DJV 1.0 Released

I'm pleased to announce the 1.0 release of the DJV flipbook and command line tools. The DJV software provides professional quality tools for playing back and reviewing image sequences and movies.

This release is the culmination of a significant amount of work porting DJV to a new user interface toolkit (Qt). Highlights of this new version include:

  • DJV is now built upon the Qt toolkit
  • Updated third party packages including OpenEXR 2.2
  • Source code is now available from Git
  • Packages are available for Linux, OS X, and Windows
  • Downloads and installation instructions are here:
