Flickr Remote Organizer for GNOME (frogr) 0.8

Recommended Posts



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.
