This pointfix is for a critical installer bug affecting new installations only; the image repository was being created incorrectly. 106
This pointfix release fixes an error in the installation that affects new installations using PostgreSQL 8.1.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
