For version 2 the plugin has been in large part rewritten to remove the dependency on Windows Imaging Component. Encoding and decoding is now done by the recently released jxrlib
. This means the plugin is now more or less platform-independent and has been tested successfully on Ubuntu 10.10.
Other changes from version 1:
- More advanced options in save dialog including alpha channel quality
- Black-white indexed images are now saved in the appropriate pixel format
