Changes in this snapshot since last snapshot

  • Add a keybinding for delete in the viewer that will take the image of the display list. This is useful when comparing a number of images and want to take the worst one away every time to find the best one. Thanks to Wes Hardaker for a patch implementing this.
  • Now it is possible to chose the thumbnail storage format from the settings dialog (ppm files which we used by default are pretty large, so on limited disk space you may wish to choose jpg instead to trade some speed for disk space. (thanks to Franck Sicard for a patch for this)
  • To move items around in the thumbnail viewer, you now first have to select them, then move them. This makes it so much easier to select items, as you do not have to find an empty space to start.
  • new (non round) look of the thumbnail viweer
  • Refactored the code of the thumbnail viewer, so it now is much more clean and understandable.
  • Exif database insertion works again. Thanks to Matthias Fussel
  • Fixed bug #199629 - new images don't trigger dirty state, thanks Matthias Fussel
  • Fixed bug #150971 - disable too low zoom levels, thanks to alexjironkin AT


  • kphotoalbum-20090711.tar.bz2

Changes in this snapshot since last snapshot

  • Now it is possible to add a category image from a context menu, which makes that process much faster (this fixes bug #195023). Thanks to Thomas Pircher for the work on that.
  • Resizing the category overview page now is done without the actual thumbnails, that makes it much faster and much more smooth
  • Improved focus handling in the annotation dialog
  • Made the icons in the thumbnail viewer nicer (round and with a 3D effect)
  • Added support for searching by rating.
  • Much improved HTML export by Miika Turkia
  • Added support for rating multiple images at once in the annotation dialog.

Snapshot 2009-06-29

  • kphotoalbum-20090629.tar.bz2

Changes in this snapshot since last snapshot

  • Made it much more explicit when done tagging images:
    • An item for showing images not yet tagged are available in the browser
    • A configuration option is available for specifying which category and tag should be used to specify untagged images.
    • This tag is set on images when loaded in
    • This tag is removed when selecting "done tagging" in the annotation dialog. It is also possible to select "continue later" in that dialog
  • Speed up browsing of categories with many sub categories. This took browsing from the order of magnitude of half minutes to a second.
  • Added new theme for HTML pages which includes improved support using java script. (Thanks to Miika Turkia for a patch for this)
  • Added support for a copyright tag on the HTML generated pages (Thanks to Miika Turkia for a patch for this)
  • A number of bugfixes.

Snapshot 2009-06-13

  • kphotoalbum-20090613.tar.bz2

Changes in this snapshot since last snapshot

  • The Browser has been completely rewritten, which among a lot of other improvements means:
    • Many of the changes are internal restructuring of the code to use Model/View
    • The GUI is now using Qt4 classes, which looks much more sexy
    • When limiting the content using the line edit, it will try and be clever about which branches are open
    • When limiting, all items of a sub category are shown if its parent matches. As an example of this, imagine a super category California, with sub categories Las Vegas and Los Angeless. If you type California in the search line edit, then both children will still be shown
    • The search bar will now keep focus all the time and send movement keys to the browser. This makes it easier to narrow in the browser using the searchbar.
    • The overview page is now shown in icon mode with icons centered
    • It is possible to resize the pages in the browser using the middle mouse button, just as it is in the thumbnail pages
  • New images was not correctly inserted into the exif database (thanks to Bart Visscher for a patch that fixes this.) Please rerun "Maintainance->Recreate Exif Search Database" to ensure your database it working again.
  • Somehow the XML database can get a file loaded twice. As a remedy until we find the real bug, we will ignore the new files when they are loaded from the database. Thanks to Franck Sicard for a patch for this
