1. GBM plugin 1.00 for Netscape/Mozilla/Firefox/SeaMonkey
(freely usable, see license included)

This is a plugin for the Webbrowsers Netscape, Mozilla, Firefox and SeaMonkey available for OS/2 and eComStation that extends them for the support of reading all bitmap formats supported by GBM.DLL.
It requires GBM.DLL 1.35 or higher. GBM 1.42 is recommended.

!!!Do not use GBM 1.41 any longer!!!

Note:
For multipage images so far only the first image is shown.
As most browsers support animated GIFs natively it's not a problem.

Notes for eComStation 1.2/1.2R users
------------------------------------
Please read the installation instructions. eCS 1.2/1.2R ships with an old GBM.DLL (1.12) which prevents loading of the new GBM.DLL (1.42). Please follow the instructions to use the new GBM.DLL for all programs as well as for eCS WPS features like bitmap previews.
If you cannot replace the eCS shipped GBM.DLL, please execute unlock x:os2dllgbm.dll from a command line. Then override the old GBM.DLL with the new one. Don't forget to reboot afterwards.


GBM.DLL 1.42 and GBM command line tools
---------------------------------------
(Public Domain)

The Generalised Bitmap Module (GBM) is a library capable of loading and saving bitmap files in a variety of popular and less popular bitmap file formats. Programs may be written to use this code, and thus be able to access a variety of file formats without actually knowing what format the pictures are in, or any details about file format itself.

In this version, extended BMP, PNG, TIF, PBM, PGM, PPM and PNM support is additionally included. PNG and TIF support also 16, 32, 48, 64 bpp colour depths with/without alpha channel. PPM supports also 48 bpp colour depth. BMP supports also OS/2 RLE24 and Windows 16/32 bpp RGB and BITFIELDS formats.

It comes with a useful set of command line bitmap manipulation tools.

Get package gbmos2_142_bin.zip from Hobbes.
It is also included in the WarpIN installation package (see below).


Enhanced GBMV2 Version 1.28
---------------------------
(Public Domain)

GBMV2 is a fast and simple bitmap viewer and editor for the
OS/2 and eCS Presentation Manager.

Enhanced release of the GBMV2-Viewer from the GBMOS2PM package:
* An English and a German version of GBMV2 is included.
* An English and a German version of the GBM file dialog is included.

GBMDLG.DLL has been extended by:
* Bitmap preview within the file dialog
* Redesign to fit eComStation file dialog style

Several extensions for keyboard shortcuts have been added.
Both parts got new resources that better fit to the Warp 4
and eComStation look & feel. Resources for fonts 8.Helv and
9.WarpSans for both, German and English are available in the
sources package.

Get package gbmos2pm128_bin.zip from Hobbes.
It is also included in the WarpIN installation package (see below).
