Dear subscriber,

barsnick just announced version 8a of libjpeg on

The changes are as follows:

New data source and destination managers, jpeg_mem_src() and jpeg_mem_dest(),
were added to the API. The accuracy of floating point IDCT calculations was
improved. jpegtran now supports the same "-scale" option as djpeg for "lossless"
resize. Support for 32-bit BPMs (RGB images with an alpha channel) was added. A
potential crash in the BMP reader module was fixed.

Project description:

libjpeg is a library for handling the JPEG (JFIF) image format. Included are the
programs cjpeg and djpeg for converting to and from this format, jpegtran to
perform some lossless transformations on JPEG imagess, and rdjpgcom and wrjpgcom
