#35817 closed update (wontfix)

giflib 5

Port: giflib


giflib 5.0.0 was released in June 2012. Here's a patch to update the port. But it will not be committed.

giflib 5 has a different API than giflib 4. I haven't yet found a single port in MacPorts that uses giflib that is compatible with giflib 5. I began to file bug reports with the various projects. Here's the result:

So MacPorts will stay on giflib 4 until further notice.
