Flickr Remote Organizer for GNOME (frogr) 0.6


Frogr 0.6 is now out.

* What is it ?

Flickr Remote Organizer for GNOME (frogr) intends to be a complete
application to remotely manage a flickr account from the GNOME desktop.

At this moment frogr is basically a flickr uploader for GNOME, but the
plan is to iteratively evolve it towards a complete flickr manager which
should allow things such as modifying properties for already uploaded
pictures, managing flickr albums an so forth.

This new 0.6 release introduces some small additional new features, plus
the usual bugfixing work. Most remarkable new features are:

  * Integration with GNOME proxy settings (optional).
  * Open pictures in the default image viewer.
  * Allow users to specify a license to be set for each picture.
  * Better thumbnails (bigger and better quality).
  * A new User Manual (Help > Contents).

This project is Free Software and published under the terms of the GNU
Public License v3.
