The long-awaited version 2.34 of Photo Organizer is finally released. With many new features and tweaks to old ones, nearly every facet of Photo Organizer has been modified in some way. The most visible improvement is the refactored UI that makes extensive use of CSS and supports multiple languages. Working with larger sets of images and especially clients is also considerably simpler, with the ability to tie folders and clients to datebook events. There are also many behind-the-scenes changes to improve reliability, facilitate future scalibility and of course, a massive pile of little features and tweaks.

See the changelog for further details.

Changes from 2.34-rc4 include a pile of bugfixes and a complete Dutch translation.

December 11, 2006 Photo Organizer 2.33 released

Download GPG Signature (SHA1SUM 699020356ec2255d84958eccde085aab1dbc8e03)

A small pile of minor features were added, but most noteworthy is the ability for bulk updates to set/clear keywords independently. Most of the changes were internal but functionally-neutral, paving the way for major changes planned for the next release.

Additionally, this release closes two classes of security errors:

  • We weren't checking user permissions on many, many requests, so specially-crafted URLs could allow information disclosure or at worst, deletion of images.
  • We were vulnerable to SQL injection attacks on numeric data types. The implemented solution is less-than-ideal, but we will be moving to a proper database framework in a future release.

See the Stable Changelog for release notes.

Download GPG Signature (SHA1SUM bf4f8249bf8a07738babd1c1a554810168b55c8d)

The biggest feature is a new, rewritten installer that makes getting PO up and running a lot simpler. Aside from that, PO now supports the use of ExifTool for EXIF parsing, and features a vastly improved bulk update tool. See the Stable Changelog for release notes.

Now that this release is out, it's time to figure out what should go into the next -stable release. Suggestions welcome.

September 6, 2006 Workaround for buggy installer

Due to a terminal set of bugs in the installer, the generated configuration file is missing many necessary configuration keys. The simplest way around this is to copy the original src/include/config.php over the installed one, and manually edit the settings to reflect your site configuration. This problem is completely resolved in the upcoming 2.32 release.

September 4, 2006 Photo Organizer 2.31b Released

PO 2.31b contains a small pile of feature enhancements, including the oft-requested hierarchical bulk import of a folder tree, significant speedups when searching, as well as the usual pile of bugfixes. See the Stable Changelog for release notes.

Note that the 2.31 release had a critical bug in the EXIF code which was fixed in v2.31a

Note that the 2.31a release had bug in the installer, fixed in 2.31b

August 4, 2006 New Installer

One of the biggest problems with PO was that its installer was quite clunky and fairly brittle. The next release of PO will include a new, native-php installer that will greatly simplify installation, as well as upgrading an existing installation.

The new installer is almost complete, and is at a point where more extensive testing is necessary.

June 3, 2006 Photo Organizer 2.30 Released

The first release under new maintainership, v2.30 consists primarily of bugfixes, but with a few enhancements thrown in for good measure. See the Stable Changelog for release notes.

June 1, 2006 New Demo Site

There's finally a new demo site of the -stable code tree. It allows open registration, so feel free to create an account and see what Photo Organizer can do for you. Unfortunately, bandwidth (and disk space) is fairly limited, as it's running out of my living room.

As this site tracks the -stable tree, there will be features and bugfixes not present in the previous snapshot release, so if you think you have come across a bug, recreating it on this site will be a useful debugging aid.

May 11, 2006 Photo Organizer under new maintainership!

Due to time constraints, Balint Kis has passed the reigns of maintainership to Solomon Peachy. With the new maintainership comes a new web site, with an attempt to create a bit more visibility into the goings-on of Photo Organizer. The old site will remain up for the forseeable future, but will not be updated.

A new release (see Stable Changelog) is coming RealSoonNow™, primarily intended to fix known bugs. Once this release goes out the door, we will begin backporting features from the Development Tree.
