Exiv2 is a C++ library and a command line utility to manage image metadata.
It provides fast and easy read and write access to the Exif, IPTC and XMP
metadata of images in various formats
Exiv2 library provides:
* fast read and write access to the Exif, IPTC, and XMP metadata of an image
* an easy to use and extensively documented API
* conversions of Exif and IPTC metadata to XMP and vice versa
* a smart IPTC implementation that does not affect data that programs like
Photoshop store in the same image segment
* Exif Makernote support:
- Makernote tags can be read and written just like any other metadata
- a sophisticated write algorithm avoids corrupting the Makernote
* a simple interface to extract previews embedded in RAW images and Exif
* set and delete methods for Exif thumbnails

exiv2 (0.24-4) unstable; urgency=medium
* Team upload.
* Upload to unstable. (See #732957)
* Re-add the pkg-config dependency in libexiv2-dev, as there is still one
source relying on it.
2014-08-28 - Pino Toscano <>
exiv2 (0.24-3) experimental; urgency=medium
* Team upload.
* Integrate 0.23-1.1 NMU (thanks Wookey).
* Move the libjs-jquery, doxygen, graphviz build dependencies as
Build-Depend-Indep, as they are needed in indep-build only.
* Update libtool files for ppc64el. (Closes: #757412)
2014-01-17 - Pino Toscano <>
exiv2 (0.24-2) experimental; urgency=low
* Team upload.
* Update Vcs-* headers.
* Fix the replacement of the doxygen-generated jquery.js with a symlink to
the system copy:
- properly replace any version with a symlink
- remove usage of dh-linktree: drop libexiv2-doc.linktrees and the
dh-linktree build dependency
- make libexiv2-doc depend on libjs-jquery
* Improve the .install files:
- use exiv2.install to install the exiv2.1 man page
- make them a bit more explicit
- remove the "debian/tmp/" prefix from the installed files
- sort them
* Remove the libtool .la file instead of installing it; dependencies have to
be rebuilt for the SONAME bump anyway, so there is no risk for breakages.
* Remove the doxygen-generated *.map and *.md5 files from the -doc package.
* Add a lintian override in libexiv2-doc for the duplicated files
(image graphs, basically) generated by doxygen.
* Bump to the debhelper compatibility 9:
- bump compat to 9
- bump the debhelper build dependency to >= 9~
- stop manually specifying the build flags, they are handled automatically
- adjust the library paths in .install files and rules to the multiarch
- add Pre-Depends: ${misc:Pre-Depends} in libexiv2-13
* Mark libexiv2-13 and libexiv2-dbg as Multi-Arch: same.
* Tighten the exiv2 dependency on the same version of the libexiv2 library.
* Remove the extra "samples" subdirectory for the examples in libexiv2-dev.
* Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.5, no changes required.
* Do not compress .cpp files (found in examples).
* libexiv2-dev: stop depending on pkg-config, as this is no more needed now.
