Next update info: 0.80
« on: 25 December 2009, 03:25:10 »
Planned features for next release:

  • Metadata - simple way to load and save information about images other than just width-height-format. Currently reads/writes print resolution of JPEG, PNG, and TIFF images, frame delays of APNG/GIF animations. Raw XMP/EXIF/IPTC metadata support for some file formats.
  • JPEG 2000 support improvements - from new version of JPEG 2000 for Pascal.
  • Maybe some file mapping support for very large images (nothing in core though, just some hacky extension for now).
  • Progress callback in few places.
  • Direct3D 11 texture support
  • Graphics32 interfacing unit
  • Some support for binary (1bit) images. Support in file formats: PNG, TIFF, BMP.
  • Image error metrics (psnr, rmse, ...)
  • Default clear color (for new images, rotations, etc.)
  • RAW (WxHxBpp) image bits loader/saver
  • Delphi XE2 support for new targets/frameworks: Win64, Mac OS X, FireMonkey bitmap conversions
  • Delphi XE3, Lazarus 1.0, FPC 2.6 support
  • RGBE/HDR file format
  • ..
Green items are done already.

I'm currently using Imaging in one bigger project and I need it to do some things it wasn't originally designed for (which was texture loading/saving for games) - implementation probably won't be very nice (metadata, progress, file mapping, 1bit stuff).

Hi, I'm currently swamped with work so the new release will have to wait a little bit longer. Not sure how long exactly, but you can get most of the planned features in SVN repository today.

EDIT July: Finally some time for non-work projects, so I'll continue working on some 0.80 features.

Hi Galfar.

Do you continue development of your library? Or is it in a frozen state?:)

Hi, yes it's still updated, but the progress is slower than it used to be.
Right now I'm making compatibility changes in Imaging for new Delphi (to target Win64 and MacOSX  ;))

This is by far the BEST imaging component for Delphi I've ever seen. Keep going, one day, Embarcadero will incorporate it within Delphi, and then you will be rewarded for your hard and excellent work.

Hello Galfar.
I thing you should release the current subversion as a new version and then release the rest in the next version.
Imaging is GREAT and it could really use a new release.

New release 0.78 just needs two more bug fixes to be finished and it will be ready
for final testing. There's also quite a lot of documentation to be updated.
