JPEG XL support missing in 0.99.1 - or am I missing something?

Post by borys1703 »

Hi,
I recently installed a new version of XnView MP. I use Debian, so I downloaded the 64bit deb package from the main website.
I expected to be able to open and save JPEG XL files (according to many places on this forum and according to the changelog, the JPEG XL support is already implemented).
However, XnView MP doesn't recognize a sample .jxl file I downloaded, JPEG XL is not listed in the file formats in save as dialog, it is not listed in the settings window under formats/saving and formats/write tab.
I also tried the 32bit windows version under wine, both the one with installer and the portable one. I also tried version 0.99.0. All the same, there is no trace of any JPEG XL support.
Am I missing something, or did I misunderstand something, and there is no JPEG XL support yet?
Best,
Borys.

I think I found the reason.
The JPEG XL functionality is only present in the 64bit Windows version.
