Details

Updated netpbm packages that resolve several issues and provide
enhancements are now available.

The netpbm package contains a library of functions which support programs
for handling various graphics file formats, including .pbm (portable
bitmaps), .pgm (portable graymaps), .pnm (portable anymaps), .ppm (portable
pixmaps) and others.

These updated netpbm packages upgrade netpbm to version 10.35.58, which
provides many bug fixes and enhancements over the previous version.
Notably, a few new utilities are included in this upgraded version,
including: jbigtopnm, pcdovtoppm and pnmtojbig.

In addition, the following bugs have been fixed in this netpbm update:

* several utilities shipped with netpbm may have crashed while processing
image files. With this update, this issue has been resolved.

* several utilities shipped with netpbm did not accept files from standard
input even though this method was in accordance with the documentation.
With this update, this issue has been resolved.

* the documentation of a number of utilities provided by netpbm did not
agree with the actual usage, described parameters which are not present,
and contained various typos and errors. The documentation of the netpbm
utilities is much improved with this update, and the specific problems
listed have been corrected.

All users of netpbm are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
resolve these issues.
