Re: Iphone Flavor of PNG format

Let's wait what they say to Apple's "PNG" ... The difference is that Apple wants to patent this "invention". I'm not kidding: http://www.faqs.org/patents/app/20100211553 Not surprisingly, PNG group thinks the "invention" is dumb, and PNG specs qualifies as prior art. Maybe ... Internet is still ful...

Re: Iphone Flavor of PNG format

They tried to do it "legally and smoothly" but still APNG breaks the purpose of PNG "to store a single static image". It could be their wish, but they forgot to make specific rules about what kind of information is forbidden in third-party chunks. Without such rules, I could embed mp3 inside, if I ...

Re: Iphone Flavor of PNG format

APNG is NOT PNG. It also breaks the PNG spec No it's not. PNG specs allows third-party chunks extensions. If a third-party follows those chunk-naming rules, you cannot accuse them of breaking anything. APNG has been rejected by the PNG developers Not unanimously. Some PNG developers love it. Your o...

Re: Iphone Flavor of PNG format

Yeah, lets implement normal PNG completely (some features are still missing), before supporting this abomination.

xnview (or, at least, the version i've been on) only allows for black and white. is this
still the case?
Yeah, I miss 3-points levels too.

2-points is not enough. Middle point is important.

Re: XnView must go Opensource!

While we were busy arguing, Pierre fixed it in 1.97.4. :D

Re: XnView must go Opensource!

OK, let's take a look at this bug: http://newsgroup.xnview.com/viewtopic.php?f=36&t=19477 It's the same bug in both Firefox and XnView. We have now 3 versions of XnView with this bug, with almost to response. All it takes is to go back to the older code, because it worked fine before. In Firefox it ...

Re: XnView must go Opensource!

disagree OS software has no responsibility. There are hundreds of firefox bugs that are too 'boring' to fix or have been abandoned over the years. a responsive owner of xnview gives us much better software than OSS's "someone else will fix it" mentality. Both approaches have problems. 1. I posted a...
