Libpng 1.6.10 - March 6, 2014
This is a public release of libpng, intended for use in production codes.
Files available for download:
Source files with LF line endings (for Unix/Linux) and with a
"configure" script
libpng-1.6.10.tar.xz (LZMA-compressed, recommended)
Source files with CRLF line endings (for Windows), without the
"configure" script
lpng1610.7z (LZMA-compressed, recommended)
Other information:
libpng-1.6.10-*.asc (armored detached GPG signatures)
Changes since the last public release (1.6.9):
Backported changes from libpng-1.7.0beta30 and beta31:
Fixed a large number of instances where PNGCBAPI was omitted from
function definitions.
Added pngimage test program for png_read_png() and png_write_png()
with two new test scripts.
Removed dependence on !PNG_READ_EXPAND_SUPPORTED for calling
png_set_packing() in png_read_png().
Fixed combination of ~alpha with shift. On read invert alpha, processing
occurred after shift processing, which causes the final values to be
outside the range that should be produced by the shift. Reversing the
order on read makes the two transforms work together correctly and mirrors
the order used on write.
Do not read invalid sBIT chunks. Previously libpng only checked sBIT
values on write, so a malicious PNG writer could therefore cause
the read code to return an invalid sBIT chunk, which might lead to
application errors or crashes. Such chunks are now skipped (with
Make png_read_png() and png_write_png() prototypes in png.h depend
Support builds with unsupported PNG_TRANSFORM_* values. All of the
PNG_TRANSFORM_* values are always defined in png.h and, because they
are used for both read and write in some cases, it is not reliable
to #if out ones that are totally unsupported. This change adds error
detection in png_read_image() and png_write_image() to do a
png_app_error() if the app requests something that cannot be done
and it adds corresponding code to pngimage.c to handle such options
by not attempting to test them.
Moved redefines of png_error(), png_warning(), png_chunk_error(),
and png_chunk_warning() from pngpriv.h to png.h to make them visible
to libpng-calling applications.
Moved OS dependent code from arm/arm_init.c, to allow the included
implementation of the ARM NEON discovery function to be set at
build-time and provide sample implementations from the current code in the
contrib/arm-neon subdirectory. The __linux__ code has also been changed to
compile and link on Android by using /proc/cpuinfo, and the old linux code
is in contrib/arm-neon/linux-auxv.c. The new code avoids POSIX and Linux
dependencies apart from opening /proc/cpuinfo and is C90 compliant.
Check for info_ptr == NULL early in png_read_end() so we don't need to
run all the png_handle_*() and depend on them to return if info_ptr == NULL.
This improves the performance of png_read_end(png_ptr, NULL) and makes
it more robust against future programming errors.
Check for __has_extension before using it in pngconf.h, to
support older Clang versions (Jeremy Sequoia).
Treat CRC error handling with png_set_crc_action(), instead of with
png_set_benign_errors(), which has been the case since libpng-1.6.0beta18.
Use a user warning handler in contrib/gregbook/readpng2.c instead of default,
so warnings will be put on stderr even if libpng has CONSOLE_IO disabled.
Added png_ptr->process_mode = PNG_READ_IDAT_MODE in png_push_read_chunk
after recognizing the IDAT chunk, which avoids an infinite loop while
reading a datastream whose first IDAT chunk is of zero-length.
This fixes CERT VU#684412 and CVE-2014-0333.
Don't recognize known sRGB profiles as sRGB if they have been hacked,
but don't reject them and don't issue a copyright violation warning.
Moved some documentation from png.h to libpng.3 and libpng-manual.txt
Minor editing of contrib/arm-neon/README and contrib/examples/*.c
Fixed typos in the manual and in scripts/pnglibconf.dfa (CFLAGS -> CPPFLAGS
Un-deprecated png_data_freer().

Installing libpng
On Unix/Linux and similar systems, you can simply type
./configure [--prefix=/path]
make check
make install
and ignore the rest of this document.
If configure does not work on your system, or if you have a need to
change or, and you have a reasonably
up-to-date set of tools, running ./ in a git clone before
running ./configure may fix the problem. To be really sure that you
aren't using any of the included pre-built scripts, you can do this:
./configure --enable-maintainer-mode
make maintainer-clean
./ --maintainer --clean
./ --maintainer
./configure [--prefix=/path] [other options]
make install
make check
Instead, you can use one of the custom-built makefiles in the
"scripts" directory
cp scripts/makefile.system makefile
make test
make install
The files that are presently available in the scripts directory
are listed and described in scripts/README.txt.
Or you can use one of the "projects" in the "projects" directory.
Before installing libpng, you must first install zlib, if it
is not already on your system. zlib can usually be found
wherever you got libpng. zlib can be placed in another directory,
at the same level as libpng.
If your system already has a preinstalled zlib you will still need
to have access to the zlib.h and zconf.h include files that
correspond to the version of zlib that's installed.
