Converseen 0.9.10.0: New Features
Since it’s a minor release, there are not many updates in this release. The highlighted change include the improved WebP image quality settings. WebP is the next-gen image format developed by Google for faster page loads on websites.
You can now choose the quality settings in this release while converting to WebP images since it supports lossy and lossless compression. Also, this iteration includes the compression method and the dithering processing option for WebP images.
Furthermore, Converseen now enables you to remove the EXIF metadata from the images using ImageMagick -strip function with the -auto-orient operator.
So, those are the two key changes in this release.
