It's Skippy, the Y2K Weiner Dog!
John's new 'thing'
Greetings, and welcome to The Official Home of XV. Here you'll find the latest info on
all things XV, the official sources, a cool on-line manual, handy-dandy bug fixes, and so
In short, all the things you'd expect to find on an official home page.
The Dogs of XV (Bradley yammers on
and on about his bassets...)
|You can now purchase
a copy of xv with a major credit card, perfectly suited for all your
impulse-buying needs! If you've been putting off registering your copy because of
the annoyance (or near impossibility, if you're not in the U.S.) of sending me a
check, well, now's an excellent time to get on with it!
||Displaying PostScript files in xv is (was)
a potential security risk. Who knew? Get the patch!
XV running inside a Netscape browser window? That's the damndest thing!
Can't display 32-bit BMP files generated by certain programs? Suck on this!
Added a pointer to an updated version of the PNG

Hey, who wants to run XV on BeOS? Check this

for RedHat Linux (i386).
A new bug-fix - fixes an image display
problem that would occur on certain 12-, 15-, or 16-bit X displays.
Added a link to giftrans, a
useful little Unix program that can transparentify a GIF file. Damned useful, since xv
Added a pointer to XVscan, Sean
Reifschneider's neato-keen version of XV with scanner support.
I've packaged up the HTML version of the xv manual into a gzip'ed tar file. Suitable
for mirroring on your local site, for all the obvious reasons. Please do so!
