Released exclusively to Select usersSelect users were last week treated to the release of the PNG Developers kit, available from the subscribers section of the Select website. PNG files are graphics files expected to replace the GIF format and designed especially for the internet as well as allowing images to be as optimally compressed as possible. PNG files are now supported natively by the PNG module available only from RISC OS select.
"This developers kit provides information and resources for developers of applications which manipulate PNG files", the PNG developer kit website details. "It is expected that users be familiar with RISC OS interfaces, and using SWIs." The kit, classed as beta for the moment, includes various examples in C and BASIC as well as useful header files and API documentation for programmers.
