Owner

  • Release notes owner:

Current status

  • Targeted release: Fedora 28

  • Tracker bug: <will be assigned by the Wrangler>

Detailed Description

Update the giflib package to the latest giflib-5.x version (currently 5.1.4) and rebuild all dependencies. giflib-4.x is long since obsolete, and some packages are starting to drop support for giflib-4.x (i.e. leptonica). The update is being tested in this COPR repo.

Benefit to Fedora

Ship the latest giflib version.

- Rebuild all dependencies, possibly with some minor patching (porting, if necessary, is usually trivial, i.e.

+ DGifOpenFileName(fullname, NULL)

- DGifCloseFile(GifFile)
+ DGifCloseFile(GifFile, NULL)

- DGifOpenFileHandle(fh);
+ DGifOpenFileHandle(fh, NULL);
