version 0.82 [September, 1995]
[unspecified changes]

added first run progressive reader (barely tested)
version 0.86 [January, 1996]
fixed bugs
improved documentation
version 0.87 [January, 1996]
fixed medium model bugs
fixed other bugs introduced in 0.85 and 0.86

version 0.88 [January, 1996]
fixed progressive bugs
replaced tabs with spaces
cleaned up documentation
added callbacks for read/write and warning/error functions
version 0.89 [July, 1996]
added new initialization API to make libpng work better with shared libs
we now have png_create_read_struct(), png_create_write_struct(),
png_create_info_struct(), png_destroy_read_struct(), and
png_destroy_write_struct() instead of the separate calls to
malloc and png_read_init(), png_info_init(), and png_write_init()
changed warning/error callback functions to fix bug - this means you
should use the new initialization API if you were using the old
png_set_message_fn() calls, and that the old API no longer exists
so that people are aware that they need to change their code
changed filter selection API to allow selection of multiple filters
since it didn't work in previous versions of libpng anyways
optimized filter selection code
fixed png_set_background() to allow using an arbitrary RGB color for
paletted images
fixed gamma and background correction for paletted images, so
png_correct_palette is not needed unless you are correcting an
external palette (you will need to #define PNG_CORRECT_PALETTE_SUPPORTED
in pngconf.h) - if nobody uses this, it may disappear in the future.
fixed bug with Borland 64K memory allocation (Alexander Lehmann)
fixed bug in interlace handling (Smarasderagd, I think)
added more error checking for writing and image to reduce invalid files
separated read and write functions so that they won't both be linked
into a binary when only reading or writing functionality is used
new pngtest image also has interlacing and zTXt
updated documentation to reflect new API
version 0.90 [January, 1997]
made CRC errors/warnings on critical and ancillary chunks configurable
libpng will use the zlib CRC routines by (compile-time) default
changed DOS small/medium model memory support - needs zlib 1.04 (Tim Wegner)
added external C++ wrapper statements to png.h (Gilles Dauphin)
allow PNG file to be read when some or all of file signature has already
been read from the beginning of the stream. ****This affects the size
of info_struct and invalidates all programs that use a shared libpng****
fixed png_filler() declarations
fixed? background color conversions
fixed order of error function pointers to match documentation
current chunk name is now available in png_struct to reduce the number
of nearly identical error messages (will simplify multi-lingual
support when available)
try to get ready for unknown-chunk callback functions:
- previously read critical chunks are flagged, so the chunk handling
routines can determine if the chunk is in the right place
- all chunk handling routines have the same prototypes, so we will
be able to handle all chunks via a callback mechanism
try to fix Linux "setjmp" buffer size problems
removed png_large_malloc, png_large_free, and png_realloc functions.
version 0.95 [March, 1997]
fixed bug in pngwutil.c allocating "up_row" twice and "avg_row" never
fixed bug in PNG file signature compares when start != 0
changed parameter type of png_set_filler(...filler...) from png_byte
to png_uint_32
added test for MACOS to ensure that both math.h and fp.h are not #included
added macros for libpng to be compiled as a Windows DLL (Andreas Kupries)
added "packswap" transformation, which changes the endianness of
packed-pixel bytes (Kevin Bracey)
added "strip_alpha" transformation, which removes the alpha channel of
input images without using it (not necessarily a good idea)
added "swap_alpha" transformation, which puts the alpha channel in front
of the color bytes instead of after
removed all implicit variable tests which assume NULL == 0 (I think)
changed several variables to "png_size_t" to show 16/32-bit limitations
added new pCAL chunk read/write support
added experimental filter selection weighting (Greg Roelofs)
removed old png_set_rgbx() and png_set_xrgb() functions that have been
obsolete for about 2 years now (use png_set_filler() instead)
added macros to read 16- and 32-bit ints directly from buffer, to be
used only on those systems that support it (namely PowerPC and 680x0)
With some testing, this may become the default for MACOS/PPC systems.
only calculate CRC on data if we are going to use it
added macros for zTXt compression type PNG_zTXt_COMPRESSION_???
added macros for simple libpng debugging output selectable at compile time
removed PNG_READ_END_MODE in progressive reader (Smarasderagd)
more description of info_struct in libpng.txt and png.h
more instructions in example.c
more chunk types tested in pngtest.c
renamed pngrcb.c to pngset.c, and all png_read_<chunk> functions to be
png_set_<chunk>. We now have corresponding png_get_<chunk>
functions in pngget.c to get information in info_ptr. This isolates
the application from the internal organization of png_info_struct
(good for shared library implementations).

minor corrections in libpng.txt
added simple sRGB support (Glenn R-P)
easier conditional compiling, e.g. define PNG_READ/WRITE_NOT_FULLY_SUPPORTED;
all configurable options can be selected from command-line instead
of having to edit pngconf.h (Glenn R-P)
fixed memory leak in pngwrite.c (free info_ptr->text) (Glenn R-P)

png_get_spalettes, png_set_iCCP, png_set_spalettes (Eric S. Raymond).
NOTE: Applications that write text chunks MUST define png_text->lang
before calling png_set_text(). It must be set to NULL if you want to
write tEXt or zTXt chunks. If you want your application to be able to
run with older versions of libpng, use
png_text[i].lang = NULL;

offsets (Eric S. Raymond).
PNG_cHNK_SUPPORTED and combined the three types of PNG_text_SUPPORTED

Restored the first four members of png_text to the same order as v.1.0.5d.
Added members "lang_key" and "itxt_length" to png_text struct. Set
text_length=0 when "text" contains iTXt data. Use the "compression"
member to distinguish among tEXt/zTXt/iTXt types. Added
The "Note" above, about backward incompatibility of libpng-1.0.5e, no
longer applies.
Fixed png_read|write_iTXt() to read|write parameters in the right order,
and to write the iTXt chunk after IDAT if it appears in the end_ptr.
Added pnggccrd.c, version of pngvcrd.c Intel assembler for gcc (Greg Roelofs)
Reversed the order of trying to write floating-point and fixed-point gAMA.

