This release solves the problem with newer version of ImageMagick.

Apache::ImageMagick - Convert and manipulate images on the fly

This module uses the Image::Magick library to process or create an image on
the fly. It is able to convert the source image to any type you request that
is supported by Image::Magick (e.g. TIFF, PPM, PGM, PPB, GIF, JPEG and
more).
Additionaly you can specify (multiple) image manipulation filters in the
additional path info and format options in the query string.
Apache::ImageMagick caches the result image so multiple requested with
the same parameters only needs one computation. To do more sophisticated
manipulation, Apache::ImageMagick can run a script that does the image
manipulation/creation. Last but not least Apache::ImageMagick comes with
a proxy module, that can be linked into a non mod_perl frontend proxy server
and which will delivers cached images which highest possible speed.

Changes since 2.0b5:

2.0b7 28. Sep 2002

 - Updated the list of allowable attribute to write method call, so
   you don't get and unknow attribute error anymore.
 - Added AIMCheckMTime which, when set, cause Apache::ImageMagick
   to compare the modification time of the source and the cached
   image and recompute the result if the source has changed.
 - Added AIMDisableSearch to disable auto conversion of image formats
 - Directory Requests are ignored now, so they can be handled by Apache
   as usual.
 - Add example CGI script in scripts/aimcgi.pl
 - Start with an test suite. You may run it with perl tst/test.pl but
   it may fail on the test which involves fonts, unless you same the
   same fonts as on my test machine.

2.0b6 28. Feb 2002

 - ImageMagick warnings are only logged, but image is still returned
 - Add CGI::ImageMagick which is a fake Apache request and allows
   to use Apache::ImageMagick as CGI or offline
 - Fix some copy & paste errors, which causes warnings
