Unreleased

Added since 1.0.0

  • Add experimental API for reading and writing gain maps in AVIF files. If enabled at compile time, add gainMap field to avifImage, add qualityGainMap field to avifEncoder, add gainMapPresent, enableDecodingGainMap, enableParsingGainMapMetadata and ignoreColorAndAlpha to avifDecoder. Utility functions for working with gain maps are also added. Gain maps allow readers that support them to display HDR images that look good on both HDR and SDR displays. This feature is highly experimental. The API might change or be removed in the future. Files created now might not decode in a future version. This feature is off by default and must be enabled with the AVIF_ENABLE_EXPERIMENTAL_GAIN_MAP compilation flag.
  • Add experimental support for converting jpeg files with gain maps to AVIF files with gain maps. Requires libxml2, and the AVIF_ENABLE_EXPERIMENTAL_GAIN_MAP compilation flag. Add a --qgain-map flag to control the gain map quality in avifenc.
  • Add the headerFormat member of new type avifHeaderFormat to avifEncoder.
  • Add experimental API for reading and writing “mif3”-branded AVIF files behind the compilation flag AVIF_ENABLE_EXPERIMENTAL_MINI.
  • Implement avifImageScale() fallback when libyuv is not available.
  • Partial import of libyuv to third_party/libyuv (new LICENSE).
  • Add avifenc flag suffixes “:update” and “:u”. Quality-relative, tiling-relative and codec-specific flags can now be positional, relative to input files.
  • Add experimental support for layered AVIF encoding in avifenc. Use the --layered flag to enable layered AVIF encoding. Layered AVIF has multiple layers, which works like frame of animated AVIF, and layers can be rendered in progressive manner on supported viewers (e.g. Chrome 94 or newer). Only aom supports layered AVIF encoding at the time of writing. Add --scaling-mode flag to set scaling mode of each layer. This part of AV1 encoder is not as thoroughly tested, so there are higher possibility encoder may crash when given certain configuration or input.
  • Add imageSequenceTrackPresent flag to the avifDecoder struct.
  • avifImageScale() function was made part of the public ABI.
  • Add avif_cxx.h as a C++ header with basic functionality.
  • Add enum aliases AVIF_COLOR_PRIMARIES_SRGB, AVIF_COLOR_PRIMARIES_BT2100, AVIF_COLOR_PRIMARIES_DCI_P3, AVIF_TRANSFER_CHARACTERISTICS_PQ.
  • Add avifResult enum entry AVIF_RESULT_INTERNAL_ERROR.
  • Require libyuv by default (but it can still be disabled with -DAVIF_LIBYUV=OFF).
  • Add avifdec --icc flag to override the output color profile.
  • Add experimental API for reading and writing 16-bit AVIF files behind the compilation flag AVIF_ENABLE_EXPERIMENTAL_SAMPLE_TRANSFORM.

1.0.0 - 2023-08-24

With the 1.0.0 release, the ABI will be more stable from now on. Please note the allocation and initialization requirements for avifImage, avifDecoder, avifEncoder, and avifRGBImage in the “avif/avif.h” header.

List of incompatible ABI changes in this release:

  • The clli member was added to the avifImage struct.
  • The repetitionCount member was added to the avifEncoder and avifDecoder structs.
  • The quality and qualityAlpha members were added to the avifEncoder struct.
  • Check that functions returning pointers do not return NULL before accessing those pointers.
  • Check the return value of avifEncoderSetCodecSpecificOption().
  • The maxThreads member was added to the avifRGBImage struct.
  • Check the return value of avifRGBImageAllocatePixels(), avifRWDataRealloc(), avifRWDataSet(), avifImageSetProfileICC(), avifImageSetMetadataExif() and avifImageSetMetadataXMP().
  • The meaning of the keyframeInterval member of avifEncoder struct has changed slightly. When set to a value of “n”,
    • Before: It forces a keyframe on every nth frame.
    • After: Any set of “n” consecutive frame will have at least one keyframe (every nth frame may or may not be a keyframe).

