jAlbum 16 (64-bit)

News and Updates:
- New cleaner project file format. jAlbum's project control files are no longer scattered among your images but neatly tucked under hidden ".jalbum" folders. jAlbum will upgrade projects to new format automatically. (Use this conversion tool if you ever need to open projects in older versions of jAlbum)
- Now allows any image file, (not just album objects) to be dropped onto the selectors of the folder property panel.
- More robust image reading. Now handles for instance broken Samsung Galaxy S7 panoramic images too
- More informative error messages if connecting to ftp servers fails
- Displays camera date in info tool-tip when hovering mouse over objects
- jAlbum now provide much faster search in Tiger skin, especially for large albums by using one centralized JSON database instead of one database per folder.
- jAlbum's theme image selector now allows cropping. Currently supported by Zigzag skin
- New tool to zip project files (Tools->External tools->Zip project file)
- Users can now control video quality and scaling while being in advanced mode
- Advanced video settings now allows multiple parameters with same name. This simplifies applying logos on top of videos for instance
- Developers: Now produces pretty printed JSON data files if logging level is set to FINE or higher
- Developers: New IO.zip API
- Developers: New SmartProgressMonitor API
- Developers: Updated JSON library to json-simple3.0.2
- Swedish, English, German, French, Dutch, Korean, Hungarian and Turkish translations updated. Thank you dear translators!

Bug fixes:
- Hitting preview when preview window had been iconified wouldn't de-iconify window
- Fixed occasional hang when failing to connect to servers (Mac)
- Opening embedded editor when no project is loaded would produce an error
- Improved parsing of GPS coordinates to handle oddly formatted coordinates
- Albums made with flatten, alphabetical or date structure (Settings->Structure) would include excluded objects too
- Unselected nodes of folder tree collapsed when moving files between folders
- Broken folder links weren't showing in Explorer view making them hard to detect and repair
- Various bug fixes to internal APIs


jAlbum 15.4 (64-bit)

News and Updates:
- The preview browser now runs in a separate window. (One can optionally switch it back to integrated/embedded mode). The advantages of using a separate window is that you can use a larger window for previews without having to expand the jAlbum window. You can also easily play with various screen sizes to better adapt galleries for various devices (see new "Responsive" button in preview browser's toolbar when running in windowed mode). The "Windowed" preview mode is more like using an external browser for previews, but with the advantages of responding better to skin, style and settings changes within jAlbum.
- Main user interface updated to be more streamlined and intuitive: View mode buttons now left-aligned and community related buttons moved to the top-right corner.
- New project button ("+") added next to project list.
- Made JSON metadata generator more flexible by allowing callback hooks
- Bundled the new Zigzag skin
- Updated bundled Tiger and Turtle skins
- Made browser action buttons translatable

Bug fixes:
- jAlbum sharing wouldn't save share settings (since 14.1)
- Used cached thumbnail within jAlbum even if target image was updated
- Made metadata parsing more robust
- Fixed bug in iterator element causing incorrect object inclusion in certain situations (since 15.3)
- Fixed incorrect thumbWidth and thumbHeight variables for representing folder thumbnails when image has been cropped
- Fixed pricing link not showing when license missing and signed in
- Fix for missing characters in some asian languages


jAlbum 15.3.4 (64-bit)

News and Updates:
- New user interface setting to generate JSON files no matter what skin is used (Settings-Advanced-Metadata). This setting has been added to support a new Wordpress integration we're about to release
- jAlbum now has an improved "expression language" syntax enabling skin developers to use expressions like ${first|second|third} causing the first non-empty variable to be picked. This syntax also accepts default strings: ${aperture:"Missing aperture"}
- Usability improvement: Added the default smart "Make Album" as the 1:st menu item of jAlbum's Make album context menu
- Updated bundled skins Tiger and PhotoBlogger
- Updated Slovenian translation

Bug fixes:
- Fixed an issue with the representing thumbnail for folders having wrong "thumbWith" and "thumbHeight" variables if the target image is cropped in jAlbum, thereby distorting the aspect ratio of such thumbnails


jAlbum 15.3.2 (64-bit)

News and Updates:
- Developers: the ja:if category test tag now accepts a comma separated list of categories, for instance ...
- Updated bundled Tiger skin to v1.8.1

Bug fixes:
- Developers: Fixed incorrect line number references and error messages for many script related errors (BeanShell scripting)
- Some images generated from Nexus tablets caused errors (unable to interpret shutter speed)


jAlbum 15.3.0 (64-bit)

News and Updates:
- jAlbum's Explore view now allows ratings and flags to be set via context menu
- Developers: new ja:iterator element that also iterates over hidden objects and custom pages, otherwise same behavior as ja:fileiterator
- Folders may now have description text (set under folder properties) that differ from the folder comment. Skins can specify separateDescription=true in skin.properties to activate this
- Engine now produces slide images for representing folder images as well and not just thumbnails
- Updated Turkish and Finnish translations. Thank you dear translators.

