[edit] History

FLIF was first announced in 2015, and the first stable version (named FLIF16) was released in 2016. Note that FLIF files or software created before about 2016-08 are likely to be incompatible with the current FLIF format. The creator, Jon Sneyers, later created another graphic format, FUIF, designed for responsive web design.

[edit] Identification

FLIF files begin with ASCII "FLIF".

The byte at offset 4 is one of the characters from the ASCII string "134ACDQSTacd".

The byte at offset 5 is one of the characters from the ASCII string "012".
