Lossless compression for WebP format

Post by eL_PuSHeR » Wed Dec 21, 2011 8:01 am

Hello.

According to Wikipedia WebP format supports lossless compression as of November 2011. It would be cool if it could be implemented. If this is done via plugin then it would not be a Pierre's task.

They released a bunch of new features in November, but only in "experimental" branch:

I would suggest to wait for the next official release (probably 0.1.4)

You are right, specially if it's in experimental stage.
