Changelog image

Background Removal Available in Beta

  • A new background removal API is available in limited release for our Enterprise customers. Reach out to your Account Manager if you would like to test this new feature.

Support for Digital Ocean, Linode, and Wasabi

  • You can now create Sources with three new S3-compatible source types: Digital Ocean, Linode, and Wasabi. S3-compatible Source types have the advantage of allowing you to keep your assets private and only permitting access via imgix. Read the documentation for Source creation or migrate an existing Web Folder Source.

Thumbnails for Video

  • Easily create thumbnails, GIFs, or storyboards from videos processed via the imgix video rendering API. Read more about it and see example usage here.

New ix-player Video Player

  • We listened to your feedback and re-architected our video player to split the core of the player and the player itself into two packages.
  • ix-video is now a slimmed-down wrapper on top of the built-in <video> element with HLS support and a much smaller download size.
  • ix-player has all of the bells and whistles of a fully-featured video player, including built-in support for our new thumbnail, GIF preview, and storyboard feature set.
  • You can check out a demo of the new packages on our video solutions page or on GitHub.

Added New Japanese Font Options

  • We have added over 50 Japanese font options for use in the text rendering API. See the complete list of available fonts here.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue where some large AVIFs were not rendering correctly.
  • Fixed an issue where some corrupt images were not rendering correctly.
