Little CMS 2.13.1 released

I am glad to the announce the release 2.13.1 of the LittleCMS open source color engine.

Little CMS intends to be a small-footprint color management engine, with special focus on accuracy and performance. It uses the International Color Consortium standard (ICC), which is the modern standard when regarding to color management. The ICC specification is widely used and is referred to in many International and other de-facto standards.
