2/28/2012 -PMView Pro v3.65
The following features are new in PMView v3.65:
Saving, TGA: Previous versions of PMView always stored a full 256-entry color map when saving TGA files that are 256 or fewer colors, thus producing up to 768 bytes of unnecessary data in the TGA file. This has been changed and PMView will now only write as many color map entries as needed. In addition to this, when saving a grayscale image, PMView will now use TGA type 3 to avoid the need for a color map. For compatibility with legacy applications, a new TGA save option "Store full color map" has been added.
The following bugs and problems are fixed in PMView v3.65:
Saving, TIFF: Saving a TIFF using CCITT FAX3 or FAX4 compression and setting the Strip size to "Single strip" incorrectly produces a file with two strips.
Saving, TGA: When using the TGA RLE option, PMView encoded run-length packets across scan lines as is allowed by the TGA file format specification in Appendix C of the Truevision Technical Guide. However, the more recent TGA v2.0 specification states that this should never be done. This version of PMView has been changed to comply with the TGA v2.0 specification and the RLE implementation has been improved overall.
Saving, IFF: Saving a blank image (an image with just one color) causes PMView to hang.
Saving, IFF: PMView fails to add a padding byte to the BODY chunk when the size is not divisible by two. As a result, PMView will give a premature end-of-file error when reading back the file.
Saving: The Packbits encoder used in the IFF, MAC, PIC, and TIFF formats has been improved.
