Zenphoto 1.4.4 Beta

We are pleased to announce the availability of the Beta version of Zenphoto 1.4.4.

Updates to the Beta are contained in the "Master" branch of Zenphoto on GitHub.


Removes the specific image and album HTML from the DOM if the user does not have ADMIN_RIGHTS

This instance of the plugin will disable the image/album "publish" action. But it is intended mostly as an example.
To disable other actions you will need to examine the page HTML and change/insert code as needed.


Zenphoto is a bugfix and mainly a security release of the recent 1.4.3 branch. Fixes various primarily backend security issues. Thanks to miaouplop, Janek Vind and Scott Herbert for reporting them.

Other fixes include various minor issues regarding user_groups, official themes and search.

As usual we recommend all users upgrade for the latest updates and fixes.For more detailed info about the fixes please review the bugtracker tickets and use an svn client.

Zenphoto development partly moved to GitHub now

We have moved development of the next version 1.4.4 scheduled beginning of 2013 to GitHub as recently announced. You find it now under this address:

This means there will be no dev nightly builds anymore. Instead you get the current development status from GitHub directly. Also please use the GitHub issue tracker for the 1.4.4 dev build and NOT the bugtracker on our site. A GitHub account is required for that. (If you can and are already on our forum, please try to use the same user name so we know what is related.)

However, the trunk build for the 1.4.3.x bugfixes releases is kept on our site as always with nightly builds and the bugtracker until 1.4.4 has been released.

Zenphoto development about to move to GitHub

The Zenphoto development team has decided to migrate our repository to GitHub. We expect to finalize this with the Zenphoto 1.4.4 release. GitHub will provide us with a much better environment for Zenphoto development, including replacement of the Trac ticket system with one integrated with the repository.

Currently only the unsupported third party themes and extensions we host have already been moved to GitHub. You will notice the button below their entries on our site. This is still a work in progress so sometimes things may be changed around and not work at once until all is settled.

We will announce when our migration is finished until then still use our bugtracker and svn as always. And of course our site will not go anywhere.