Rearranged some members at the end of png_info and png_struct, to put
unknown_chunks_num and free_me within the original size of the png_structs
and free_me, png_read_user_fn, and png_free_fn within the original png_info,
because some old applications allocate the structs directly instead of
using png_create_*().
Added documentation of user memory functions in libpng.txt/libpng.3
Modified png_read_png so that it will use user_allocated row_pointers
if present, unless free_me directs that it be freed, and added description
of the use of png_set_rows() and png_get_rows() in libpng.txt/libpng.3.
Added PNG_LEGACY_SUPPORTED macro, and #ifdef out all new (since version
1.00) members of png_struct and png_info, to regain binary compatibility
when you define this macro. Capabilities lost in this event
are user transforms (new in version 1.0.0),the user transform pointer
(new in version 1.0.2), rgb_to_gray (new in 1.0.5), iCCP, sCAL, sPLT,
the high-level interface, and unknown chunks support (all new in 1.0.6).
This was necessary because of old applications that allocate the structs
directly as authors were instructed to do in libpng-0.88 and earlier,
instead of using png_create_*().
can be used to detect codes that directly allocate the structs, and
code to check these modes in png_read_init() and png_write_init() and
generate a libpng error if the modes aren't set and PNG_LEGACY_SUPPORTED
was not defined.

overrun when old applications fill the info_ptr->text structure directly.
Added PNGAPI macro, and added it to the definitions of all exported functions.

Changed pnggccrd.c and pngvcrd.c to handle bad adaptive filter types as
warnings instead of errors, as pngrutil.c does.

will actually write IDATs.
Made the default PNG_USE_LOCAL_ARRAYS depend on PNG_DLL instead of WIN32.
Make png_free_data() ignore its final parameter except when freeing data
that can have multiple instances (text, sPLT, unknowns).
Fixed a new bug in png_set_rows().
Removed info_ptr->valid tests from png_free_data(), as in version 1.0.5.

fewer error messages.
Rearranged checks for Z_OK to check the most likely path first in pngpread.c

Fixed some bugs in the unused PNG_INCH_CONVERSIONS functions in pngget.c
Set each pointer to NULL after freeing it in png_free_data().

More bugfixes and improvements to CMakeLists.txt (Philip Lowman)
Moved CMakeLists.txt from scripts into the main libpng directory.

Merged libpng-1.2.41.txt with libpng-1.4.0.txt where appropriate.
version 1.2.41beta10 [November 1, 2009]
Enabled iTXt support by default. To ensure binary compatibility with
previous versions, the "lang" and "lang_key" members will be assumed
to be omitted from previous versions unless the current libpng
version was built with PNG_iTXt_SUPPORTED (which is otherwise no
longer necessary to gain iTXt support), as a signal that the user has
been building previous versions with PNG_iTXt_SUPPORTED as well.
version 1.2.41beta11 [November 2, 2009]
Store user's user_png_ver in new png_ptr->user_png_ver element.

previous versions, the "lang" and "lang_key" members will be assumed
to be omitted from versions prior to 1.2.41beta11 whenever there is a
library mismatch.
version 1.2.41beta12 [November 2, 2009]
Free png_ptr->user_png_ver when destroying png_ptr.

to prevent warnings about direct access to png structs by libpng
functions while building libpng. They need to be tested, especially
those using compilers other than gcc.
Updated projects/visualc6 and visualc71 with "/d PNG_CONFIGURE_LIBPNG".
version 1.2.41beta16 [November 9, 2009]
Removed three direct references to read_info_ptr members in pngtest.c
that were detected by the new PNG_DEPSTRUCT macro.
Only #define PNG_DEPSTRUCT, etc. in pngconf.h if not already defined.

Removed "#define PNG_NO_ERROR_NUMBERS" that was inadvertently added
to pngconf.h in version 1.2.41.
Revised scripts/makefile.netbsd, makefile.openbsd, and makefile.sco

change in version 1.2.41beta08 caused transparency to be handled wrong
in some 16-bit datastreams (Yusaku Sugai).
version 1.2.42rc01 [December 17, 2009]
No changes.
version 1.2.42rc02 [December 22, 2009]

Eliminated redundant png_push_read_tEXt|zTXt|iTXt|unknown code from
pngpread.c and use the sequential png_handle_tEXt, etc., in pngrutil.c;
now that png_ptr->buffer is inaccessible to applications, the special

version 1.2.58beta01 [August 11, 2017]
Added png_check_chunk_length() function, and check all chunks except
IDAT against the default 8MB limit; check IDAT against the maximum
size computed from IHDR parameters.
