Caliph & Emir are MPEG-7 based Java prototypes for digital photo and image annotation and retrieval supporting graph like annotation for semantic metadata and content-based image retrieval using MPEG-7 descriptors.


This is mainly a maintenance release: Scalable Color descriptor extraction was fixed, and yields the same results as the MPEG-7 reference software. EdgeHistogramImpl has been updated. The DominantColor class was adapted. PPM and BMP images are now supported. Note that Java 6.0 is required for the binary version and 1.5 for compilation.
