Bug#741487: A useful fork for web authors wanting to optimize their images


Sorry, I don't have the 1.0 package anymore. I can build a package based on mozjpeg 2.1 but I'm not sure how to do it so it does not conflict with libjpeg. (I assume you would want to install the mozjpeg utilities but not replace your system libjpeg.)

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 libjpeg-turbo."

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.
