Hi folks,

Well, miracles happen, OpenJPEG 2.1.1 is released today:

No fancy additional features, no API/ABI break compared to OpenJPEG
2.1 … Mostly a release with the *huge* amount of critical bug fixes
brought to the library since 2 years. A release that will therefore
mostly interest linux distributions package maintainers.
See full change log here:

The real good news however is the following: release process has been
drastically automated, thanks to the powerful tools from github,
travis and appveyor. Making a release is now (almost) as easy as
tagging the right branch in the github repo: it automatically creates
the releases and upload the binaries. So OpenJPEG  will eventually
have a release cycle that’s worth its name: every 3 months at max,
I’ll tag the repo to trigger a new release.

And, last but not least, among the bunch of tests that are
automatically done for each commit, the results of the API/ABI
compliance check is now directly uploaded on the OpenJPEG website:
http://www.openjpeg.org/abi-check/timeline/openjpeg/, so that we can
follow the compliance from one commit to another.

I hope you will enjoy this new release and the above-mentioned
improvements. I take this opportunity to thank all those having
contributed to improve the library until now. Special thanks to
Matthieu Darbois for all the time spent on bug fixes, PR merging, and
continuous integration improvement.
