
&lt;imagemenu&gt;-->View-->Expose. It is now a per window setting, As well the values set in Expose are taken over into Gamma-Expose.

 * <a href="http://netpbm.sourceforge.net/doc/pfm.html">PortableFloatMaps</a> are supported for reading. (<a href="http://www.debevec.org/Probes/">examples</a>)

New Plug-ins 

 * <a href="http://people.freenet.de/hsbosny/HDR_Tutorial/HDR_Tutorial-en.html">Bracketing to HDR</a> - HDR creation from 8-bit images: by Hartmut Sbosny

 * statistic filter: minimum and median by Nicola Montecchiari

 * pnm complete rewrite for 8/16/32 bit raw reading: by Kai-Uwe Behrmann

Patches

 * 1213869 autoconf update to xwd plugin liquidphoto (Tom Hufmann)

 * 1275118 building plug-ins outside source tree liquidphoto

Frank Peters provided a <a href="http://cinepaint.bigasterisk.com/DCraw">collection of curves</a> from the internet.
Although these curves were originally intended for use with Nikon cameras,
they should be of general interesst to correct images from many digital sources.

BSD fixes, suggested by Mika Nystrom and partitial with bug 1164686 by Roland Illig where checked and merged in by Kai-Uwe Behrmann

ICC

 ICC Examin isn't in the 0.20 package because of some dependencies. It was as well late for integrating it into the 
autotools build system. Will be included in a future version.

 The "ICC Examin" application is downloadable from

  http://www.behrmann.name/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=32&Itemid=70

 ICC Examin itself now shows the pixels now coloured and adjusts the point size to the amount of pixels.

 The new ICC Watch plug-in allowes viewing image colours in the actual threedimensional CIE*Lab colour space. The Image and Proofing gamut can be included.

 The CinePaint plug-in allows now two resolutions. Calling <imagemenu>->Filters->ICC->Watch  the icc_examin plug-in transfers around 900 pixels to ICC Examin (as a colour list). Calling the new Watch2 it will write around 10000 colours.

O.20-1 Release Notes

 In tests 0.20-1 seems to become very stable. Tested on Mandrake 10.2, SuSE 9.2, Solaris 64-bit, [BSD] and osX 10.3.

 Bug Fixes

  * Expose and Gamma-Expose are syncronised and work on all bit depths.
CMYK copys are now possible.

  * a PFM bug for osX was fixed.

Notes about the last minor release 0.19-1

New Plug-ins

 * The print plug-in utilises Gutenprint for throughout 16-bit colourmanaged
printing. Note Gutenprint will be colour stable once it lefts behind beta
status. (This should be reached as of version 5.0.0rc1 for most inkjet
printers.)

 * The collect plug-in allows for selecting a number of images with the same
bit depth and building a layered image from them.

 * The new ICC Examin plug-in allowes visualisation of actual ICC profiles tags.
