Is bug #213 'critical' or 'must fix' to you?
I would like to use QGIS, but I do not because QGIS lacks a basic,
necessary function: the ability to display a raster image at 100%,
meaning one pixel from the image file is drawn as one pixel on the
display. This functionality should be supplemented by the ability
to display an image at 200% and 50%. I wrote about this missing
feature, which is a huge problem for me, back on 6 July 2006, and
it is listed as bug #213. I am not aware of anything being done
about it. I am willing to donate $200.00 for this problem to be
fixed this month.
This bug was moved to the 0.9 release. This is because it is a new
feature request, not a bug. While I agree this is important
functionality and I definitely want it in QGIS, we are in a feature
freeze for 0.8. We have been slowly and painstakingly moving towards
release. Introducing new features always has the potential to
destabilize the code base.
That said, there is one other option. If one of the developers wants
to implement this functionality as a plugin (e.g. "Raster Tools" or
some such), it can be included in the 0.8 release. This assumes that
implementing the plugin will require no changes to the "core"
libraries. The plugin could be the basis for additional raster
functions in future versions.
