Service release 0.3.1 of image management system PHPGallue

(Fri, 20 Oct 2006 23:22:04 -0000)

This release fixes a few bugs and improves the Web interface handling.

PHPGallue is a server based multi-user image management system
which uses PHP 5 and MySQL. It is especially designed to hold
large amounts of images and can serve as image handling backend
for PHP 5 driven applications like web sites.

The final 0.3 release didn't contain some button graphics by accident and the
hovering navigation arrows didn't work in Opera and IE -- that's fixed now,
together with a few minor problems.

Two features from the development branch are added because they help to "save
clicks": With this release vou can add images to groups and categories directly
in the details view without having to switch to the edit view, and you can add
multiple images to a newly created film, series, group or category within a
single step in the multiedit view through the new "Add to new ..." fields.

To update an existing installation is recommended.

The VMware image containing a PHPGallue installation on a Debian GNU/Linux
system is discontinued, but of course you can still update an existing Virtual
Machine to this release.

Final release of the image management system PHPGallue-0.3

(Wed, 16 Aug 2006 19:04:39 -0000)

This release fixes a few bugs and improves the Web interface handling.

PHPGallue is a server based multi-user image management system
which uses PHP 5 and MySQL. It is especially designed to hold
large amounts of images and can serve as image handling backend
for PHP 5 driven applications like web sites.

The improved setup script contains tracing code to debug spurious crashes
and hangs. This code helped to fix a hang that occurred when a fastcgi PHP 5
binary was used instead of the cli binary - now fastcgi, cgi and cli binaries of
PHP 5 work equivalently.

The Web interface tries to display unknown content as multimedia object now and
got some improvements in regard of handling; most striking are hovering navigation
arrows inside the details view of an image.

To update an existing installation is recommended.

(Fri, 11 Aug 2006 17:17:55 -0000)

To make the installation easier, at least for users of Debian, Ubuntu and other Debian-based Linux distributions, we have released a .deb package. It includes a few bugfixes from the current development branch; we are working on the next release of the whole project (including .tar.gz and VMWare image) that includes these bugfixes as well as some new features.

Image management system PHPGallue-0.3-RC3 released

(Sun, 04 Jun 2006 01:43:50 -0000)

This release fixes a security issue and several CSS bugs
in the Web frontend.

PHPGallue is a server based multi-user image management system
which uses PHP 5 and MySQL. It is especially designed to hold
large amounts of images and can serve as image handling backend
for PHP 5 driven applications like web sites.

The previous versions allowed caching of "protected" image data
and private pages, so HTTP proxies could deliver them
to unauthorized persons. This version forbids caching
by setting a "Cache-Control: private" header for these pages.

To update an existing installation is strongly recommended.

Image management system PHPGallue-0.3-RC1 released

(Thu, 18 May 2006 17:17:28 -0000)

PHPGallue is a multi-user, server-oriented, PHP 5 and MySQL 4.1-based image management
system for UNIX-like operating systems.

Backend and user interface are designed to manage large amounts of images - up to 100,000 have been
tested. With it's capability to adjust the visibility of images and other items
PHPGallue is suited for photographers to organize and publish their whole work with one tool.

The strict separation of web frontend and backend libraries together with the
comprehensive API makes it easy to integrate PHPGallue as image management
backend into an existing application, for example a website.

With the brand new setup script installing PHPGallue is done in a few minutes.
PHPGallue only runs on UNIX-like operating systems, but for Windows users
a virtual server appliance for VMWare player (http://www.vmware.com/products/player/) is released.

The release features as separate packages:
- Server code with installer
- The command-line upload client gallupload
- The graphical upload client PyGallue
- A VMWare Player image of a Debian GNU/Linux system with PHPGallue installed and ready to run.
