Oiled-up and shiny!
“Don’t keep adding features I don’t need. Fix the annoying issues instead!”
Luckily such user comments are rare, perhaps because we put as much energy into fixing things as to developing new stuff. The new v16 is no exception. It actually focuses on fixes. Just like your car needs service every now and then, so does software. It’s not just our bugs we’re fixing, we’re adapting to changes in the software environment and bugs created by others. jAlbum 16 is designed to work faster, be more reliable, easier to use and annoy you less than ever! Here are just a few examples from the release notes:
- Even more robust image reading. Handles more broken and oddly formatted images than ever
- Faster search in huge albums: Minimizes network IO during search in albums due to new album-wide JSON database format.
- More informative error messages if connecting to ftp servers fails to better assist you uploading albums.
- New cleaner project format. Instead of scattering jAlbum's project control files among images, they are now tucked away under hidden ".jalbum" folders.
All in all, jAlbum 16 comes with over 25 fixes and improvements, not to mention the many fixes and improvements that goes into the updated skins Zigzag, Tiger and Photoblogger.Get jAlbum 16 now! »
