feh – a fast and light image viewer

feh is an X11 image viewer aimed mostly at console users. Unlike most other viewers, it does not have a fancy GUI, but simply displays images. It is controlled via commandline arguments and configurable key/mouse actions.

It is released under a variant of the MIT license. For anything feh-related, you're welcome to join #feh on irc.oftc.net.

feh v3.0

2018-11-09

feh-3.0.tar.bz2 (signature)

  • Remove deprecated webcam scripts (feh-cam and gen-cam-menu)
  • Remove deprecated collage mode (-c/--collage)
  • Remove deprecated option --cycle-once(use --on-last-slide=quit instead)
  • Remove deprecated option --menu-bg
  • Change default save_filelist key from "f" to "L" (mnemonic: fileList)
  • Change default toggle_fullscreen key from "v" to "f" as this is also used by mplayer, mpv and similar
  • flip and rotation (keys "<", ">", "|", and "_") no longer change the underlying file. This leaves delete ("Ctrl+Delete") as the only destructive action which is enabled by default
  • Add option --edit, which makes flip and rotation change the underlying file as well as the displayed image. This was the default behaviour in feh 1.x and 2.x
