Dear subscriber,

kingradar just announced version 8c of libjpeg on

The changes are as follows:

A -block N option was added to the compression library and cjpeg for using
different DCT block sizes. Values of 1 to 16 are possible, and the default is 8
(baseline format). Larger values produce higher compression, while smaller
values produce higher quality. A SmartScale capable decoder (introduced with IJG
JPEG 8) is required.

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
to manipulate JFIF comments.
