GD is an open source code library for the dynamic creation of images by 
programmers.  GD is written in C, and wrappers are available for Perl, PHP and 
other languages.  GD creates PNG, JPEG, GIF, WebP, XPM, BMP images, among other 
formats.  GD is commonly used to generate charts, graphics, thumbnails, and most 
anything else, on the fly.  While not restricted to use on the web, the most 
common applications of GD involve website development.

This is an update to the latest upstream release.  See
