New Snapshot available24 Sep 2006
As you might have been able to tell, I've returned back home from my one year hotel stay, and besides spending more time with my girlfriend, I've started studying in the evening two nights a week. This has taking time away from KPA work, but I'm still slowly advancing towards the next release.
Today I got a few hours of work done on KPA in the morning before my girlfriend got out of bed, so I guess it is time for a new snapshot.
Contest Over - Time to Vote16 Sep 2006
The Splash screen contest is over, now it is time to vote. See
http://www.kphotoalbum.org/index.php?page=splashscreen for details on the voting. Your
first round vote needs to be in by Wednesday Sep. 20th 18.00 CET.
A new snapshot has just been released, which has one major improvement, namely that the annotation dialog now uses list boxes with check boxes for each item. This has two advantages (1) the intention is clearer to new comers (2) We don't need explicit "Merge" and "Remove" actions from multi image annotations.
I hate people questioning the usability of KPhotoAlbum. But that is nothing compared to how much I hate when they are right :-)
This weekend I've been working on implementing sub category reordering using drag and drop in the annotation dialog. So if you want to tell KPhotoAlbum that Las Vegas is in USA, just grab it with your mouse, and drop it on USA.
As a side effect of this, the items in the list boxes have now changed to check boxes, and an item is marked as on an image when checked (in contrast to, when selected), I hope this will make KPhotoAlbum just a little bit more accessible for newcomers.
The splash screen contest started yesterday just got more exciting. You
now have the chance of winning $100. see
