As shown in https://bugs.gentoo.org/663468 and others for Imagemagick7 and linking apps, there are issues related to pkgconfig, and others to the C++ API Changes. Especilally inkscape, which is animportant piece of OS Software.
1. Inkscape didn't recognize IM7 because it looks for ImageMagick++ in pkgconfig, not for Magick++, and that isn't found.
If I generate a symlink the Inkscape set up finds ImageMagick++ but it uses the removed deprecated functions and errors.
To figure out a solution I'd like to know:
1. The pkgconfig entries and links through the V6.9 to recent history, because then the configure checks can be adjusted.
2. The C++ API removements an there replacements to obtain patches for the failing apps.
Where can I find this information? (without parsing every release)
Post any defects you find in the released or beta versions of the ImageMagick software here. Include the ImageMagick version, OS, and any command-line required to reproduce the problem. Got a patch for a bug? Post it here.
