The libheif shared library must be named `libheif` in order for it to be found by P/Invoke.
If your program or OS uses a different library name, you will need to use SetDllImportResolver to redirect searches for `libheif` to the appropriate library.

The minimum supported libheif version is 1.9.0.

v2.0.0 - 2020-11-11


-   The thumbnail parameter in the EncodeImage method has been renamed to image.


-   The ReadFromFile method, use the HeifContext(string) constructor overload instead.
-   The ReadFromMemory method, use the HeifContext(byte[]) constructor overload instead.


-   A SetMaximumImageSizeLimit method to the HeifContext class.
-   A WriteToStream method to the HeifContext class.
-   A few HeifContext constructor overloads that read the image data.
   -   HeifContext(string) replaces the ReadFromFile method.
   -   HeifContext(byte[]) replaces the ReadFromMemory method.
   -   HeifContext(Stream, bool) reads from a Stream, and optionally
       leaves the stream open after the HeifContext has been disposed.


-   The SetParameter(string, string) overload will now try to convert
   Boolean and integer values to the correct type, an exception will be
   thrown if the conversion fails.
-   GetExifMetadata() will now return null if the TIFF header offset is
   not valid.
-   Mark the HeifItemId structure as readonly.
-   ReadFromMemory now throws an exception if the array length is zero.
-   Improved parameter validation for the AddPlane method.
-   Reduce memory usage when reading a HEIF image from a byte array.


-   A number of issues with the documentation.
