New point versions. Hold for a while due to too many upstream releases.

This was originally for both IM6 and IM7.

Looks like The ABI changed between 7.0.4-5 and 7.0.4-6, and current git has reverted the change... See https://abi-laboratory.pro/tracker/timeline/imagemagick/ Not sure we want to put 7.0.4-7 (or -6) in the book. Ah, looks like the current (and only downloadable 7.0.4) version is 7.0.4-8. For how long?

comment:7 by bdubbs@…, 4 years ago

Use your judgement on what version to use. They update quite often so no matter what one we use, it will change between freeze and stable releases.

comment:8 by Pierre Labastie, 4 years ago

Problem is they remove versions fairly quickly! Git has been bumped to 7.0.4-9, so I guess 7.0.4-8 might disappear soon...

comment:9 by Pierre Labastie, 4 years ago

Ah. They have a github mirror, where releases are more permanent...

And notice the note about the Oregon State University repo.

Thanks, had forgotten to check that all was already in the book. Updated to 6.9.7-8 and 7.0.4-8 at r18302. Keeping open and releasing ownership.

AFAICS, Oregon state only has 7.0.4-3. At github the download is .tar.gz with different size and md5sum. Unless Bruce has already downloaded 7.0.4-8, I think we need to change those details for 8.0.

comment:14 by Pierre Labastie, 4 years ago

Not sure how Oregon state university works. I've seen both "-8" files in the list of "Files in BLFS svn missing on anduin", so I guess they should make their way to osuosl soon. Using github is a pain, since wget downloads files with names vx.x.x, so that we'd have to instruct the user to use a special wget instruction, not much better than suggesting to take it from Oregon state.

comment:15 by bdubbs@…, 4 years ago

Two things:

I've asked Pierre to send me the -8 version of IM7 so I can put it on OSU. I was able to get the IM6 version.

We list upstream's original location so users can go there for the "official" developers's site if desired.

Current .xz are at https://www.imagemagick.org/download/ without a releases directory. github for 6 called it ImageMagick6- but not only as it .tar.gz, it was an earlier version.

The patch for 6 applies to 6.9.11-27 as well as to 6.9.10, so I'll upload it in the hope someone can fix emacs (which is the only package that uses it). Will create new ticket for emacs.

comment:25 by ken@…, 12 months ago

On second thoughts, either we should revert to emacs-26.3 (if imagemagick in emacs is important), or we should drop imagemagick-6. See #13932

I won't update to 6.9.11-27 for the moment.

comment:26 by ken@…, 12 months ago

Updated to 7.0.10-27 in r23531.
