About us

Here you find some info about the project and the people that run it.

Development history

Zenphoto was started in May of 2005 with a published specification on a weblog (trisweb.com), and each version saw dozens of comments leading to revision of the specs and more ideas for subsequent versions. It was a fruitful and enjoyable development process that is not even close to being finished.

In September 2007, members of the Zenphoto community began improving Zenphoto and making a 'community build' that included many new features and fixes, since the development had stalled for over six months. The community build was then merged into the Zenphoto codebase and development continued with a core team of developers and contributors. Finally, on November 2nd 2007 Zenphoto 1.1 was released, including many new features and improvements.

We now have an excellent team of developers working on the project and development is much more active than in the past. Zenphoto has lots of users all over the world and there exist approximatly ten thousends of installations on the net Google finds over 300.000 results for "Powered by Zenphoto"! and had around 15.000 downloads of the 1.3 release alone.

Thank you to all who contributed to the releases since 1.1 and the continued development of Zenphoto.
