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.
