We would also need GD 2.2.5 as soon as possible, because GD version 2.1 cannot properly handle transparent webp images, transparent areas are always black.

This is becoming a must have. Bigger sites are demanding more efficient image formats. WebP has become very popular to fit that requirement.

This now seems to no longer be an issue as of RHEL/CentOS 7.
