go-iiif version 2.0
I am happy to announce that go-iiif version 2.0 has been released. The biggest change in this release is that go-iiif no longer requires the libvips image processing library, by default. As of version 2.0 go-iiif can do all its image processing using native (Go) code. The absence of external dependencies means that go-iiif tools can be compiled in to standalone applications that can be run even if Go isn’t installed on the same computer.
