The XV "jumbo" patches are a pair of aggregate patches against XV 3.10a, which was last released in December 1994. The first jumbo patch incorporates roughly two dozen bugfixes. The second patch encompasses almost as many enhancements, including support for additional image formats like PNG, PhotoCD, and PDF; performance improvements; and new features such as mouse-wheel support, alpha blending against a background color, and improved dithering for 15/16-bit displays. All patches available from the official XV site are included, as well as numerous other patches from around the world.

Release Notes: This version adds JPEG-2000 support (courtesy of Scott Marovich), significant improvements to TIFF support and the Visual Schnauzer, JPEG/EXIF preservation, and numerous fixes.
Release Notes: This release fixes a number of format string, system(), and mktemp() vulnerabilities. It adds optional support for six new image formats (HIPS and five Japanese formats: PIC, PIC2, MAG, MAKI, and PI), magic/suffix image-type identification, multi-page (animated) GIFs, a -startgrab option, and various new keyboard shortcuts. There are build improvements and bugfixes.
Release Notes: This release (correctly) fixes heap overflows in most of the image decoders; the third-party patches distributed in September 2004 were incomplete. In addition, it fixes some display bugs in the TIFF and XWD decoders, adds full support for version-4 BMPs ("bitfields"), and includes some other small improvements.
Release Notes: This is the first public release of the (unofficial) XV jumbo patches, incorporating (and reconciling) 25 bugfix patches and 21 enhancement patches into two easy-to-apply super-patches.
