Why?

So that this doesn't happen.

If that is a problem for a user, he can select 'Use theme image as background'.

David, the Mac package does not include ClassicFileFilters.jar

It should actually be dumped from all distros now. That jar file relies on code that has been removed from Java now.

One more tiny piece of the puzzle - the skin.properties editor needs to include the entry for supporting separate theme images.

BTW, where is the code for that? The new skin I'm working on requires a license key, and it would be nice for a user to be able to store that in the skin properties, rather than being forced to save this skin as the default, with an entry for the license key in the GUI. I could just hijack the company field, which is otherwise unused.

I suspected that might be the case, I have removed it from my skin, as it turns out I wasn't using it.

In fact, as I think about it, it might be helpful to include a few standard fields in skin.properties for stuff like this - a skin license key, and a Google maps API key. A skin could then pre-fill those fields in its own GUI, which would allow the user to override them for a specific album.

But then it wouldn't survive skin updates. There is a persistence API in Java called Preferences API which I recommend using. It's cross platform and persists any data to disk. Exactly how it's done is platform specific but nothing one needs to worry about.

I'll include those in the sharp release.

In a way, this comes back to an old feature request. Right now, a user can Save as default, and preserve all of his settings, even through skin updates (assuming variables don't change, or if they do, that the skin developer hasn't coded to update them upon loading). But you can do that for only one skin.

Not sure how it would look, but it would be nice to be able to save your defaults for Tiger, save your defaults for Gromit, and so on. Whichever skin you choose, it would remember all of your preferred settings for that skin.

Windows 10 shows the well known startup error which I and terokinnunen (see here) did report earlier, after an update from version 14.

To solve it, the same recipe as reported above: after uninstalling and reinstalling the problem was gone.

Interesting. I've never seen that issue reported by anyone else (but I trust you naturally). I've updated the Windows installer to the latest version now, see if it helps.


I have never seen this issue before even though having updated jAlbum over previous install many times. Now it is consistently reproducible in my two Windows 10 computers when installing http://jalbum.net/download/jAlbum-install.exe (SHA256: A4971A6E3F3F70FCBA12A724A7FF286D1631C5710E48C455B5522E38B81D2F7A) over 14.1.10.

The problem is still the same, jre64\bin\server\jvm.dll missing. Steps to reproduce here: https://jalbum.net/forum/message.jspa?messageID=321884#321884

Just discovered alternative workaround. Run the installer again and choose "Repair". That fixes the problem.
