CamlImages is an image processing library, which provides to the
objective Caml programmer a lot of image processing functionality.

CamlImages provides to the objective Caml programmer:

** basic functions for image processing and loading/saving various image
file formats (hence providing a translation facility from format to format),

** an interface with the Caml graphics library allows to display
images in the Graphics module screen and to mix them with Caml

** a freetype interface, integrated into the library:
you can draw texts into images using any truetype fonts,

** a set of example programs, including gif animation, slide show,
and a postscript converter to print images.

There is still a security issue not fixed in this release which concerns
TIFF images. A CVE has been announced a while ago:

I tried to contact the authors (one month ago) but received no answer
yet. That's why I'm sending this message on the list: to let users and
packagers know about the bug.

The vulenarable file is “src/tiffread.c”. The patch is available at:

and the source code of “oversized.h” is available at:

These changes are applied in the Debian packages and were backported to
the stable and oldstable releases.