If you wish to test with a particular zlib that is not first in the
standard library search path, put ZLIBLIB, ZLIBINC, CPPFLAGS, LDFLAGS,
and LD_LIBRARY_PATH in your environment before running "make test"
or "make distcheck":
ZLIBLIB=/path/to/lib export ZLIBLIB
ZLIBINC=/path/to/include export ZLIBINC
If you are using one of the makefile scripts, put ZLIBLIB and ZLIBINC
in your environment and type "make ZLIBLIB=$ZLIBLIB ZLIBINC=$ZLIBINC test".
If you want to use "cmake" (see, type
make install
You can rename the directories that you downloaded (they
might be called "libpng-x.y.z" or "libpngNN" and "zlib-1.2.7"
or "zlib127") so that you have directories called "zlib" and "libpng".
Your directory structure should look like this:
.. (the parent directory)
libpng (this directory)
INSTALL (this file)
CMakeLists.txt => "cmake" script
configuration files:, configure,,,, config.guess,, missing,,, aclocal.m4,, config.sub,
depcomp, install-sh, mkinstalldirs,
*.def (module definition files)
If the line endings in the files look funny, you may wish to get the other
distribution of libpng. It is available in both tar.gz (UNIX style line
endings) and zip (DOS style line endings) formats.
If you are building libpng with MSVC, you can enter the
libpng projects\visualc6 or visualc71 directory and follow the instructions
in README.txt.
Otherwise enter the zlib directory and follow the instructions in zlib/README,
then come back here and run "configure" or choose the appropriate
makefile.sys in the scripts directory.
Copy the file (or files) that you need from the
scripts directory into this directory, for example
MSDOS example: copy scripts\makefile.msc makefile
UNIX example: cp scripts/makefile.std makefile
Read the makefile to see if you need to change any source or
target directories to match your preferences.
Then read pnglibconf.dfa to see if you want to make any configuration
Then just run "make" which will create the libpng library in
this directory and "make test" which will run a quick test that reads
the "pngtest.png" file and writes a "pngout.png" file that should be
identical to it. Look for "9782 zero samples" in the output of the
test. For more confidence, you can run another test by typing
"pngtest pngnow.png" and looking for "289 zero samples" in the output.
Also, you can run "pngtest -m contrib/pngsuite/*.png" and compare
your output with the result shown in contrib/pngsuite/README.
Most of the makefiles will allow you to run "make install" to
put the library in its final resting place (if you want to
do that, run "make install" in the zlib directory first if necessary).
Some also allow you to run "make test-installed" after you have
run "make install".
Further information can be found in the README and libpng-manual.txt
files, in the individual makefiles, in png.h, and the manual pages
libpng.3 and png.5.
Using the ./configure script -- 16 December 2002.
The ./configure script should work compatibly with what scripts/makefile.*
did, however there are some options you might need to add to configure
explicitly, which previously was done semi-automatically (if you didn't edit
scripts/makefile.* yourself, that is)
CFLAGS="-Wall -O -funroll-loops \
-malign-loops=2 -malign-functions=2" ./configure --prefix=/usr/include \
--with-pkgconfigdir=/usr/lib/pkgconfig --includedir=/usr/include
You can alternatively specify --includedir=/usr/include, /usr/local/include,
/usr/include/libpng%NN%, or whatever.
If you find that the configure script is out-of-date or is not supporting
your platform properly, try running to regenerate "configure",
"", and the other configuration files. Then try configure again.
This copy of the libpng notices is provided for your convenience. In case of
any discrepancy between this copy and the notices in the file png.h that is
included in the libpng distribution, the latter shall prevail.
If you modify libpng you may insert additional notices immediately following
this sentence.

Name: libpng
Summary: The PNG reference library
Authors: Glenn Randers-Pehrson et al.
Version: 1.6.10
License: the libpng license (zlib-like); see LICENSE
Modified version: 1.6.10-optipng
- Added pnglibconf.h.optipng to allow a leaner and meaner libpng build.
- Added PNGLIBCONF_H_PREBUILT to scripts/makefile.* to allow the use of
user-supplied prebuilt config headers (such as pnglibconf.h.optipng).
- Silenced "unused parameter" build warnings.
TODO - list of things to do for libpng:
Final bug fixes.
Better C++ wrapper/full C++ implementation?
Fix problem with C++ and EXTERN "C".
cHRM transformation.
Remove setjmp/longjmp usage in favor of returning error codes.
Add "grayscale->palette" transformation and "palette->grayscale" detection.
Improved dithering.
Multi-lingual error and warning message support.
Complete sRGB transformation (presently it simply uses gamma=0.45455).
Make profile checking optional via a png_set_something() call.
Man pages for function calls.
Better documentation.
Better filter selection
(counting huffman bits/precompression? filter inertia? filter costs?).
Histogram creation.
Text conversion between different code pages (Latin-1 -> Mac and DOS).
Avoid building gamma tables whenever possible.
Use greater precision when changing to linear gamma for compositing against
background and doing rgb-to-gray transformation.
Investigate pre-incremented loop counters and other loop constructions.
Add interpolated method of handling interlacing.
Switch to the simpler zlib (zlib/libpng) license if legally possible.
Extend pngvalid.c to validate more of the libpng transformations.
