First Snapshot of Next KPhotoAlbum version available
August 22, 2006
OK, we are slowly approaching the next release (well I expect 2-3 month till the actually release, but this also includes all sort of freezes). So it is time to get started creating snapshots for you all to try.
And there are many good reasons to try out this snapshot, but most important is of course to get rid of bugs, so you don't have to be bothered the next year with an annoying bug similar to the selection bugs in the thumbnail view that must have annoyed you like hell.
In this snapshot you will find these new features and bug fixes compared to the 2.2 release:
- Support for video files. KPhotoAlbum will now find all your videos, and create thumbnails for them (if you have the right software installed. If it doesn't have a look at MPlayerThumbs). With the video support you will of course be able to annotate your videos like you may annotate your images. And of course you may also show your videos, either in the viewer, or if that does not work (good enought) by invoking an external viewer from the context menu.
- Hierarchies in the browser The browser now shows the hierarchies among your categories (Las Vegas is in USA kind of stuff). These hierarchies are also shown in the annotation dialog.
- Improved Annotation dialog The annotation dialog now hides items as you type in the line edit, and that way makes it so much easier to find the name of a person whom you only remember the first part of.
- Selection problems solved. And to the relief of so many of you, the selection problem from the previous release have now been fixed.
