New libjpeg-turbo packages are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The libjpeg-turbo packages contain a library of functions for manipulating JPEG images. They also contain simple client programs for accessing the libjpeg functions. These packages provide the same functionality and API as libjpeg but with better performance.
This enhancement update adds the libjpeg-turbo packages to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6. (BZ#788687)
All users who require libjpeg-turbo are advised to install these new packages.
