GEGL 0.0.22
GEGL (Generic Graphics Library) is a graph based image processing framework.

GEGL provides infrastructure to do demand driven, cached, non destructive image
editing of larger than RAM rasters. Through babl it provides support for a wide
range of color models and pixel storage formats for input and output.

This is a release introduces a feature freeze the current feature set
perhaps with some
features will become the basis for the first 0.1.0 release, the APIs
which will receive
some changes (removal of feature) is GeglPath, apart from that most of
the current API
seems to be sufficient for a quite wide range of uses. After the
introduction of
gegl_node_add_child and gegl_node_remove_child calls
gegl_node_adopt_child call might be removed. Please note that
documentation of unstable APIs is not complete.

Happy new year.

   • gegl:src-in - deal correctly with extens.
   • gegl:path - new op covering the stroke/fill needs of SVG.
