5Iolayer:
6- Add scalar/mmap to iolayer
7- Add close() code to iolayer
8- Merge callback interface into iolayer
9- Add interface for writing to all formats but tiff
10- Add interface for reading for png (started),
11 gif (merge with cb patch), ppm and raw
12- Add new tests once all formats support io_layer
13- Implment the maxread threshold (Indicates how far
14 a library can read before it indicates that it's done).

17Enhanched internal structure:
18
19MultiImage & metadata support:
20- Figure what interface should be between C and perl?
21- How to store data in the C interface for tags/metadata?
22 Support tiff's madness, i.e. tags and options.
23- Error handling, make a general i_errstr object and arrange
24 such that each image has an i_errstr object to hold its
25 local errors?
26- SEE design/represent.txt for proposed new structure and
27 interface design that takes these factors into account.
28
29New Features:
30- Transforms, interpolated multidimensional lookup tables.
31 Usefull for CMYK <-> RGB table lookup.
32
33- Finish antialiased filled polygon function.
34
35
36Clean up:
37- Make sure everything is doable with the OO interface
38 i_flood_fill() f. example.
39- Split the other classes into seperate files
40 Imager::Font::TT, Imager::Font::T1, currently
41 an if statement is used to choose what code to
42 run.
43- Compile with memory debugging enabled and fix all leaks
44
45- dynaload.c is strongly tied to perl
46
47- Add mycalloc() and myrealloc() to the malloc() wrappers.
48
49- should we overload <=> or cmp for Imager::Color objects?
50 too many worms, leave it out
51
52- should the interlace option for reading raw images have
53 symbolic names in the OO interface?
54
55
56
57Format specific issues:
58- should i_readgif returned colormap be an arrayref of
59 Imager::Color objects? Note that this will break
60 compatibility with previous releases.
61
62- if gif_delays is a number instead of an arrayref, use that
63 number for each frame
64
65- provide patches for libgif and libungif that fix their bugs
66 and give a useful extension interface. Probe for the
67 installation of the patches in Makefile.PL to let gif.c
68 know what features it can use.
69
70- Add options for pnm, writer to save in any of the p1..P6
71 formats. Even if the input has 1 channel, write 3 and such
72 cases. Also allow ascii mode. Need to be able to write
73 pbm images which needs ties to the quantization code.
74
75
76Documentation:
77- Add to the documentation
78- Write a tutorial?
79- Write a guide to installing the helper libraries
80- Go through the entire project and add comments in pod
81 so doco.perl can be used to read them.
