New team member!

Response to Zenphoto Team Change

It is with many thanks and much respect that we part ways with our former contributor, Stephen Billard, who has surprisingly left the main Zenphoto project to take his efforts in another direction.

As an open source project, we embrace the idea of forking and making use of the code for any purpose, and we welcome Stephen's continued work on his branch. We will surely continue to collaborate and share resources for the near future, and we wish him the best of luck with his work. This type of thing happens from time to time, and we recognize Stephen for his contribution of more than 6 years. For more personal goodbyes, please visit this forum post from our core members.

That said, Stephen was certainly not the only contributor to Zenphoto, with 8 core team members and over 100 other contributors over the last 6 years. His departure marks a new direction for (...)

Zenphoto development team change

Some of you may remember several months ago that I had a disagreement with the management of and said I would no longer be a part of the organization.

Unsupported themes updated for Zenphoto 1.4.6

We have updated the hosted and unsupported themes except zpGalleriffic which is partly broken because of dependencies on outdated JavaScript tools. 

The major work was done by fretzl with some additional work by acrylian and sbillard. Special thanks to arnaud for his help with the zpSkeleton theme.

As always you can get them on our unsupported repository. You have to download everything and only use what you like. Please note that there still might be issues. If you use these themes and notice issues feel free to report them on the issue tracker of the repository. Even more welcome would be contribution via pull requests.
