# JPEG XL software support

This document attempts to keep track of software that is using libjxl to support JPEG XL.
This list serves several purposes:

- thank/acknowledge other projects for integrating jxl support
- point end-users to software that can read/write jxl
- keep track of the adoption status of jxl
- in case of a (security) bug in libjxl, it's easier to see who might be affected and check if they are updated (in case they use static linking)

Please add missing software to this list.
