I have moved jp2a to https://github.com/cslarsen/jp2a
I urge all package managers to update to this location.
The most prominent new feature is that you can convert output images to grayscale.
This is the first non-beta stable release of jp2a. Minor changes.
Color support for text (ANSI colors) and HTML (CSS colors) were added to this latest release.
It also contains some bugfixes, e.g. when using fit-to-terminal and viewing multiple files.
This release now reads all the source pixels, which gives *much* better output quality.
Also, you can automatically scale the output image to your terminal display size.
CHANGES SINCE 0.9.17
- Bugfix: No more crashes when reading non-JPEG files on Windows.
- New option: --output=file, send output to given file
- New options: -x for shorthand --flipx, and -y for --flipy.
- New options: --red, --green, --blue.
- More natural RGB to Grayscale calculation.
- Updated manuals.
- Cleaner code.
- Faster code (most evident in large images).
You can now download images to convert with the win32 binary distribution.
Also added a new (experimental) option to --clear the screen between each refresh.
Version 0.9.14 with some minor fixes is now released.
This release includes a win32 binary version,
but note that the Windows-version does not yet
jp2a can now automatically download and convert an image that you specify by giving an URL. For this to work you need libcurl.
If you don't have libcurl installed, then jp2a will stil work as before.
New features in 0.9.9 include options --flipx, --flipy for flipping output image, as well as --html and --html-fontsize for HTML output.
jp2a is also a little bit faster for big output dimensions.
A lot of important bugfixes for this release, be sure to update!
The newest version has many bugfixes that greatly increases output quality.
The first public release of jp2a is now ready for download!
