Subject Re: [imaging] Apache Commons Imaging 1.0 final release ?
Date Mon, 28 Aug 2017 12:30:12 GMT
Hi Bruno,

Thank for your feedback ! It's really nice to know there are still 
people actively using/working on the library.

To answer your help request ;
First a big disclaimer : I am not familiar with image processing in 
general, I have no knowledge of the Imaging API, and never coded with it 

That being said, just by looking at the issues in the bugtracker, all 
major bugs (specially parsing bugs leading to exceptions) would be the 
only things blocking a 1.0 release in my opinion.
If Imaging is mature and stable enough (is it from an API user 
perspective? I don't know yet), a 1.0 would be the most awaited feature 
:) (looking at the mailing list history also shows this expectation 
since quite a long time).
An official release with "just" bug fix, and *without* new major 
feature/improvement, would (probably) increase official adoption of the 
library, and would then be the base for future stronger feedback.

or moved to a branch for a later release.

Not necessarily jump and code if you don't have time, but maybe just provide feedback on which
features you think **must** be in the 1.0 release, and if you found anything that would prevent
this initial release.
