We should try plugging this into OpenJDK 7 to
test it out before it goes final.

Dear Little CMS community:

After years of development, lcms 2.0 is now
completed  and ready to be beta tested.

This means the tarball does contain all code
and documentation that will be in the final
lcms 2.0 release.

But of course, since there are significant
changes in the code, and despite it has been
carefully tested, bugs may arise.

So, now your feedback is important. If you
find bugs, glitches, inconsistencies, etc:
Please let me know. For the 2.x series I will
try to maintain a list of contributors and give
credits to helpful people. Unfortunately that's
all I can do in this non-profit project!

Here is the beta 1 tarball:


I have been forced to drop some features to
meet schedule, for example Delphi, python
and Mat Lab  wrappers. Hopefully, these will
be recovered in 2.1 Another missing feature
is pthreads. lcms 2.0 does support multi
threading but I would like to better this
part a little bit.

Remaining features are working. lcms 2 can
coexist with lcms 1 without problems. The
utilities have been renamed to avoid clashes and
the whole package name has been changed to
lcms2 (hence the tarball name)

There will be 3 or 4 beta releases on depending
on the severity of issues found. My initial
intention is to release betas monthly.

I would like to thank you again for all your support.
Without it, lcms 2.0 would have never been possible!

Best regards
