KPhotoAlbum Development Progress

In my cubicle at work, there is this dude (Hi Steve) who almost everyday
complains that I never blog anything, so let me start doing that
occationally from now on - I'm sure Steve will remind me :-)

KPhotoAlbum development for the next release is really comming along real
nice now, there seem to be three major topics covered in the next release:

  • SQL backend. Tuomos is making good progress on his Google Summer of Code
    project on adding an SQL backend to KPhotoAlbum
    .
  • Video support. Darn have I been asked for this like a million times, so
    now it finally seem to be in KPA. So KPA will be able to categories videos
    like images, and it is capable of playing them back.
  • Improved support for annotating images. One of the cool thing about KPA
    is its capabilities to annotate lots of images fast. The annotation dialog
    is getting lots of minor but important improvements. Stuff like sub
    categories now being shown in list boxes, items not
    matching the typed text disapears etc.

    So everyone, please keep me on my toes of reporting progress here.

    Cheers
    Jesper.
