Release Notes: This candidate release for version 0.4 introduces GraphicsMagic library support (more file formats), renders "matrix market" numerical matrix files (via librsb), makes the "aa" output device ignore X, adds documentation improvements (e.g., the fim man page is now auto-generated), adds "imlib2" X-based output device support, makes "sdl" output device improvements, adds hardcoded consolefonts support, makes the history file optional, improves many commands, and adds --no-commandline, --no-internal-config, --enable-custom-status-bar, and --as-text switches. Random image browsing can now be done with either --random or --random-no-seed.
Release Notes: This is a major release. Over version 0.3, it introduces support of the GraphicsMagic library (more formats supported), support for rendering "matrix market" numerical matrix files (with librsb), X mode no longer the default in aalib (available as an option), libjpeg/libpng usage improvements, documentation improvements (e.g., the fim man page is auto-generated), "imlib2" X-based output device support, "sdl" output device improvements, hardcoded consolefonts support, support to disable the fim history file, improvements to many commands, and --no-commandline and --no-internal-config switches.
Release Notes: This is the updated version following fim-0.3-beta-prerelease. Although superseded by version 0.4-beta, this version should be quite stable, as it implement bugfixes collected over 2010 and 2011. It also introduces some features, including better consolefonts support, much better SDL support (different color modes), a negate feature, and a -S, or "sanity-check", switch.
Release Notes: New features include experimental support for AAlib (ASCII art rendering), the ability to read image files and scripts from stdin, support for running on the PowerPC architecure, buffering and scrolling for the debug console, a speedup in magnifying pictures, a speedup in displaying dithered images, looser quote checking when "push"ing files, the ability to dump to file executable scripts, a regular expressions operator, new default key bindings for control over split windows, and the ability to compile the code without the readline library.
Release Notes: Internal windowing (with splitting, resizing, swapping) support. .xcf, .fig, .dia, and .svg files are now viewable via wrapper calls. Interactive command iteration (in the [n]<command key> form) has been introdocued. fim will try to run under screen and over SSH connections now. A custom framebuffer device, fonts, and gamma are supported. There are enriched compile-time options via the ./configure script. Vim-styled variable scoping g:,i:,v:,w: (local variables) has been added. Some bugs have been fixed. New variables and commands have been introduced.
