"For the decoder, Koleszar highlights the work of Jeff Muizelaar, Johan Koenig, and Tim Terriberry. While he doesn't specifically ask for help on any one item as he did with the encoder, he does highlight some of the ongoing work. Terriberry is working had on the bool decoder, which is called multiple times per each bit in the input stream. Currently, the code uses a simple clamp on the innermost loops for checking and performs less frequent copies into a circular buffer. Terriberry's patch uses a more complex clamp and removes the circular buffer.

"Meanwhile Muizelaar's work has combined IDCT and summation with the predicted block into a single function. Doing this reduces memory transfers and therefore reduces cache pollution. Koenig is implementing Muizellaar's work into ARM processors."
