Windows 7: APNG - The Animated PNG

APNG - The Animated PNG

Welcome to the APNG Project!
In late 2007, PHUG, an open source community had the opportunity to meet Andrew Smith one of the key developers of APNG. Eager to get involved and expand on the open source community, PHUG placed it's initiative into the contribution of the APNG open source project. Our goal is to educate both open source commercial developers and designers on the beneficial aspects of using the APNG specification. As this project evolves, we hope to expand and build on the ever growing open source community, with designers and developers devoted to producing APNGs, tutorials, workshops, and more. Our hopes are to eventually incorporate APNGs into much more than banners and ads, such as menu alternatives!

Key Features about APNG:

Animated PNG files that retain backward compatibility with non-animated PNG files
Adding support for 8-bit transparency and 24-bit images.
Smaller library size

To be honest I have absolutely no idea where to put this. Chances are I've put it in totally the wrong place.
