bug#651: suggestion: replace xpm images format by png

Date: Tue, 5 Aug 2008 06:52:27 -0700


Summary: Suggesting that xpm format images used in emacs be replaced by png.

Detail:

In emacs, it seems the default image format is xpm.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X_PixMap

For example, the emacs logo, widget graphics, all seems to be xpm format at dir “etc/images/”.

The xpm image format is some 19 years old tech based on ascii text, very bulky. png or svg are perhaps good candidates.
