We are pleased to announce that Jpylyzer 2.1 is now available. Jpylyzer is an open source validator and feature extractor for JP2 images, and part of the OPF reference toolset.
This is a maintenance release consisting of minor changes, including:
- Detailed reporting of packet level codestream markers, selectable by the user.
- Bug fixes.
- Documentation improvements.
- Improvements to the testing and release process.
Users should be aware this is the last Jpylyzer release that will be compatible with Python 2.7. Maintenance of Python 2.7 was halted more than two years ago and we strongly urge users to upgrade to Python 3.
Download the software and read the release notes here.
We encourage you to download and test this release. Please see our User Manual for guidance on installing and using jpylyzer.
We will continue internal testing of the release candidate and there may be a few small changes before the public production release.
