Name        : xloadimage
Product     : Fedora 17
Version     : 4.1
Release     : 13.fc17
URL         : http://www.frostbytes.com/~jimf/xloadimage.html
Summary     : Image viewer and processor
Description :
Xloadimage is a utility which will view many different types of images
under X11, load images onto the root window, or dump processed images
into one of several image file formats. The current version can read
many different image file types.

A variety of options are available to modify images prior to viewing.
These options include clipping, dithering, depth reduction, zoom (either
X or Y axis independently or both at once), brightening or darkening,
and image merging. When applicable, these options are done automatically
(eg a color image to be displayed on a monochrome screen will be
dithered automatically).

Update Information:

Fix memory leak caused by opening a lot of images, then cycling through them with the N key.
Enable support for sub-second delay.
