Flickr Remote Organizer for GNOME (frogr) 0.5


Frogr 0.5 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 0.5 release introduces some small (yet handy) new features,
fixes a bunch of bugs in the GNOME bugzilla and bundles some new
translations thanks to the always awesome people from the translation
teams. It is also the first version shipping experimental support for
MacOSX through the gtk-osx project [1], so users of that platform can
also enjoy this Free Software application.

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

* What's new in 0.5 ?

  * Allow loading files from remote servers (use URIs instead of paths).
  * Show username instead of full name in the UI, which is more useful.
  * Allow disabling tags autocompletion through preferences dialog.
  * Show tooltips in the icon view with basic info (title, size, date).
  * Allow enabling/disabling tooltips in the main window.
  * Use check menu items for the account items.
  * Better handling of files with UTF-8 characters in their names.
  * Show the total amount of data to be uploaded in the status bar.
  * Allow sorting pictures by title and date taken (reversed or not).

  * Correct photo orientation when needed.
  * Added support for generating MacOSX packages.
  * Updated marital status in THANKS file.
  * Fix compilation errors in some architectures (Alberto Garcia).
