19 Aug 2006 Prices increased. PRO version: $179$199, 16-bit version: $349$399.
15 Jun 2006 Important notice: if you link J2K-Codec 1.9 statically with .NET using VS6.0 libraries and decode files from a memory buffer, you may experience memory leaks. If this is the case then just rename J2K_Image class in “j2k-codec.h” to any other name. VS.NET is getting confused and doesn't call object destructor properly.
09 May 2006 Version 1.9 is here!
Major features:
  • 16-bit version that supports up to 16 bits per component.
  • .NET static linking libraries.
  • Region of Interest (ROI).

Plus, we have created a special auto-test suit to batch-decode images, combining various options (i.e. “bpp”, “rl”, etc.).

So 78 carefully selected JPEG2000 files have been decoded into 1210 BMP files that were then visually tested for quality, one-by-one.

This approach allowed to find several minor, nasty bugs that remained undetected so far.

PRO version price increased from $149 to $179.
12 Mar 2006 Version 1.8 finished.
Major features:
  • Several .NET samples in C# and VB.NET.

  • Metadata extraction. Vertically down-sampled components support.
