Bug#741487: A useful fork for web authors wanting to optimize their images
While the name suggests that it's another general-purpose JPEG
library, it's actually closer to the jpegoptim optimization tool.
From the upstream README:
"'mozjpeg' is not intended to be a general JPEG library replacement.
It makes tradeoffs that are intended to benefit Web use cases and
focuses solely on improving encoding. It is best used as part of a Web
encoding workflow. For a general JPEG library (e.g. your system
libjpeg), especially if you care about decoding, we recommend
mozjpeg ships two binaries that allow one to recompress JPEG files so
that they become smaller:
I would personally like to use it in my web development projects, so
Pierre, if you'd like to reupload your package to mentors, I will take
a look at it.
