Ditto. I've actually patched my XV to fix the two annoyances I've had:
Perhaps I should dig up those patches and post them somewhere.
- Sped up smoothing by tweaking the fixed point arithmetic, trading a "/100" with ">>7".
- Added some "memory" to the Visual Schnauzer, so that when I'm going through trees of folders (I'm an organization freak sometimes), the cursor doesn't go back to the top of the list. Makes it really easy to recurse through a massive hierarchy.
Please do! About four years ago I put together almost all of the XV patches--including several of my own--into a pair of "jumbo" patches (one for fixes, one for enhancements), but since there were a couple of mine I didn't have time to finish (transparency stuff for TIFF and XPM), I never posted them. But maybe it's time I did so... (And who knows, maybe it would inspire John to get off his butt and release an update. One could say the same for Jef Poskanzer, too, of course, but I digress...)
Anyway, feel free to shoot your patches my way (newt at pobox dot com eh? or just check the PNG home site) and I'll see what I can do in the next few weeks.
