Posted: August 28th, 2013 | Author: | Filed under: Entangle, Fedora, Photography | Tags: , , | No Comments »

I am pleased to announce a new release 0.5.3 of Entangle is available for download from the usual location:

http://entangle-photo.org/download/

This release is primarily focused on bug fixes. The previous 0.5.2 release had a massive memory leak and a thread safety problem causing frequent hangs, so all users are strongly recommended to upgrade

  • Move file name of image thumbnails to tooltip popup
  • Add –disable-schemas-compile configure arg to disable schema compilation
  • Remove “Encoding” key from desktop file
  • Fix massive memory leak in pixbuf loading
  • Fix thread safety in camera control updates which caused hangs in GTK
  • Fix updating of control readonly state when camera modes change

As before we still need help getting the UI translated into as many languages as possible, so if you are able to help out, please join the Fedora translation team:

Thanks to everyone who helped contribute to this release & troubleshooting of the previous releases.
