yes but they pay perhaps the patent ;)
the latest GIMP added heif import/export support I doubt they payed anyone anything

apparently microsoft's added heif support in windows 10 build 17123

I can confirm that after downloading a codec from the microsoft store microsoft photos can open heif files as far as I can tell no write support

I understand that the GPL is extremely restrictive
to be clear the plugin is read only with no write support are there plans for write support?

one of the reasons jpeg stuck around for so long was the lack of patent restrictions (almost)
talking patents and jpeg the arithmetic coding patent has ended and libjpeg-turbo already has arithmetic coding support and XnView MP can read arithmetically encoded jpeg's can we get write support (a check box use arithmetic instead of Huffman coding)

Looks like those are Windows DLLs. Any XnView MP plugins for Mac that support HEIF / HEIC files?
