libpng version 1.2.41 was released today.  This is a code cleanup version with no new features except for a new set of warnings that are intended to help with migration to future versions.  libpng version 1.4.0 should be out in about two weeks.  I recommend testing with 1.2.41 but not checking it in, then update to libpng-1.4.0 and check that in.  libpng-1.4.0 will have some new features that are relevant here, including a more robust defense against DoS attacks using small files that decompress to very large ones.

Libpng 1.2.42 will be out soon.  It does not offer anything significant over  version 1.2.40 for Mozilla, so I recommend skipping it as well as 1.2.41 and waiting for 1.4.0.
If all goes according to plan, libpng-1.4.0 will be released on January 3, 2010.

Glenn, is this ready to be reviewed for inclusion into mozilla-central?

Update libpng in trunk to version 1.4.0

@reed, I guess it is.  No bug reports have come in to the PNG group yet.

In this part, maybe put the two aInputFormat checks on their own lines, starting with aInputFormat ==, then put the aStride check on its own line, vertically aligned with the second ( in ((aInputFormat?

May as well fix this bracing style to put opening brace on the if line and closing brace on its own.

r+ on the libpr0n changes, rs=joe on the libpng changes.

Update libpng in trunk to version 1.4.0 (v01) (checked in)

Since joe already r+'d this, if you'll toss it to the try server, I can land it for you if everything comes out green.
Unit tests look OK with the v01 patch.  All passed on Linux, one failed on WINNT but other people's trials seem to be failing the same one today so it's probably not related to this patch.

Noticed we have a configure check for libpng's version. We should probably bump it, especially since 1.4.0 changes so much.

Bump MOZPNG in

Right.  The older versions of libpng will work (if patched with APNG), but the comment in "configure" says that MOZPNG is the version number included with mozilla, which is now 10400.  It's used, however, as the minimum acceptable version.

Today the Tryserver is building ok on all platforms but I'm getting a tremendous number of failures on the unit tests.
The failures I mentioned in comment #14 seem to be unrelated to libpng.  I've just done another Tryserver run which passed all unit tests.

joe: are we going to land this on the 1.9.2 branch? If not we should at least upgrade to 1.2.40 (bug 504805) which unfortunately was blocking1.9.2-, which effectively caused the UMR fix in bug 492200 to regress between 1.9.1 and 1.9.2 (we didn't land that small patch since we expected to take 504805).

Should we upgrade the 1.9.1 branch to either of these?

We should not land this on 1.9.2. We should take the smaller patches on 1.9.2.
Marking "wontfix" for 1.9.1 for now. If we need a security fix from that version of libpng in the future we can look at it case-by-case whether we take a small patch or bite the bullet and upgrade.
