Photologue 3.4.1 released

23 Dec 2015

Today I am very pleased to announce that django-photologue 3.4.1 is released and available for immediate download from the Python Package Index (PyPI).

Upgrade notes:

  • The EXIF property of an Image is now a method instead.

The full list of changes is:

  • Dropped support for Django 1.7.
  • Fixed a few minor issues with the unit tests.
  • Adding a watermark was crashing (fix suggested by hambro).
  • Added/updated translations: Danish, Slovak (contributed by Rasmus Klett, saboter).
  • Fixed Django 1.9 Deprecation warnings (contributed by jlemaes).
  • Processing of EXIF data was broken (and very broken in Python 3) - updated library and bug fixes.

As usual, my thanks go to all the contributors who help fix and improve Photologue.

Photologue 3.3.2 released

20 Jul 2015

Today I am very pleased to announce that django-photologue 3.3.2 is released and available for immediate download from the Python Package Index (PyPI).

There are no major changes in this version - just a number of bugfixes and updated translations. Oh - and Photologue is now available as a Python Wheel :-)

The full changelog follows:

  • In the initial data setup, the 'thumbnail' photosizes should not increment theview count (issue #133).
  • Fix typo in admin text (issue reported by Transifex user ciastko).
  • Updated translations: Hungarian, Czech, Dutch.
  • Zip upload used gallery title instead of "Title" field for photos (#139).
  • Zip upload: an uploaded photo is not a duplicate of an existing photo simply because they share the same slug.
  • Updated django-sortedm2m version - this should help admin performance for galleries with lots of photos.

As usual, my thanks go to all the contributors who help fix and improve Photologue.

Photologue 3.2 released

12 May 2015

Today I am very pleased to announce that django-photologue 3.2 is released and available for immediate download from the Python Package Index (PyPI).

The main change in this release has been to deprecate several features e.g. tagging. This is part of a long-term goal to make Photologue a smaller, leaner project, but one that is very easy to customise.

The full changelog follows:

  • Dropped support for Django 1.6.
  • Rotation of photos based upon EXIF data if available, so they get displayed correctly (#122).
  • Misc doc tweaks.
  • Only clear scale cache if image has changed.
  • Pagination is now hard-coded to 20 items per page - it's a convenience to have it available as soon as the app is run, but having settings to tweak this value is not needed as it's so easy to override in a Django project.
  • PHOTOLOGUE_GALLERY_PAGINATE_BY and PHOTOLOGUE_PHOTO_PAGINATE_BY were previously deprecated and have now been removed.
  • Tagging has been removed from Photologue.
  • All references to 'title_slug' field have been removed.
  • Django can now natively chain custom manager filters - so the dependency on django-model-utils is removed.
  • Updated German translation.
  • Improved setup file.
