fastiv is a fast image viewer, supporting BMP, PNG, GIF, JPEG, and optionally RAW pictures.
It is meant to be a viable replacement for Eye of GNOME, which is slow, likes to break on huge pictures, and its underlying gdk-pixbuf can only be made to use the broken libopenraw as of now.
Urgent blockers for the first stable version:
implement zoom and scrolling
some level of asynchronous loading and preloading, which becomes a difficult problem with network mounts, confusingly acting as fast devices
write a replacement for GNOME’s Nautilus in grid mode: read-only, with focus on staggered previews and minimising wasted space
display 16-bit pictures smoothly, using the 30-bit depth under X.org
make RAW as fast as it can possibly be
load everything that resembles a picture, potentially even play video
port to something less hostile than the current GNOME stack, such as SDL, although it may involve a lot of reimplemented code, or result in reduced functionality
fancy UI, focus solely on speed of use
memory efficiency, though preloading can cause some pressure
Regular releases are sporadic. git master should be stable enough. You can get a package with the latest development version from Archlinux’s AUR.
