GIFImages.jl: Decodes GIFs x15 faster

Happy to announce release of GIFImages.jl 0.1.0 !!
GIFImages.jl decodes GIFs in Julia x15 times faster than current ImageMagick method.

GIFImages.jl provides support for decoding and encoding GIF images in Julia by wrapping LibGif. GIF(Graphics Interchange Format) supports up to 8 bits per pixel for each image, allowing a single image to reference its own palette of up to 256 different colors chosen from the 24-bit RGB color space.

It’s one of 3 major work products from my GSOC’22 project. ExifViewer.jl already published and JPEG2000.jl on the way to release too!
