jAlbum 28.0.4 service release

I plan to push out v28.0.4 as a service release to those that runs jAlbum 28, alternatively to call this one 28.1. I've made tests and it behaves here, but would appreciate your confirmation too, before I push it out. You can currently get v28.0.4 as a core update.

Changes:
  • Fix to accidental deletion of audio clips if an image is renamed when only the case differs
  • jAlbum was reprocessing excluded images that were used to represent folders every time, therefore slowing down repetitive album builds
  • The progress bar wasn't updated while processing excluded images that are also used to represent folders
  • The progress bar could sometimes display more progressed than total images
  • jAlbum no longer does regular network calls to check for new "collaborative images" if no such projects are active
  • jAlbum would buffer up and flood our servers with checks for "collaborative images" if the computer was woken up from sleep
  • When uploading projects in the background, jAlbum no longer pops up the resulting gallery in the browser. A notification is shown, and that's enough for background tasks.
  • Fix: "Import settings from published album" would fail if album is hosted at jalbum.net and URL ends with a slash

Tested OK.

Tested OK.

This still appears to fail. Try importing from https://jefftucker.jalbum.net/pdfAR/. The lifeboat file is present.

ETA: And the import works if there's no trailing slash.

Thanks Jeff. I missed one "final" upload. Try downloading the core file again.

That's better. :)

You need to take an elevator down from the jAlbum World Headquarters penthouse suite to the Q.C. Department - I believe they're on the 37th floor now - and put some stick about!

When uploading projects in the background, jAlbum no longer pops up the resulting gallery in the browser. A notification is shown, and that's enough for background tasks.

Also tested OK.

The other bits and pieces are difficult to test, of course.

Yes, that's understandable. Anyway, less network IO is good for everybody :-)
Thanks for testing Jeff!

By active do you mean in the recent projects list?
Are checks automatically resumed when a project is ‘reactivated’?

Yes, the behavior, as perceived by the user, hasn't changed. It was just unclever to request a list of new incoming files if there are no target projects for those files. We're talking about a short network call once per minute so it's a negligible load on the client side, but can amount to unnecessary traffic on the server side if hundreds of jAlbum clients make the same unnecessary requests.

OK, I was just checking if the wiki needed an update. But since a user will still get notified of an addition, even if the project isn’t listed, there is no need to change anything.

The jAlbum client itself will only make periodic checks for updates if there are any active "collaborative" projects in the recent project list.

The wiki now reads ‘When jAlbum is running and the collaborative project is in the recent projects list mages mailed to such addresses will appear automatically in the respective project. You will then be notified via your ordinary email address that new images have been submitted.’

* jAlbum was reprocessing excluded images that were used to represent folders every time, therefore slowing down repetitive album builds

I can confirm this, in a small project this correction had brought noticeable speed advantages.

* The progress bar could sometimes display more progressed than total images

I saw this happing in the past, will have a look if its gone now for ever. Nevertheless I have seen a similar thing once:
