Colord 1.0 Released To Manage Open-Source Colors
Colord 1.0.0 has been released as the system service/daemon that makes it easy and straight forward for managing/installing/creating color profiles for managing colors on Linux input and output devices.
Richard Hughes announced Colord 1.0.0 on Monday morning and says, "we did it at last!" Colord and Richard's color management work has been a project for long time and slowly everything is coming together. Colord is a daemon responsible for mapping devices to color profiles. It was just a few days ago as well that Richard's color management work for Wayland/Weston was merged.
Some new features to the Colord 1.0.0 release is a config option for supporting monitors with identical EDID values, simple BGRA32/CMY32 pixel formats, a basic colord.conf manpage, and many bug-fixes.
More details on Colord 1.0.0 can be gathered from the mailing list announcement. General information and use-case details on Colord can be found from its FreeDesktop.org project page.
