Zenphoto 1.4.7

Developers' notes

We are sorry that it took longer for this bugfix release than usual. Those who follow us regulary may know about a certain reconsolidation last year. Also we are preparing the next major release behind the scenes already as we hinted on the forum a while ago. We are all doing this in our spare time so we may release less often than before from now on.

Version numbering change

This is a bugfix and security release. We follow more or less semantic major.minor.bugfix version numbering from now on. This release would have been 1.4.6.1 following the former numbering.

We may also add minor features if they don't break any existing functionality. This can be simple additional plugin options like the Zenpage ones listed below or things that were actually correct but behaved weird. We think it is better to add these small things rather than to "spare" for some time later.

Introducing ZenphotoConnect

This was of course our traditional April Fools Joke.

ZenphotoConnect is turning Zenphoto into its own media social network! We plan to launch it in May. Every new installation of Zenphoto will then automatically connect to our server on zenphoto.org.

zenphoto-connect

ZenphotoConnect will display the latest images from all Zenphoto users all over the world. The best is it will be completely respecting your privacy, even by strict EU laws. There will be no accounts with any submission of private and personal data because it is all based on the open standard that is the RSS feed provided by each Zenphoto install anyway. We will also only display downsized thumbs with title, site origin and description excerpt so users are always taken directly to your site for the real deal and your own site's benefit.

You will be able to subscribe to those sites you like best and create your own personal image stream. There will be a plugin to display your stream on your Zenphoto site and on your Zenphoto backend overview page.

With ZenphotoConnect we will bring the Zenphoto (...)

zpBase theme and Zenphoto 1.4.7

zpBase is generally compatible with 1.4.7 but because it made direct use of an now obsolete internal function of the print_album_menu plugin you need to download the theme's master (not 1.0 from the "releases") from its Github page for Zenphoto 1.4.7: https://github.com/gjr-osweb/zpbase/archive/master.zip
