A Fabulous Daala Holiday Update

Before we get into the update itself, yes, the level of magenta in that banner image got away from me just a bit. Then it was just begging for inappropriate abuse of a font...

Ahem.

Hey everyone! I just posted a Daala update that mostly has to do with still image performance improvements (yes, still image in a video codec. Go read it to find out why!). The update includes metric plots showing our improvement on objective metrics over the past year and relative to other codecs. Since objective metrics are only of limited use, there's also side-by-side interactive image comparisons against jpeg, vp8, vp9, x264 and x265.

The update text (and demo code) was originally for a July update, as still image work was mostly in the beginning of the year. That update get held up and hadn't been released officially, though it had been discovered by and discussed at forums like doom9. I regenerated the metrics and image runs to use latest versions of all the codecs involved (only Daala and x265 improved) for this official better-late-than-never progress report!
