    David Scott has written a bijective BWT transform, which brings all the advantages of bijectiveness to BWT based compressors. Among other things, making BWT more suitable for compression-before-encryption and also give (slightly) better compression.

    Jarek Duda’s “Asymmetric Binary System” promises to be an alternate to arithmetic coding, having all the advantages, but being much simpler. Matt has coded a PAQ based compressor using ABS for back-end encoding. Update: Andrew Polar has written an alternate implementation of ABS.

New Version of NXPowerLite

Posted by Sachin Garg on 24th September 2005 | Permanent Link

NXPowerLite optimises PowerPoint presentations by compressing the graphics and embedded documents contained within them, making them easier to handle, distribute and share.

Neuxpower also announced NXPowerLite 2.0 Integrated Edition at the show - a special version of NXPowerLite that lets users optimise their presentations from the PowerPoint menu bar or by rightclicking them in Windows Explorer. Tommy commented “Many NXPowerLite users love the fact that it is a stand-alone tool that makes no changes to their PowerPoint installation. But some people have told us that they would prefer to optimize their presentations from within PowerPoint. With NXPowerLite 2.0 we offer you the choice.”

    I often (hundreds of times) have jpg files that the background is erased from by conversion to png. Is there a way that release 2.0 works with .png files without restoring the white backgrounds but leaves them erased?

  2. Andrew Molyneux Says:


    Yes, NXPowerLite 2.0 fully supports PNG images with alpha transparency.
