Update libheif to 1.7.0

Authored by kyrios123 on Sat, Jun 20, 2:25 PM.



Support for reading and writing AVIF (8 bit) images through libaom has been added.
Other encoders/decoders can be added with the plugin architecture.
Decoders don't need any code change to also read AVIF images.
Encoders can reuse the existing HEIF code and simply use heif_compression_AV1 to output AVIF.

Other changes:

  • HDR image rotation
  • HDR to 8 bit conversion
  • accept images with only the 'mif1' brand
  • bug fixes

Test Plan

Convert a .heic file to .jpg with imagemagick

Also build against gdk-pixbuf

Now i see gdkpixbuf loader is included for the first time, so I hope this will make possible to view HEIC file directly from eog or gpicview without convert into JPG. I suggest to add this "eog a_image.heic or gpicview a_image.heic" into TEST PLAN
