2.34-rc1 (August 2, 2007)
*** License changed to GPLv3
*** Requires PHP >= 5.0 and PostgreSQL >= 8.0
- Vastly improved the themability of the UI. Converted the site
layout to use pure CSS, greatly simplifying the generated HTML.
- Support multiple languages. German, French, and Dutch translations
are available.
- All internal data is now UTF-8 and is served to the user as such.
- Switch to PHP's built-in session management, and take advantage of
per-session storage. This opens up many, many possibilities.
- Rewrote new user preference backend based around a simple
key=value paradigm. In the process, all user preference code was
refactored to eliminate many, many database transactions, resulting
in much simpler code everywhere else.
- The spool has been revamped, making it into a sort of temporary
clipboard. It's much simpler to use and considerably more
useful. Exports, Printing, and bulk updates can work against this
improved spool.
- Error reporting centralized and cleaned up.
- ExifTool is now required, and is used for all image metadata
extraction (XMP/IPTC/EXIF)
- Shopping infrastructure removed, replaced with a simple per-image
URL to an external store
- Sidebar search page removed; it was only semi-working and basically
needs a re-think.
- Individual 'versions' of images can now be added to albums, rated, etc.
- The backend now supports an unlimited number of image sizes, though
the UI does not.

- RDF-XMP metadata import for any image file, making Photo Organizer
fully compatible with the Extensible Metadata Platform of Adobe Photoshop CS.
- Versatile selector that allows the user to specify the order in
which the IPTC, EXIF and XMP metadata is extracted. This is useful
because some fields are shared between the mentionned metadata
formats which are overwritten, and so the user can specify the
priority among metadata formats.
- MS IE rendering problems fixed in the My Settings tab, in the Folder
View and some other pages. You should be using Mozilla. :)
- Advanced Search Engine - that allows field specific queries, while
providing the usual logic operators.
- The General Search Engine has been fixed - the AND operator was not
working properly when searching on sql fields belonging to different
- The SQL code was optimized for faster display of the folder, album
and search views.
- The Inline Styles were replaced by a global CSS file that should be
specified in each theme. This way the PHP code got simpler,
furthermore theme developers have better control over the styles
used by the interface.
- EXIF Timestamp validator was dropping dates where no time was supplied.
- When displaying photos from an album view, the parent folder is
displayed only if the viewer has the rights to visit that folder.
This was a security discrepancy, as it disclosed the names of a
hidden folder.
- Calendar paging problem for December fixed.
- Original file names are now poperly imported - in the 2.15 version
when performing single photo uploads, the first character of the
original file name was truncated.
- The controls at the bottom of the folder and album view were misaligned.
- New photo related data fields were added (Author, Title, Keywords)
as a result of the improved IPTC data import. In earlier versions, we
assumed that the Author of the photos is the owner of the PO account,
however this is rarely the case. The Title field was added to
complement the existing Caption filed, and the Keyword field will
allow you to create photo categories.
- When uploading photos the software will try to determine the kind of
equipment used from the IPTC and EXIF data and will create undefined
locations all by itself. This means that you don't have to create
your shooting locations, but you still have to define your equipment
prior uploading your photos into the system.
- The big feature in this release is the photo export. You can export
original photos, or the original photos accompanied by their shooting
data, described via an XML photo description file. In this release
only the master version can be exported. After export, the system
will provide a link to tar ball, containing the photos with their
original file names and the data description file (if this option is
selected). These tarballs are not yet compressed.
- This version features a new Image Repository layout that is needed
by the next release to implement removable media support. The new
Image Repository stores each photo format (original, preview,
thumbnail) in so called sub-volumes, that can be backed-up or moved
to removable medias like DVD.
- The search engine will ignore all single letter and most two letter
keywords. The forbidden keyword set is customizable through a PHP
variable. By using quotation marks the user can force the search
engine to search on a forbidden keyword.
- Registration is completely inhibited if the New User Type is set to
Disabled in the Admin Tab.
- A shop module error is fixed. If the shop module option was disabled
for a user or client, errors appeared at the bottom of the "My Date
Book" page.
- A second shop module bug was fixed. If a photo was available in
multiple formats, one could select the photo from the folder view and
try to put it into the basket, but since no explicit format can be
specified from the folder view, this operation failed. The only way a
customer could purchase a photo was via the photo view, clicking on
the shop tab and selecting the desired format.<br>The current
implementation will allow shopping from the folder view by selecting
automatically an explicit format, while keeping the photo view
shopping features unchanged. The customer can change the format from
through his/her baskset - a feature that was not available earlier.
- Next|Previous browsing error fixed. This bug occured when a client
was browsing with the Next|Previous buttons a folder that contained
private photos. The software tried to load the private photos
therefore the client was redirected to the login.
- Technical Info Tab was unaccessible for administrators. Now the
administrator can see all details of all photos in the system.
- Yet an other installer bug fixed - the image repository path wasn't
set if no password was specified.
- User quotas. The Administrator can impose upper limits for the
number of photos and the storage space assigned to a user. By default
quotas are turned off.
- The system stores the original filenames and supplies them when
retrieving the original photos. For the thumbnail and preview,
automatically generated filenames are returned.
- Imagemagick can be replaced with JpegTRAN when rotating and flipping
images, since JpegTRAN is lossless. This feature is not enabled
because JpegTRAN is making some odd shifts with certain file sizes.
- Photo upload failure fixed when sharpening with factor 0x0.
- Lower photo navigator history fixed in the folder, album views.
- User deletion fixed (dependency on photo ratings failed the removal).

square all the time; thumbnail was misaligned in Konqueror and in

is fixed so that clients can search over protected photos of users
they registerd with.

trace at the bottom of the search page whenever a user, that wasn't
