Hello Python users and developers,
I'm happy to announce that pyexiv2 0.2.0 , codename "Commuting", was
released today, after almost two years of quite irregular development.
pyexiv2 is a python binding to exiv2 , the C++ library for
manipulation of EXIF, IPTC and XMP image metadata.
It is a python module that allows your python scripts to read *and*
write metadata (EXIF, IPTC, XMP, thumbnails) embedded in image files
(JPEG, TIFF, ...).
It is designed as a high-level interface to the functionalities offered
by libexiv2. Using python's built-in data types and standard modules, it
provides easy manipulation of image metadata.
This new release is an almost complete, not backward compatible, rewrite
of the 0.1 branch.
Among other things, it features:
- Support for reading and writing XMP metadata;
- Support for reading images from stream;
- A fully documented API (the documentation also includes a tutorial and
detailed instructions for developers);
- Compiled and tested on Linux and Windows;
- A battery of unit tests that reasonably covers the code.
