#22 Re: PNG 8-Bit Alpha Translucency

As programmers, we often have to composite foreground images with background when designers use edge antialiasing. This makes individual images hard to move or change, though. If real 8-bit translucency were activated, such images would be more easily reusable and movable. It would make for a fundamental improvement in the manner in which programmers translate the work of designers to this medium.

I don't know if this is slated for the final release or not. It's been discussed at length in Bug #3013 and is apparently not considered a bug, but rather a feature request. It has been targeted for M20, but the way things are going I'd be surprised if there ever is an M20. If this is going to make it, it's got to be in by beta.

Here's hoping.
