- Fixed devicelink generation for 8 bits

- Added a reference for Mac MLU tag

- Added a way to read the profile creator from header

- Added identity curves support for write V2 LUT

- Rendering intent used when creating the transform is now propagated to profile header in cmsTransform2Devicelink.

- Transform2Devicelink now keeps white point when guessing deviceclass is enabled

For further changes please see the ChangeLog in the RPM.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the SUSE security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
