this is current trunk. normally, this library is available, but some setups need you to manually enable it. since the component is used, it should be added to the checks wether or not the system has all components for wordpress.

compared to other cases ( #6571 ) that time the error message was only suppressed. IMHO it's a pitty if you get no hint that you should enable that library to get more functionally. If the error message is suppressed, you get no such hint.

What is the exact error?

That previous ticket warning was not related to the exif library not being available, rather a different error case (And it was in a conditional to check if it was loaded anyway)

However, Looking at the code, You're right.. Its not checked for in that branch of code.. I'll make a patch up

Tested the patch:

  • Updated to latest trunk & applied the patch.
  • Disabled EXIF in the PHP config.
  • Uploaded an image, no fatal error was thrown.
  • Reverted the patch.
  • Uploaded an image, a fatal error was thrown.

So overall testing was a SUCCESS. Good to go from my side.

This will likely be reworked when image crop and rotate functionality is added to core.
