image_science version 1.1.0 has been released!

sudo gem install image_science


ImageScience is a clean and happy Ruby library that generates thumbnails – and kicks the living crap out of RMagick. Oh, and it doesn’t leak memory like a sieve. :) For more information including build steps, see http://seattlerb.rubyforge.org/


1.1.0 / 2007-01-05

  • 3 major enhancements:
    • Added resize(width, height)
    • Added save(path)
    • All thumbnail and resize methods yield instead of saving directly.
  • 1 minor enhancement:
    • Will now try to use FreeImage from ports if /opt/local exists.
  • 2 bug fixes:
    • Fixed the linker issue on PPC.
    • Rakefile will now clean the image files created by bench.rb
