Eye of GNOME 2.19.1
Posted on: 05/02/2007 08:21 PM

This is a special release: this is the first release with the completely rewriten core of Eye of GNOME. Also, some cool features were added.

As you can see, some of the bugs listed in this announcement were already fixed in previous releases. This is because we were working on a separate branch (eog-ng) for this new code and we kept fixing bugs on both trunk and eog-ng for some time.

There's still a lot of polishing work to do from now on. Testers, go on and use, debug, profile, play with, and crash EOG as much as you can. The plugin system and other new features are scheduled for 2.19.2.

Special thanks goes to Claudio Saavedra and Felix Riemann. Without those guys, this awesome release wouldn't be possible.
