- For those users unable to use the hardware-accelerated display mode available in FastPictureViewer, the program now uses a better (but slightly slower) resampling algorithm when "high quality" is selected and the GPU acceleration is disabled (in DirectX hardware-accelerated mode, the pixel smoothing is governed by, and made to the best of, the display card's abilities). The new algorithm produces substantially less resizing artefacts at reasonable speed expenses.
- Added a large-size XMP information head up display, following a forum suggestion, with large star-rating display and numeric rating/label/urgency:
The image above is a screenshot of FastPictureViewer 1.0 (115) displaying a 12.1MP image (taken with a Nikon D3s camera at 6400 ISO!), and reduced on-the-fly to fit the tiny window size by the new software algorithm mentionned above.
The new version is available now from the download page.
