 • New operations: max-rgb, pixelise, motion blur.

 • Fixed a bugs in matting-levin that made GEGL halt due to errors
   detected by babl sanity code, this made 0.1.4 be unusable if you had
   all dependendency when building.
 • build/test improvements.
 • Buffer:
     Added API to use external tile backends, allowing to plug-in alien
     tilebackends, for GIMP/Krita/OSM or similar.

 • GeglLookup, configurable floating point lookup tables for lazy computation.
 • Use GFileIOStream in GeglTileBackendFile.
 • Optimizations: in-place processing for point filters/composers,
     SIMD version of gegl:opacity, avoid making unneccesary sub-buffers,
53 54 55 56
     removed some  manual instrumentation from critical paths, improved
     speed of samplers.
 • Added xml composition/reference image based regression tests.
 • Added performance tracking framework.

 • Removed the GTK+ UI parts of the gegl binary and turned gegl into a
   pure command line tool (which can still visualize stuff with help
   help the SDL based display operation)
81 82 83 84 85 86 87 88 89 90 91 92 93 94 95
 • Consider {x=G_MININT/2, y=G_MININT/2, width=G_MAXINT, height=G_MAXINT}
   as the only valid region wichin processing may occur. Processing
   outside of this region is undefined behaviour.
 • Added support for storing allocation stack traces for GeglBuffers
   so that debuging buffer leaks becomes much easier
 • Made small changes and cleanups of the public API, e.g.
   • Removed gegl_node_adapt_child()
   • Made GeglConfig an explicit object
   • Removed most of the ifdeffed stuff to mask away internal
     structures
   • Added gegl_rectangle_infinite_plane() and
     gegl_rectangle_is_infinite_plane()
 • Added new sampler GeglSamplerSharp
 • Added format property go gegl:buffer-sink
 • Cleaned up and made gegl:introspect work again

   by default, the infrastructure allows extensions from applications with
   other curve types (smooth curves, spiro curves and others.).
