EasyBMP 1.05 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.

Version 1.05 adds a copy constructor for the BMP, which should improve compatibility. This release also introduces a small but useful feature: image rescaling to a desired percentage, width, height, or square box fit. All rescaling is done proportionally with high-quality bilinear interpolation.

EasyBMP Version 1.05 can be downloaded from SourceForge at
