Rapid Photo Downloader 0.9.6b1 is released


(Damon Lynch) #1

This release will be of particular interest to Fedora users and other bleeding edge distros, as it works around a bug in a very recent version of libmediainfo.

A new feature makes the Timeline more friendly — by default the scrolling of displayed thumbnails and the Timeline is now synchronized. You can turn it off if you prefer the old behavior, using a little button at the bottom right of the Timeline. Please let me know what you think of this change. Hopefully it’s for the best.

As always, download it at http://damonlynch.net/rapid/download.html

Full list of changes:

  • Timeline is now shown by default when the program is first run, or settings
    are reset.

  • Added option to synchronize Timeline with thumbnails. Scroll one, and the
    other automatically scrolls too. Use the button at the bottom-right of the
    Timeline to toggle this feature.

  • After clearing a Timeline selection, the display of thumbnails will be
    positioned such that the the photos in the previous selection are
    visible. Previously, the thumbnails display would be scrolled all the way
    to the top after the Timeline selection had been cleared.

  • Added Hasselblad 3FR files to list of supported file formats. If you detect
    any problems with the accuracy of the metadata from this format, please let
    me know.

  • Work around MediaInfoLib bug #695 that caused the libmediainfo shared
    object file to be named incorrectly, making it appear to be missing.

  • Correctly parse Distribution version in installer when running on Fedora,
    Debian and Peppermint.

  • Install PyQt 5.9.2 or greater. Upgrade pymediainfo to version 2.2.0 or
    newer.

  • Updated Catalan, Chinese, Czech, Danish, Dutch, French, German, Norwegian
    Nyorsk, Russian, and Spanish translations.
