            Critical Dependencies

            Imlib makes image loading incredibly easier for
            both the user and developer of programs
            that display images, however the installation
            difficulties are extreme and many of Imlib's mandatory dependencies are on the edge of being abandoned or are never going to be completed.

            A significant number of programs depend on
            Imlib as of this writing, but many of Imlib's
            own dependencies (such as the font library)
            are not even compilable on UNIXes. To worsen
            this stress, Imlib itself is not being maintained
            enough to keep up with these issues. If one
            of Imlib's dependencies is abandoned, Imlib
            becomes completely useless.

            I cannot stress it enough that Imlib really
            needs better maintainance, along with more
            sensitive and proficient management of its
            numerous mandatory dependencies... or perhaps make
            those dependencies optional instead of mandatory.
