Progress, Localization, and AppImage
Published: 18th of July, 2020

The past few months have been rather eventful for me, as I'm sure they have been for many if not most people. Even though my plans for the past few months all of the sudden changed completely, one small positive side effect is that I do have a little more time to work on PhotoQt. There have been a good few changes in the development branch in the git repository recently. The next release, version 2.0, is still a little ways off, but I hope to have everything ready some time this fall.


What's been happening with PhotoQt
Published: 18th of September, 2019

It has been rather quiet around PhotoQt over the past year. Unfortunately life has been a little too busy to also work on PhotoQt. However, this is slowly changing now and the next version of PhotoQt (version 2.0) is back on its way.


PhotoQt v1.7.1 - squashing some bugs
Published: 3rd of June, 2018

There have unfortunately been some bugs that snuck into v1.7 that remained unnoticed before the last release. Thanks to some fantastic users these bugs have been found, reported and now fixed! As some of them have a rather big impact on the usability of PhotoQt, here is a small bug fix release to take care of them.


PhotoQt v1.7 is now available
Published: 15th of May, 2018

PhotoQt v1.7 comes only about three months after v1.6, yet it once again brings a host of changes and improvements. Besides general speed improvements, it brings a wider range of supported image formats, several new and exciting features and fixes many bugs.


PhotoQt v1.6
Published: 20th of February, 2018

More than a year has passed since the last release of PhotoQt. That is quite a lot of time. For a large part of that time I was not able to work much on PhotoQt as life kept me very busy. However, now it is finally here: The all-new release of PhotoQt version 1.6!


Introducing ImgurQt
Published: 3rd of February, 2017

Today I want to quickly introduce a new small application called ImgurQt. ImgurQt is a simple console application (also based on Qt) that implements some of the basic commands of the imgur.com APIv3.


PhotoQt v1.5.1 is available
Published: 18th of January, 2017

Even though PhotoQt v1.5 is only a few days old, I have heard from some users about some difficulties they had in getting the required dependency QtCharts installed. It appears that this QML module is not shipped by all distributions as it's a rather new module (even though it doesn't state this on the respective documentation page). This issue is addressed with this release.


PhotoQt v1.5 released!

It's here: A brand-new release of PhotoQt, version 1.5. This release brings once again many exciting changes!

PhotoQt v1.4.1 - fixing some bugs
Published: 1st of June, 2016

It has been just over two weeks have passed since v1.4 was released. And there have been a few bug reports dripping in since then. I had hoped to catch all of them before releasing v1.4, but unfortunately some slipped through. Hence, PhotoQt v1.4.1 fixes a total of 17 bugs!

Nothing has happened with PhotoQt for quite a while. No new code, and no emails or support requests have been answered for about 3 months already...


More than 10,000 downloads!
Published: 21st of August, 2013

PhotoQt v1.0beta
Published: 31st of July, 2013

It has been already a little over half year since the last release. Quite a long time, mainly caused by me having a lot to do for university. But I think, after that much time the new release will be even more exciting! And it's soon ready...


Name change (and other things)
Published: 23rd of May, 2013

Mainly two things happened recently:
1) 'Photo' will be renamed to 'PhotoQt'.
2) The dependencies (of course besides Qt) can be "switched off"


Some of the recent development
Published: 24th of February, 2013

It's a little over a month since the release of version 0.9.1. And it'll be another little while before the next release, however, there are already some bigger changes (not all complete just yet) in the development version you can find on GitHub. Here is a little preview of the four biggest changes so far...

GitHub and BugTracker
Published: 11th of January, 2013

The latest snapshot of the upcoming beta you can now get at GitHub. It will be updated whenever a bug is fixed and also from time to time with updated translations.
Also, reporting a bug has just become a lot easier. You can report bugs easily through bugzilla at http://photoqt.org/bugs.


Photo 0.9 beta
Published: 6th of January, 2013

Later as originally planned, but finally it is here: The beta for version 0.9 of Photo! A lot of work has gone into it. Pretty much the complete code has been re-written and re-structured. Many bugs have been avoided and features added/fixed. Now, before the final release comes out, I want to add some time of testing, also to give the translators a little time to translate the many new/changed strings.
