Color Management Test Day Thursday 2010-02-18

It's Test Day time again!

This Thursday, 2010-02-18, will be Color Management Test Day. There's some exciting new color management features in Fedora 13. That is to say, there are color management features in Fedora 13! We've never had any real color management in Fedora before, so this is great news for photographers and designers in particular - but everybody, really.

The good news is testing for this Test Day is very easy - anyone with a monitor can do most of the testing. A scanner, printer, webcam or colorimeter let you do some other tests. You don't need a Rawhide installation to do the testing, just a nightly live image will do fine, and the testing process is fully documented and won't take more than a few minutes. So come out and help us test! Even if you don't use Fedora, you can test very easily with a live image, and this is one of those features that's popping up in Fedora first but will soon appear in all distributions (as it'll be part of GNOME itself), so you'll be helping your own distribution by testing.

The Test Day will run all day in Freenode IRC #fedora-test-day. See this page if you're not sure how to use IRC - or you can use WebIRC just by clicking this link! Ah, the wonders of science.
