libjpeg-turbo 1.4.90 Description:
libjpeg-turbo is an open source, cross-platform and completely free software engineered to provide a high-speed version of the original libjpeg library software, specifically crafted for x86 and x86-64 processors, which use SIMD (Single Instruction, Multiple Data) instructions, such as SSE2, MMX and NEON, to accelerate baseline JPEG decompression and compression. The software is an extremely fast JPEG image codec that is generally 2-4x faster than the unmodified version of libjpeg. The project was originally based on the libjpeg/SIMD project created by Miyasaka Masaru. This turbo version of the libjpeg library also implements the traditional libjpeg API, as well as the straightforward TurboJPEG API. It features colorspace extensions, which allows users to compress from or decompress to big-endian and 32-bit pixel buffers (XBGR, RGBX, etc.), and a full-featured Java interface.