Bug fixes:
- imagePath on index.htt would point to thumbnails instead of slide images
- Fixed bug in print support (printing.inc)


jAlbum 15.2.0 (64-bit)

News and Updates:
- Introducing a new notion: Web directory. The Web directory is a global preference which can point out the root of a local web structure where to put album folders by default. jAlbum can now be instructed to either put new projects in an "album" sub folder of the project folder (still the default) or in a folder under the new web directory
- jAlbum's recent project list now finally displays the name of the project file instead of the containing folder's name if the project name isn't the default name (jalbum-settings.jap). This allows project files to be located under the same folder without ending up in a long list of the same folder name printed. Renaming an entry under "Recent projects" will rename the project file instead of renaming the project/image folder in case the project name isn't the default (jalbum-settings.jap). Use "File->Save project settings as" or Explorer/Finder to make the initial project name change
- Web locations may now use relative as well as absolute URLs
- Slight performance enhancement to album making
- No longer switches to newly installed skin (may cause unwanted changes to open projects)
- Bundled with updated Java 9.0.4 (Windows + Linux)
- Installed size reduced with 70MB (pruned unneeded code from bundled Java)
- Developers: The StateMonitor can now monitor changes to the music play list component too

Bug fixes:
- Fixed bug causing blank full screen review view mode under OS X High Sierra
- Fix to unwanted regeneration of images
- Wouldn't properly show license expired message
- User variables weren't picked up from folders
- If copying files where source file was missing, would delete destination file instead of signalling an error (since introduction of hard links)
- Fixed rare nullpointer bug during album build


jAlbum 15.1.0 (64-bit)

News and Updates:
- Support for MPEG-4 audio file added (.m4a extension)
- Internal music player updated to play both m4a, wav and mp3 files
- Defaults can now be stored and applied on a per-skin basis. See "File->Save as Skin Default"
- Cut+Paste support added. This mimics the Cut+Paste behavior in Windows Explorer and facilitates moving album objects around. Just select some album objects to move, hit CMD/CTRL+X, go to the destination folder and location and hit CMD/CTRL+V to paste the objects. The objects will be pasted close to the mouse pointer location. This feature will probably be appreciated by those who organize huge albums and feel uneasy with dragging and dropping and the scrolling it usually involves.
- Updated bundled Minimal and Tiger skins

Bug fixes:
- Fix to "directory already exists" error during ftp upload
- IPTC keywords weren't imported properly if they were semicolon separated


jAlbum 15 (64-bit)

News and Updates:
- New 30 trial days for everyone! Free update for anyone having a current support and update plan or active Premium or Power subscription. Discounted updates for users with older licenses. (See status under Help->"About jAlbum" inside software or on your jalbum.net profile page.)
- Supports 360° images (Tiger skin + new property panel under Edit while editing 360° images)
- Supports hard links! Drastically (20 times) reduces size of album folders by using hard links for original images and resource files (Toggle under Preferences->Album)
- New JPEG reading code capable of properly handling several odd JPEG variants and color profiles. (TwelveMonkeys)
- Now offering four new extra high quality image scaling algorithms: "Blackman-Bessel", "Blackman-Sinc", "Lanczos" and "Mitchell". jAlbum's image scaling should now match the best alternatives in the industry. See Settings->Images. Credit to TwelveMonkeys for these.
- New folder property panel allowing quick and intuitive selection of folder specific titles, descriptions thumbnail images and theme images as well as allowing easy selection of theme image crop focus.
- Theme images may now be selected separately from representing folder images. (Updated Tiger skin demonstrates this, and more skins will follow)
- The whole code base, including all extensions, refactored to use Java 8 features and more performant constructs. The result should be slight performance enhancements, including somewhat lower startup time
- Easier to use backups: Now generates "lifeboat" file to album folder during Make album instead of during publishing (toggle under Preferences->Album). This enables users to retrieve backups from published albums even if they were uploaded with 3:rd party ftp tools.
- Removed ability to include hi-res images (doesn't seem to be used)
- Smoother looking splash screen :-)
- Bundled with updated Tiger skin supporting separate theme images, among other improvements

- Fixed broken error window if jAlbum fails to start
- Fix issue preventing jAlbum from starting if clipboard was in an illegal state (caused by some 3:rd party clipboard management software)
- Developers: JComboBoxes having numbers as model wouldn't update correctly when loading projects

jAlbum 14.0 (64-bit)

News and Updates:
- Introducing the new and fully responsive "Tiger" skin that's intended to replace Turtle
- New stylish dark user interface look - Darcula. (If you prefer the old look, change back under Preferences)
- New album object type: "Web locations". Web locations are objects that can refer to any web page, not just local ones. This opens for some really interesting new applications for jAlbum. See for example this album collecting popular TED talks on YouTube. To add a "Web location" to your album, drop the web page onto jAlbum or select New page->Web location. Why not use this feature to make a master album out of existing albums?
- Bundled skins "Minimal", "Base", "PhotoBlogger", "Turtle" and the new "Tiger" skin now supports Web Locations.
- jAlbum now has integrated GoogleMaps location tagging, see Edit->Location
- jAlbum can now automatically embed xmp based copyright notices on all images (Settings->Images)
- Better integration with external editors, for instance PhotoShop (alt-double click to export to choosen editor)
- jAlbum's Text effect (Settings->Effects->Text) now supports background color
- New importer to import metadata from various database backed photo management systems (see Add->From database file)
- Batch rename now supports regular expressions (select several album objects and select rename to launch batch rename tool)
- Adapted for Java 9
- "Skin family" mechanism allowing skins belonging to the same family to share the same project settings. This simplifies moving from one skin to another without having to re-enter the same settings. This applies when moving from Turtle to the new Tiger skin for instance. Just open an existing Turtle project and switch to Tiger, then make the album again. ("Skin family" is a skin property)
- Developers: New "include" and "exclude" attribute to ja:fileiterator element allowing a comma separated list of categories to be included or excluded, for instance
- Developers: New "category" attribute for ja:if element, simplifying testing on categories, for instance: . Please replace with for better future compatibility.
- Bundled with updated Java 8u131
