Mercury version 9 is available here:

  • Option, when not using fixed-shape thumbnails, to constrain the aspect ratio (width divided by height) of the thumbnails, with a minimum of 0.5 and a maximum of 2.5. This prevents panoramic images and exceptionally tall, skinny images from producing thumbnails with extreme aspect ratios, which tend to distort the thumbnail table layout.
  • Completely revised method for handling folders that don't have a representing thumbnail image. This includes the ability, when using the Custom style, to specify the background color behind the generic folder icon; preset styles use a color-matched background.
  • Improved handling of thumbnail images that are smaller than the user settings require.
  • More selective copying and loading of resource files.
  • More selective CSS inclusion.
  • More efficient folder thumbnail sizing.
  • Method for excluding unsupported objects altered to accommodate processing sequence in latest release of jAlbum.
  • Album generation is aborted if you choose non-fixed-shape thumbnails, but also choose thumbnail image bounds that have an aspect ratio (width/height) that is less than 1.0. The justified gallery of thumbnails is fundamentally incompatible with portrait mode image bounds.
  • Default for video autoplay set to false.
