I have released ImageMagick and made sure the current versions of 
Freetype 2, PNG Library, libwmf and ImageMagick are now in sync with 
what is on my systems. The main target has been a new ImageMagick 

NB: ImageMagick now requires a PNG Library install (for the shared 
libraries) to function. It does not support WMF (probably this was lost 
during the IM5 to IM6 upgrade a while back), but the i-Package still 
requires the availability because I hope to get that working again 
together with the ImageMagick folks.

PNG Library has lost intel for the time being until I have my system 
setup such that I can support ot for all i-Packages.


PS. I am experiencing big problems with the system I use for OS X 
10.2/10.3 compatible compilation (iBook). I have recently had it 
upgraded with a bigger HD but it has become pretty unreliable (not 
booting in 10.2, not booting from CD (DVD is fine), etc.). This means I 
will probably lose it for a while and will thus be unable to maintain 
my software, unless I drop 10.2 support. I will be dropping 10.2 
support as soon as I know that the current set of tools is stable and 
workable. Hence, I need all of you people to use what is there now and 
report any problems while I can still fix them. (I have been able to 
use a workaround tonight, start up the iBook in target Disk Mode and 
boot my server off the 10.2 partition, but that takes the server off 
line and other people depend on it for mail so i cannot do that much).
