Zenphoto 1.0.3 Released! 01 June 2006
Ahh the smell of fresh code in the morning…
The coolest part of this release is a huge rework of i.php, the image processor. While it used to only have some limited resizing options (longest side, width, or cropped thumbnail), now it does anything you darn well want it to. You can specify exact width and height and crop dimensions and position. As of now, it’s kinda hard to formulate the input URLs for everyday use, but plugin authors and theme developers should find the new options pretty much awesome. If you want to know more about how it works, check out this wiki article I wrote.
Now that this release is out, we should be able to ride it for a while and work on more than just fixing bugs; we’ll work on features like subalbums, for example. :-) Another thing to look forward to: some amazing speed improvements. I guess that’s what you get when you’re slightly detail-obsessive and annoyed by something a little lacking… heck, that’s how ZP started in the first place! (And while we’re on the subject, why can’t WordPress get my line breaks right?? Details, people, details…)
Now that I’m graduated I’ll have a little time to spare to keep working on this thing. It’s really pretty rewarding and worthwhile, actually, so thanks to all of you for using it and enjoying it (I hope). Now, since it is zenphoto, I leave you with a couple photos.
