Hello there.

    Hi Jose, here are two project ideas for GSoC 2020 for the XaoS

Just added both ideas to the page.
    - XaoS
    - Enhance export to support high quality output
    - Render very large size images as TIFF files to print artworks as e.g. 1 x
    2 metre 400 dpi CPrints. Wide colour gamut e.g. ProFoto and Adobe1998
    colour profiles. Cropping/in-proportion sizing. Batch output using previous
    files in native XaoS format. As an example please see the output option in
    e.g. Capture One Pro.
    - Good knowledge of C++ programming.
    - address@hidden
    - XaoS
    - Support for arbitrary precision
    - XaoS currently cannot support very deep zooms because the 80-bit floating
    point arithmetic used runs out of precision before too long. It should be
    possible to add arbitrary precision to XaoS using the MPFR library (, or a different one if it is not fast enough to
    support real-time zooming. See also, in particular
    - Good knowledge of C++ programming.
    - address@hidden
    Thank you!
    Best, Zoltan
