This release enables deep color output (30 bits) on systems that support it,
and vastly improves the handling of video files when used with libtad ≥ 2.3:
they are now shown instantly, decoding is hardware accelerated by default, and
jumping between different frames is faster than before.
This release fixes a few problems with color space handling under certain conditions and improves grid rendering.
This release improves handling of data with more than 4 channels, data with alpha channels, and
data containing color data in the GRAY or SRGB/GRAY color spaces. Furthermore,
operations on color channels (e.g. range selection, dynamic range reduction, color mapping)
now work on perceptually linear lightness (via the CIELUV color space) instead of
the luminance channel of CIEXYZ.
An update is recommended.
This release fixes a small problem where the current channel was not kept when
switching between frames inside the same file, e.g. in a video.
This release focusses on usability improvements. All functionality is now available
through a classical menu and context menu system in addition to the keyboard shortcuts.
Furthermore, a cyclic qualitative color map was added, useful for example for phase data.
A few minor improvements were made. The only functional change is that the key
bindings for switching between files and frames were swapped: without the shift
key, you now switch files, and with the shift key, you now switch between
frames inside the same file (e.g. for video files).
It is recommended to use the latest version of the tad library
to benefit from its improvements.
This version improves the info overlay and adds an option
set importer hints (as in the
This version speeds up color space conversions and the computation of
statistics and histograms by using all CPU cores. Furthermore, usability was
improved and a few bugs were fixed. By using libtad 0.6, support for various
file formats is improved, and reloading a file works reliably now.
Update: version 2.5 introduced a color conversion bug and was replaced with version 2.6.
This version improves navigation through many files (thousands are no problem)
and optimizes performance. Several bugs were fixed.
This version allows to manage visualization parameters either per file or globally for all files.
More data types are support for sRGB color images (in particular, 16 bit).
A few bugs were fixed.
This version fixes a few bugs and improves the brightness handling for dynamic range reduction (tone mapping).
This version adds suppor for many more input formats, including frame-by-frame
analysis of video files, mainly thanks to improvements in tad 0.3.
Additionally, some bugs were fixed.
This version adds support for very large files by using a quadtree hierarchy.
Usability was improved everywhere. Support for simple dynamic range reduction / tone mapping was added.
This is the first useful release.
