vips-x.y.x.tar.gz is a source tarball containing a complete build system. Download this to build from source.

The libvips Windows binary contains ALL the file format loaders that libvips supports, including some very minor ones, and a complete copy of ImageMagick. It can process many different file types, but it is also rather vulnerable to hacking.

The build contains only file format loaders that have been carefully tested and which are commonly used on the web. It won't load formats like openslide (for example), but it should be safer to use with untrusted input.

Changes since 8.7.3:

  • zero memory on allocate to prevent write of uninitialized memory under some error conditions [Balint Varga-Perke]
