F-Spot 0.7.2 was released! It includes a monodevelop solution!

The version of F-Spot Core was elevated to 0.8, so I updated my addins, created a 0.7 branch and made the master branch depending on F-Spot Core 0.8. So there is a new repository:

http://purecodes.org/f-spot/0.8

In addition to that, you can just use following symlink to the most recent repository if you always use the latest f-spot version:

http://purecodes.org/f-spot/latest

You can find more information and where and how to get them on my F-Spot addin site. If you want to participate or have a look at the source code you can do so on Gitorious.

News from my F-Spot addins, especially the workflow addins used to work with Bibble 4, Bibble 5 or other external RAW processor applications.

  • New Addin: Develop in Bibble5 in your context menu
  • Import Processed will import now your processed photos as new versions

Follow-Ups:

f-spot-version-sidebar-0.6.4.jpg

I committed and uploaded a bugfix for the Version Sidebar F-Spot Plugin. Version 0.6.4 fixes a bug affecting some other parts of F-Spot, too. The version sidebar is now clickable again.

By the way I branched the Addins and the master branch now depends on F-Spot’s core 0.7, which replaces Core with App.Instance.

Update: The tabbed sidebar is not working at the moment with 0.7 (git), due to a redesign in the f-spot source. I am still not sure how I redesign the tabbed sidebar code to get it work with the actual design or if the f-spot code will be changed again. 0.6 works fine.

See my F-Spot Addin page for more information.

Some more updates on the addins for F-Spot I wrote about lately.

Tabbed Sidebar

  • Saves open sidebar page on changing between view mode and browser mode

Version Sidebar

  • Fixed bug and crasher because of not using the correct id ranges in photo versions collection

You can find the source code as always on Gitorious, the extension url here:

http://purecodes.org/f-spot/0.6

Updates only available for 0.6.

Some updates on the addins for F-Spot I wrote about lately.

New Addin: Tabbed Sidebar

I announced that this wasn’t possible. Well, Ruben Vermeersch made the F-Spot Sidebar public, so that I can access it with a Service Addin. See my last post for a screenshot. This saves at least a click on each sidebar page change.

This is done using a service addin which accesses the F-Spot UI elements on startup. Restart F-Spot after installing this addin to to work.

Import Processed Files

  • Fixed crash: API change in latest git 0.6

DateTime Format

  • Added new config variable for long date display. F-Spot displays the date and the time, too, if the width of the thumbnails is wide enough. You can use this variables now:
    gconftool-2 --type string \
    --set "/apps/f-spot/ext/datetimeformat/shortdate" "yyyy-MM-dd"
    gconftool-2 --type string \
    --set "/apps/f-spot/ext/datetimeformat/longtime" "HH:mm"

    You have to restart F-Spot after installing this addin or changing the date patterns.

You can find the source code as always on Gitorious, the extension url here:

http://purecodes.org/f-spot/0.6

The addins for 0.5 did not change. The tabbed sidebar is not available for 0.5.

I updated the two F-Spot addins for Bibble 4 and I published two new ones. Furthermore, the URL of the repository has changed and I published the source on gitorious.
