The libjpeg-turbo library, which is the increasingly-used fork of the JPEG library that provides faster performance through SIMD optimizations, has out a new release.
Coming out this weekend was libjpeg-turbo 1.3.0 as the project's latest release. The last time this project was in the news was when there were update compatibility concerns
with the upstream libjpeg code-base.
Per the SourceForge page
, the libjpeg-turbo 1.3.0 release isn't particularly exciting aside from fixing make test
on FreeBSD, overhauling the packaging system, and fixing a Huffman encoder bug.
