I just created this account on advogato, so there is not much to report for today. Maybe one thing: Last weekend the LCMS (Little Color Management System) version 1.04 was released. This was Windows software originally, I helped Marti (the author) to port it to Linux (at this time only the Intel architecture is supported). Check out his site at http://www.lcms.coloraid.de
Don't hold your breath, but there is a Gimp plugin in the making that uses this library and can color correct scanned images using an ICC profile.
