The main reason for dropping xv is neither that it's old nor that it does not compile on Sarge - even though both applies.

The main reason is its license (See http://www.trilon.com/xv/pricing.html):

If you use xv in the course of doing your work, whatever your 'work' may happen to be, you must register your copy of xv.


If there's enough interest, GSI could buy a site license - given there's enough money in the 2007 IT departments budget. Rolling Eyes

Personally I rather fancy gqview. Razz
