Version 12.1 of the LEADTOOLS C++ Class Library has changed from version 12 as follows:
LEADTOOLS now supports the J2K and JP2 JPEG 2000 file formats. (JPEG 2000 Plug In only)
Please note that the vector file format support previously provided by the LEADTOOLS File Format Plug ins is now provided through the LEADTOOLS Vector View Plug in. Therefore, the L_SUPPORT_VECTOR_DWG, L_SUPPORT_VECTOR_DWF, L_SUPPORT_VECTOR_DXF, L_SUPPORT_VECTOR_MISC and L_SUPPORT_VECTOR_ALL constants are now obsolete. If these constants are currently in your code, they will continue to work in LEADTOOLS 12.1. However, you should consider adding the LEADTOOLS Vector View Plug in or upgrading to the LEADTOOLS Vector Imaging Pro toolkit.
Vector support can now be unlocked for viewing only. Please note that if vector viewing support is unlocked using L_SUPPORT_VECTOR_VIEW, vector editing functions will return ERROR_VECTOR_LOCKED.
LEADTOOLS can now convert from V4 and V5 DIBs.
DICOM now supports Structured IODs.
LEADTOOLS can now convert from JPEG compressed DIBs.
LEADTOOLS can now convert from RLE4 and RLE8 compressed DIBs.
