InkRaster Revision History
This page contains the summary of InkRaster release dates, versions and changes/fixes made for that release.
Version 1.18 10/16/2019Software Updates
Fixed an issue when the calculated width of the image does not match the padded image width. In previous releases, we modify the width in the header to match the calculated unpadded width without modifying the image data. This works if the difference is less than 8 pixels. If there are 8 or more pixels difference, viewers will not be able to show the correct image. In this release, we modify the image data when needed according to the calculated image width.
Version 1.17 9/12/2018Software Updates
Updated the software to allow for zero width draws. InkRaster will no longer report zero width draws as an error and instead report it as a warning.
Version 1.16 11/1/2017Software Updates
BMP output's image height is no longer negative.
Version 1.15 10/13/2017Software Updates
BMP output is no longer mirrored.
Version 1.14 7/6/2017Software Updates
Added a third coverage value in the gui and command line optional argument "-coverage". The third value is the coverage of the recovered narrow line - the default value is the equal to the edge coverage value.
Version 1.13 5/15/2017Intermediate pop-up Disabled
Disable pop-ups of intermediate modules. If not silent, the program will report warnings (if any) at the end of the conversion.
Version 1.12 1/04/2017Bug Fix for -reversal
Fixed the issue where the rasterizer failed to output the correct window with transformation when "-reversal" is specified. When reversal was specified, there was a step in the process that uses an invalid extent if transformation is present.
Version 1.11 12/06/2016Bug Fix for -unit and -minfeature
Fixed a bug in the command line where the arguments -unit and -minfeature were not read correctly.Updated Example
Updated the supplied batch file example to use the proper optional arguments.
Version 1.10 11/16/2016New User Interface
Added a QT based user interface. Command line or GUI usage is now possible.
command line unit control
Added an optional argument
-droplet -minfeat -window -margin -border -offset -anchor
If this option is not used, the Gerber input file's units (either inch or mm) are used.
Margin specified in Pixels
The margin can now be specified in pixels (previously only could be specified in Gerber file units.) To do this use the command line as such:
-margin:<val>[,val][px]For example if you want a 200 pixels margin all around the data extents the option would be:
Bug Fix - bitmap width
Customer reported that the image width was off by one pixel. This has been fixed.
Version 1.09 06/10/2016Issue with Gerber File Offset away from 0,0
Fixed issue where data far from 0,0 coordinate did not rasterized properly. What we did is trim the precision if the data is in danger of overflow.
Version 1.08 03/15/2016Library Support
Added inkraster64.lib, acs_inkraster.h, inkraster_sample.sln, inkraster_sample.vcproj and sample.cpp to enable users to call the program as a library.
Version 1.07 02/22/2016Software Updates
Added the option "-reversal" to reverse roles of digitized data.
Version 1.06 02/18/2016Software Updates
Fixed bug in creating bmp and/or inverse output when fill coverage is equals to edge coverage.
Version 1.05 02/06/2016Narrow Line Recovery
Improved the narrow line recovery algorithm
new argument that computes and returns the data extents without any rasterization.
Version 1.04 02/06/2016Argument Adjustment
Corrected the -mirror: argument. Axes were reversed.Margins
User can now set margins in vector units or in pixels. To set margins in vector units: -margin:X to set margins in pixels -margin:Npx where N is the number of pixels.
Version 1.03 02/04/2016Additional Controls
Added rotation and mirroring to the data transformations
Version 1.02 02/02/2016Bug Fix
Corrected a crashing problem with v1.01.
Version 1.01 01/29/2016Command Line Window Controls
Added -window, -margin and -invert command line arguments.
Version 1.00 01/26/2016Initial Release
Initial Release of InkRaster program.
