With the last finishing touches completed, i'm excited to be able to
announce that the review of Generic Image Library (GIL)
will begin October 5, in three days.

Please download the library at:>

This site has a great deal of background information about the
library, so be shur to check it out. A quick summary follows:

The Generic Image Library (GIL) is a C++ library that abstracts
the image representation from operations on images. It allows
for writing the image processing algorithm once and having it
work for images in any color space, channel depth and pixel
organization, or even synthetic images, without compromising
the performance. GIL has an extension mechanism that allows
for adding extra functionality. Two extensions are currently
provided – one for image I/O and one for handling images
whose properties are specified at run-time.
