Additionally all versions come in a range of "flavors" which represent
different combinations of processors (additional programs / libraries used for
image processing). Available processors are `ffmpeg` (for video), `kakadu` and

`graphicsmagick`. If you need another combination or replace `graphicsmagick`
with `imagemagick` see below.
Readily available flavors:
