Update to libvips

Render comes with a 4 year old version of libvips. There have been a few requests to update it to a more modern version, is there any news on that? (I’m having to write extra code just to work around this)

Here are the other places people have asked for this:



We don’t have an ETA on when it will the update will be carried. At the moment I’d recommend using Docker for increased granularity on the version of libvips you want to use

RUN apt-get update && apt-get install -y libvips-dev libvips-tools

Should do the trick.

Jérémy, Render Support

I’d like to add support for a libvips update. The primary reason I use Render is so I don’t have to use Docker or mess around with any other devops tools. I just want to push to main and walk away.

I’d love to get a libvips update, if possible.
