Now that Apple announced that will start using HEIF format for images probably it's a good time to start support the encoder / decoder.

I was just going to add this very same suggestion.

In fact, it's going to be THE must-have option specially if the Apple part becomes true...

Iphone create heic images for now :/
it's exactly the same algorithm as BPG. (bpg is also added in decode format, not encode)

It's now a needy format for iphone user. Is it difficult to add a new image format in xnview?
I'm confident, Pierre is the best developper :p

La France ne reconnait pas ces brevets logiciel à la con non? Surtout que bpg utilise le même algo HEVC pour la compression d'image avec du code libre.
Faire un module pour les français ne serait pas possible?

Ou alors c'est que les débiles mentaux de la MPEG la vous tomberons dessus si vous supportez le format sans accord?

ffmpeg dis ça:
Q: Is it safe to use such patented algorithms?
A: Patent laws vary wildly between jurisdictions, and in many countries patents on algorithms are not recognized. Plus the use of patents to prevent the usage of a format or codec on a specific operating system or together with specific other software might violate antitrust laws. So whether you are safe or not depends on where you live and how judges interpret the law in your jurisdiction.
