Re: EOL2 - updated 23.12.2017

I have considered that, but so far I've decided against it for a couple of reasons: Quite a few people (I count more than 10) already have EOL2 code (at least some version of it). All of them are people who know how to code, but they lack the time and/or motivation to continue EOL2. I base this assu...

Not sure, but I'd guess a multipage tiff doesn't do any kind of delta encoding between frames. At least couldn't find any hints from google. It's probably just "multiple files in one".

The zip format for lgr probably helps reduce the total size, but hard to say how much.
