public bool initialize ()

gexiv2 requires initialization before its methods are used.

In particular, this call must be made in a thread-safe fashion. Best practice is to call from the application's main thread and not to use any Gexiv2 code until it has returned.


true if initialized. If false, GExiv2 should not be used (unable to initialize properly).
