    Ah, found the executables, I was blind, sorry.

    Let me rephrase it - until they are more widely supported (e.g. in image viewers or in cameras) they are nice for experimenting but we should've had a JPG successor for at least 20 years now but we still don't. Apple did something with HEIC but that's it, unfortunately.


    OK, sounds good enough to give it a try as well. Any thoughts about future compatibility? Will I be able to open the archives in ten years? Are the involved programs standalone downloadable exe's or are they some sort of internal part of Windows 10?
    There is a great replacement for jpg right now. It's called jpeg-xl. There's a lot of chat about it on this forum.

    About future compatibility? Yes and no. wimlib. tar and fxz are open source. Srep and fazip too but I haven't had much luck compiling them. And they're abandonware, so not great.
