EasyBMP Version 0.67 Released

EasyBMP is an easy cross-platform C++ library for reading and writing Windows bitmap (BMP) files. No installation, no need for external libraries, small in size, well-documented, and simple enough for the novice programmer to start in just minutes! EasyBMP particularly shines as an easy image input/output tool for scientists and other technically-minded people who may not be formally trained in programming.

EasyBMP is pleased to release Version 0.67 of the core library. This release focuses on fixing reported bugs and code cleanup. Code has been further separated from function declarations, which should help improve compatibility when compiling projects that use EasyBMP in a DLL. Some auxiliary mathematics and endianness functions were made inline to improve performance. The bug where EasyBMP interfered with Win32 GDI if EasyBMP.h was included before windows.h was fixed. Contact and support information was updated in all the library files. Lastly, the change log was updated for improved readability and aesthetic appeal.
