there's only partial support for animated gifs by the image libraries coppermine uses. Not directly related to coppermine, but the image libraries used (GD and ImageMagick).

Until PHP releases a version that has support for animated gifs (new functions for animated gifs), there really isn't much we can do about this issue.

Actually, GD comes as a third-party app from Boutell, the PHP devs "only" coded in some functions to use the library. Considering the fact that GIFs are obsolete (mainly because of the 256-colors limitation) and that they have gone through painful experiences with the Unisys patents issues in the past, I strongly doubt that they will develop GIF support much further, but who knows...
