Hi Max,

I see that your patch was successfully reviewed and landed in trunk, so I assume it does not break "plain" PNG decoding :)

If I understand correctly your goal is to improve adoption of APNG. In this case you may want to backport your patch for QtWebKit, which has some user base on Linux. It is used in Konqueror, Reconq, Otter Browser, Qutebrowser. However, I'm not sure how this change can find its way to Linux users because AFAIK it requires libpng patch which won't be allowed by distributions.