Added

  • Add STATIC library target avif_internal to allow tests to access functions from internal.h when BUILD_SHARED_LIBS is ON.
  • Add clli metadata read and write support
  • Add repetitionCount member to avifEncoder and avifDecoder structs to specify the number of repetitions for animated image sequences.
  • Add quality and qualityAlpha to avifEncoder. Note: minQuantizer, maxQuantizer, minQuantizerAlpha, and maxQuantizerAlpha are deprecated. Code should be updated to set quality (and qualityAlpha if applicable) and leave minQuantizer, maxQuantizer, minQuantizerAlpha, and maxQuantizerAlpha initialized to the default values.
  • The --target-size flag in avifenc was added to adapt the quality so that the output file size is as close to the given number of bytes as possible.
  • Add the public API function avifImageIsOpaque() in avif.h.
  • Add the public API functions avifImagePlane(), avifImagePlaneRowBytes(), avifImagePlaneWidth(), and avifImagePlaneHeight() in avif.h.
  • Add experimental API for progressive AVIF encoding.
  • Add API for multi-threaded YUV to RGB color conversion.
  • Add experimental support for AV2 behind the compilation flag AVIF_CODEC_AVM. AVIF_CODEC_CHOICE_AVM is now part of avifCodecChoice.
  • Add experimental YCgCo-R support behind the compilation flag AVIF_ENABLE_EXPERIMENTAL_YCGCO_R.
  • Allow lossless 4:0:0 on grayscale input.
  • Add avifenc --no-overwrite flag to avoid overwriting output file.
  • Add avifenc --clli flag to set clli.
  • Add support for all transfer functions when using libsharpyuv.

Changed

  • Enable the libaom AV1E_SET_SKIP_POSTPROC_FILTERING codec control by default.
  • Use the constant rate factor (CRF) instead of the constant quantization parameter (CQP) rate control mode with the SVT-AV1 encoder.
  • Exif and XMP metadata is exported to PNG and JPEG files by default, except XMP payloads larger than 65502 bytes in JPEG.
  • The --grid flag in avifenc can be used for images that are not evenly divided into cells.
  • Apps must be built with libpng version 1.6.32 or above.
  • Change the encoder to write the boxes within the “stbl” box in the order of stsd, stts, stsc, stsz, stco, stss.
  • avifImageCopy() no longer accepts source U and V channels to be NULL for non-4:0:0 input if Y is not NULL and if AVIF_PLANES_YUV is specified.
  • The default values of the maxQuantizer and maxQuantizerAlpha members of avifEncoder changed from AVIF_QUANTIZER_LOSSLESS (0) to AVIF_QUANTIZER_WORST_QUALITY (63). The behavior changed if minQuantizer and maxQuantizer are left initialized to the default values. Code should be updated to set the quality member. Similarly for the alpha quantizers and qualityAlpha.
  • avifImageRGBToYUV() and avifImageYUVToRGB() handle avifImage bit depths 8, 10, 12 and now also 16. Files read by apps/shared/ can output 16-bit avifImage instances.
  • Update aom.cmd: v3.6.1
  • Update dav1d.cmd: 1.2.1
  • Update libsharpyuv: 0.4.0
  • Update rav1e.cmd: v0.6.6
  • Update svt.cmd/svt.sh: v1.6.0
  • Update zlibpng.cmd: zlib 1.2.13 and libpng 1.6.39
  • avifImageCreate(), avifImageCreateEmpty(), avifEncoderCreate() and other internal functions now return NULL if a memory allocation failed.
  • avifEncoderSetCodecSpecificOption() now returns avifResult instead of void to report memory allocation failures.
  • At decoding, avifIOStats now returns the same values as at encoding.
  • avifRGBImageAllocatePixels(), avifRWDataRealloc(), avifRWDataSet(), avifImageSetProfileICC(), avifImageSetMetadataExif() and avifImageSetMetadataXMP() now return avifResult instead of void to report memory allocation failures.
  • avifReadImage(), avifJPEGRead() and avifPNGRead() now remove the trailing zero byte from read XMP chunks, if any. See avifImageFixXMP().
  • Force keyframe for alpha if color is a keyframe.
  • Write primaries and transfer characteritics info in decoded PNG.
  • Add support for reading PNG gAMA, cHRM and sRGB chunks.
  • The ‘mode’ member of the avifImageMirror struct was renamed ‘axis’.
  • Change the type of the ‘depth’ parameter from int to uint32_t in avifFullToLimitedY(), avifFullToLimitedUV(), avifLimitedToFullY(), and avifLimitedToFullUV().
