#42 pngcrush: Compilation with libpng 1.5 fails

devel (22)

I know you're aware of that, but I wanted to have this bug open to track progress.

What's the status of libpng 1.5 support? I'm currently struggling to keep pngcrush in Gentoo and things would be much easier if pngcrush would work with libpng 1.5.

    For now use the full version (with the bundled libpng-1.5 and zlib), not the "nolib" version. It uses libpng private functions and therefore won't work with a DLL or shared library.

  • Glenn Randers-Pehrson

    As of version 1.7.57, pngcrush can be built with libpng-1.5.x or 1.6.x.

    Pngcrush version 1.7.58 works with libpng15 and 16.
