in thread Does anybody know what's happened to GD?

Weird - it seems that it "always" supported JPEG. I was always under the impression that GD only supported GIF, GIF+PNG, PNG and then GIF+PNG again, when the GIF patent expired (disregarding fringe formats such as XBM). From browsing through the versions of Makefile.PL, it seems that JPEG support came (unnoticed) in 1.26 , which is the first to check for -ljpeg.

So I must have formed my image of GD in 2000, which is about when I started with Perl, and never updated my assumptions...

[Sinistral]: nail in coffin was the rant against a Schwarzian Transform
[stonecolddevin]: at best, from what i've seen, his knowledge is accurate up to maybe 2002. the sheer volume of words is mostly worthy of a downvote in most cases though i think

[erix]: hey planetscape :)
[planetscape]: howdy stonecolddevin, erix
[Sinistral]: eric Aye. I thought I typed that wrong. All hail Randall! I listen to him on FLOSS Weekly
[Discipulus]: i think his vacuus, trombon like, absence of meaning, joined with a ostentatious style, after many years irritates the most
[erix]: easy to get wrong -- I guess that was sund's point, too :P
[Discipulus]: planetscape welcome back! (or is well comeback?)
