Snapshot package available - Now with a new thumbnail viewer
January 11, 2006
Over the Christmas holidays I got utterly annoyed by the thumbnail viewer - well it has been a pain in the back for a long time, because it had bugs I was unable to solve despite days of investigation, and because it did not allow me to configure the look and feel very well. Therefore I rewrote it from scratch.
The result is a much better looking thumbnail viewer, and as an added bonus, scrolling is now much faster than with the old one. In addition I stole an idea from Bibble wrt to resizing the thumbnails - now simple press the middle mouse button, and move it to resize the thumbnails.
Initially I planned to throw away support for reordering images, but public demand made me change my mind. However, KPhotoAlbum will now ask for permission before doing the actual reordering, which hopefully will avoid that people get their images reordered by accident.
Finally, as an added bonus, it was now very simple to implement a request I've heard a few times, namely the possibility to specify if thumbnails show be shown with the newest one first or last. So I implemented that request ;-)
I created a new snapshot which you may find from the side bar, choose Download->snapshots.
