Description squeezechart 2017-12-18 12:14:37 UTC
please add support for JPEG-XR image format (image import and inside .ods/.odt)


it offers better lossy and lossless compression (compared to TIF and PNG)

Discussion about a couple of new filters has been done in bug 114533, setting this one to NEW.

To quote Tomaž: "The problem with JPEG XR is that it is not really much of an improvement over JPEG or PNG (sometimes it is even worse) and that the open-source libjxr is practically un-maintained library."

Well we need Jpeg-XR for full support of images in OOXML documents.. even if it is just a "meh" format it is something MSO uses in some cases. So I wouldn't close this one...

Right, reverting status change.
