Mako 6.6.4 Release Notes


This release of Mako Core addresses a problem discovered while testing Mako 6.6.3 and reported in the online release notes. Since then, it was found the issue had a wider effect on rendering than at first thought, so the change was reverted for all but the PostScript input path, the original use case.

Additionally, a fix for a specific support issue is included in this release, labelled MAKOSUP-XXXXX. The link is live and can be followed to the Mako support portal, but will only work for the customer who reported it.


This release also includes Windows, macOS and Linux builds of Mako that integrate the ColorLogic CMM in place of the usual LittleCMS. These builds are found in the ColorLogic folder.

A SWIG build is also provided for C#, Java and Python (Windows only).

NuGet packages are available for C++ and C#.

The ColorLogic CMM is delivered as a DLL (Dynamic Link Library for Windows) or SO (Shared Object) for macOS and Linux. Mako expects this runtime to be present alongside your Mako-based executable.
