New functions let you select and manipulate a region within a bitmap.
New functions let you create and manipulate annotations that you can overlay on an image. This feature is available in Express editions.
The toolkit has been subdivided into a several need-specific DLLs that let you limit the size of your application by including only the applicable DLLs.
The toolkit now fully supports the development of multi-threaded applications for Windows NT and Windows 95.
The toolkit can now read Progressive JPEG, and it can read and write Windows BMP files in all possible color resolutions.
