The challenge is to come up with a good way to decide which reader to use when multiple different readers appear to support a particular file; see ticket #173 for more details.

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Severity set to fatal

We already support everything that Sanselan supports, so I see no value added in using this library.
