Besides the usual bugfixing work, the main new features on this release are:
- Integration with the GNOME general proxy settings (optional).
- Open pictures in the default image viewer from the details dialog and the main view.
- Allow users to specify the license to be set for the pictures.
- A new User Manual, under “Help > Contents”.
- Some UI improvements.
As usual, you can get frogr through different ways: you can grab the source code from its git repository or via the xz and bzip2 tarballs, specific packages for Fedora or for Ubuntu (ranging from Karmic to Oneiric) and even a version for MacOSX, if you dare to use it.
By the way, at the moment frogr is already being packaged in some distros (see this) and others might follow, so perhaps it could be that you already were able to install it by just using your favorite package manager with the standard repos. Otherwise, it might be just a matter of time, I guess…
Last, but not least, I’d like to make an special mention here to the awesome Quinn Dombrowski, who very well could be the “most passionate frogr user I’ve ever known” and who was kind enough to design, handcraft and send -from Chicago to Spain- a stuffed frogr mascot plus a beautiful vest for my son (which design comes also with its own incredible story), as a sign of gratitude for writing this tiny app. I’m still shocked about it, see what I’m talking about:
If you want to see more pictures you can check my set in flickr, although I warn you these two ones taken by the artist are way better than mine 🙂
Seriously Quinn… and yet once again: Thank you!
