  In order to gather customer feedback on which image file formats to
prioritize, we have opened a series of RFEs, each requesting a reader or writer
plug-in for a particular format.

  By allowing Java users to cast Bug Parade votes, we hope to get a better
sense of what formats are needed.  Note that many users may require only
a reader and not a writer, or vice versa, for a particular format; for example,
a web  application might serve an archive of TIFF images, converting them
to GIF, JPEG, or PNG dynamically in order to faciliate browser access.
Such an application has no need to write TIFF or to read PNG.

  The list of RFEs is as follows:

                        Reader                  Writer

PUBLIC COMMENTS Master list of plug-in request RFEs: *** NO VOTES PLEASE! ***

EVALUATION Master list of RFE's ============= As of version 5.0, the JDK includes the following plugins: JPEG (r/w) PNG (r/w) BMP (r/w) WBMP (r/w) GIF (read only) As of version 1.0_01, the JAI IIO Tools package includes the following: TIFF (r/w) JPEG2000 (r/w) BMP (r/w) WBMP (r/w) RAW (r/w) PNM (r/w) JPEG (r/w, optimized) PNG (r/w, optimized) GIF (write only) For JDK 6.0, we are considering pulling the GIF writer into the JDK, as well as adding support for EXIF metadata in JPEG images. Now that we have implemented the plugins listed above, we will be closing the RFEs associated with plugins that have already been implemented by the JAI IIO Tools package, as well as those that we do not intend to provide in the JDK (in the foreseeable future). Note that this should not discourage developers in the Java community from collaborating with each other to produce new IIO plugins. If your application requires a plugin not offered by the JDK or JAI IIO Tools package, please consider starting a new project on java.net. ###@###.### 10/26/04 22:45 GMT
