Short: PNG image datatype V45.24
Author: oliver@futaura.co.uk (Oliver Roberts)
Uploader: oliver futaura co uk (Oliver Roberts)
Type: util/dtype
Version: 45.24
Requires: OS 3.0+,picture.datatype v43
Architecture: m68k-amigaos; ppc-amigaos; ppc-morphos; ppc-warpup

Changes since previous Aminet release:

- When the OS3.2 V47 picture.datatype is in use, decoding speed will
now be 5-10% faster for both 68k and WarpOS.
- When the OS4 V54 picture.datatype is in use, decoding speed will
now be 5-10% faster and up to 25% faster for interlaced images.
- Significantly reduced memory usage when decoding interlaced
images, if using the OS3.2 V47 or OS4 V54 picture.datatype.
- Benchmarks now performed using PicDTBench.


FEATURES

- Supports both normal and interlaced PNG files

- Gamma correction options allow the output image to be changed to
suit your monitor/environment

- Alpha channel handling can be configured to output RGBA bitmaps, or
RGB bitmaps either by combining the alpha information internally
using a configurable background colour or simply stripping it

- Highly optimized datatype dispatch engine, and fast PNG decoder,
resulting in a very efficient, compact and quick PNG datatype

- Asynchronous file i/o and double buffering techniques (WarpOS only),
which speeds up image decoding

- Optimized versions for 68020, 030, 040 and 060

- PowerPC support with native OS4, WarpOS and MorphOS versions

- Alter the pen allocation precision when images are remapped to an
8-bit display

- Specific support for the AmigaOS picture.datatype v44+, when available

- The dithering feature of the AmigaOS picture.datatype v44+ can be
configured to your liking (e.g. disabled for 15/16-bit displays)

- Based on libpng 1.6.37 and zlib 1.2.11
