Download jAlbum 23.0

  -  138 MB  -  Trial

What's new in this version:

News and Updates:
- 30 new trial days for everyone. Free update to anyone who is on a current support and update plan
- Faster/snappier Explorer view. Feels 30-50% faster on a 4 core CPU
- Faster album remakes (around 20% on a 4 core CPU), due to better use of multiple threads
- Faster filter processing due to better use of multiple threads. Image filters are now required to be thread safe (i.e. not contain state that changes during execution of the filter() method). (Filters that aren't thread safe should have their filter() method marked with the java "synchronized" keyword.)
- Faster initialization of consecutive album builds. Cuts about one second from album builds.
- Now allows hiding of web pages. (For supporting skins only. See Story skin)
- New "Last tool" menu item that executes the last used tool, including external tools and plugins. It's bound to the CTRL/CMD+L shortcut and can be accessed from both the Explore view and Edit view. This feature considerably speeds up accessing a commonly used tool while moving through album objects.
- Improved drag and drop behavior: You can now decide to either position dropped files on the caret location (jAlbum switches to Custom ordering) or to let the default folder ordering decide the position. The behavior depends on where you drop (drop in the margin area to let the folder decide)
- When jAlbum switches sort ordering for a folder, this is now indicated clearly with an animated text
- Updated metadata-extractor library to v2.15. Now reads Exif from PNG and HEIC/HEIF images and supports MP4 GPS coordinates among other fixes and improvements.
- Now allows ordinary web pages to be put inside the "res" folder (included in "res" folder of output)
- New "Import comments from rss file" external tool to import comments from really old albums (prior to jAlbum 8.14).
- Paints user installed external tools in bold (Windows + Linux)
- jAlbum's text editor and system console now understands Lua language syntax too
- jAlbum's text editor now adjusts the line number font size in accordance to the text font size
- Updated JNA library from v4.5 to v5.6 thereby improving compatibility and performance when interacting with native OS calls.
- Paints hidden items somewhat darker now for better visibility on bright look and feels
- Updated non-thread safe filters XBorderFilter, AutoFilter and PropertyChangingFilterWrapper to be synchronized
- Updated bundled skins
- Updated translations. Thank you dear translators!

Bug-fixes:
- Mac version wouldn't work properly on Mac "Big Sur" OS (object deletes, skin updates for instance)
- Fix to occasional make album crash when switching skins directly followed by making albums
- jAlbum should now never accidentally suggest to upload a gallery to a folder called "album"
- jAlbum now remembers even if you upload to the root of your ftp directory (valid for non jalbum.net accounts). It would previously always suggest the project name unless a target folder was set.
- Color selector wouldn't work under Java 8
- jAlbum now remembers the sort order and adds newly added files to the right ordered location if you add files using the "Add" button. So if you have "Order by camera date" set for instance, then adding files using the "Add" button will put them in the right order directly (required a screen refresh before)
- Dropped items were not always positioned correctly
- Fixed bug where nothing was printed to the system console if one executed "print" in JavaScript from within the console (swapping back and forth between languages resolved it though)
- Dropped items would be re-arranged surprisingly on next screen refresh
- Fix to incorrect references to global context (wrong engine could sometimes be referred to)
- Woudln't print camera dates older than Jan 1 1970 in the tool-tips of objects of the Explore view
- Fixed repainting of thumbnails when "Hide" is toggled
- Revisiting the Arty image tool in edit mode several times for the same image would result in multiple versions of the Arty UI
- jAlbum's text editor didn't remember the last selected font size
- Division by zero error when processing empty albums
