Release!

As I’ve yet again grown tired of gfxindex I’ve decided to release it in it’s current condition. It is largely rewritten, much more modular now and it’s reusing more code now. It should work mostly nice. It lacks documentation and only reads JPEG and PNG. However some major new features have been put in:

  • Dependency of X removed
  • It creates thumbnails much faster now due to using the built in scaling of libjpeg. This prescales the thumbnail by skipping data before decoding. Results are still almost as good as reading in the whole image and then scale it
  • Thumbnails are scaled using weighted scaling giving a smooth look to them
  • The index can be much more customized
  • The index caching is gone, it’s however still rather fast to read in the images’ properties
  • Availability for Windows
