News and History of the MNG Developers from 2004
Herein lie news items and historical stuff regarding MNG. Feel free to poke
around, but note that some of the links, particularly the older ones, may be
broken. Keep in mind that this is history here...
- latest - see here
- 4 October 2004 - zlib 1.2.2 is released. This version
eliminates a potential security vulnerability when decoding
invalid compressed data, fixes a bug when decompressing dynamic blocks
with no distance codes, and modifies gzread() not to return an error on
empty files. Also note that zlib.org is not currently maintained; use zlib.net instead.
- 25 August 2004 - Thanks to Julien of WXEdit fame, we have a new MNG mirror in
Neufchatel, Switzerland: http://libpng.mirror.fr/pub/mng/ . It is currently updated
- 8 August 2004 - libmng 1.0.8 is
released. "This is the version that contains the data-push mechanisms
and a few other bits and pieces." (It was released, in part, to support
Mozilla's yet-to-be-restored MNG decoder.)
- 4 March 2004 - Robert Bernier's article, Making Screen-Capture
Movies, is published on Linux DevCenter. It focuses on using ImageMagick to make
such movies and covers both GIF and MPEG as well as MNG, but it also
includes several examples where MNG is significantly smaller than either
of the other two (which is hardly surprising for this kind of animation).
