We’ve released Shotwell 0.4.0, Yorba’s photo organizer for the GNOME desktop. We’ve been cranking along the past two months (has it only been two months?) to get this version out before the end of December, and the hard work paid off.
Probably our most-requested feature to date has been publishing photos to Facebook and Flickr. Shotwell 0.4.0 now offers both. I’m pleased with the result, especially being able to log in to these services in Shotwell itself rather than through an external browser. We have big plans on making Shotwell play well on the Web and with other Web services, so stay tuned.
Other big additions include more language packs, thanks to the work of translators from around the globe. Shotwell 0.4.0 features complete or all-but-complete translations for Italian, German, Polish, Estonian, and Swedish.
Finally, Shotwell 0.4.0 has been ported to Windows and a binary installer is now available. This is an alpha release with some limits, including a lack of camera support and no Facebook/Flickr publishing. However, we were surprised with the (relative) ease of porting Shotwell to Windows. GTK and Vala’s portability were a huge boon in this process.
We’re always looking for feedback, so let us know what you think. Hope you enjoy!
