Frogr 0.8 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 0.8 release introduces some new features (with a special focus
on integrating it better with GNOME 3), plus the usual bugfixing work.
Most remarkable new features:

* Ported to GtkApplication and GMenu.
* Added support for uploading videos.
* Support for loading and saving 'projects'.
* Handle and report errors in a better way.
* Perform after-upload operations in parallel.

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

* What has changed in 0.8?

* Added support for uploading videos
* Added new 'All' and 'Video' filters to the file
chooser dialog.
* Added support for saving and loading 'projects'.
* Added new items to the toolbar ('Open' and 'Save'
for projects).
* Ported to GtkApplication and GMenu (both the app menu
and menu bar).
* Allow sorting elements in the icon view by size.
* Don't give up on upload too early and retry some times
when possible.
* Report errors better, and more often (no more
mysterious failures).
* Make after-upload operations cancellable, repeatable
and parallelizable.
* Properly check and report whether an user is actually
connected to flickr.
* Avoid fetching sets/groups/tags when not connected yet
to Flickr.
* Renamed the 'Actions' menu to 'Edit' and brought the
'File' menu back.
* Renamed the 'Load Pictures' item to 'Add Pictures'
* Updated menu item accelerators and shortcuts.
* Hide title bar when main window is maximized.
* Migrated from GtkTable to GtkGrid.
* Raised glib minimum version up to 2.32.
* Raised gtk+ minimum version up to 3.4.
* New build dependency: gstreamer 0.10
* New build dependency: json-glib (> 0.12)
* Ported the Mac OS X version from GTK+ 2.24 to to GTK+ 3.6.
* Created a JHBuild's moduleset to easily build frogr
for Mac OS X.
* Stop using gtk-mac-integration, now we have migrated
to GMenu.
* As usual, other minor improvements, bug fixes and cleanups.
