"Jasper St. Pierre who we're usually talking about on Phoronix due to
his GNOME contributions related to Wayland support, shared today he's
come up with a new animated image format to compete with GIF.
While GIF is technologically out-of-date with its compression support
and other features, alternative animated image file formats like APNG
and MNG haven't taken off. However, Jasper ended up devising a new
image format called XNG. XNG doesn't impose any restrictions, can
support more complex functionality, and will work existing HTML5
browsers of today. "
