pngquant is a command-line utility and a library for lossy
compression of PNG images.
The conversion reduces file sizes by converting images to 1/2/4/8-bit
paletted PNG format with alpha channel (often 60-80% smaller than
24/32-bit PNG files). Generated images are compatible with all modern
web browsers, and have better fallback in IE6 than 24-bit PNGs.

- Update to version 2.11.2:
+ added support for `-o -`.
+ windows/JNI build fixes.
- Changes from version 2.8:
+ libimagequant is a separate project.
+ --strip option to disable copying of PNG metadata.
- Changes from version 2.7:
+ improved dithering of saturated and semitransparent colors.
+ fixed order of log output when using openmp.
+ improved quality sanity check in --skip-if-larger option.
+ disabled palette post-processing on colors from --map option to
preserve them exactly.
- Changes from version 2.6:
+ when source image has no color profile information, the output
won't have either.
- Changes from version 2.5:
+ replaced color search algorithm with vantage point tree, which
is much faster and more reliable.
+ deprecated IE6 workaround.
+ warn when compiled without color profile support.
+ Rust API for libimagequant.
- Changes from version 2.4:
