Description Jeff Raber 2011-01-04 01:27:45 EST
Below is copied directly from http://www.yorba.org/blog/jim/2010/12/shotwell-080-and-gexiv2-022-released.html

Yorba has released Shotwell 0.8.0, an update to our digital photo organizer.  This release includes some great new features:

   * Video support for most major video formats, including importing them off of camera and adding them to events and tags.

  * Publish videos to major Web services, including YouTube, Flickr, Facebook, and PicasaWeb.

  * Runtime monitoring of library directory and auto-import of newly created files.

  * Background writing of metadata (tags, titles, ratings, orientation, and exposure date) to master files (user-configurable).

  * Flagging photos for batch operations.

  * Set multiple photos to desktop background slideshow.

  * Numerous translation updates.

  * Various bug fixes.

It's highly recommended all users upgrade.

In addition, Yorba has released an update to our Exiv2 GObject wrapper library, gexiv2 0.2.2.  (This library is a requirement for Shotwell.)  This update fixes a bug where a photo file with malformed EXIF could cause a crash.  It's highly recommended that all users upgrade.

Binaries for Ubuntu Lucid (gexiv2) and Maverick (Shotwell, gexiv2) are available at Yorba's Launchpad PPA:

shotwell builds have been failing in rawhide due to the vala upgrade to 0.11.

Adding the vala bug report to dependency. We can't build shotwell 0.8.0 without that bug getting fixed.
Comment 4 Siddhesh Poyarekar 2011-01-05 13:55:29 EST
We also need libgexiv2 0.22 to be able to finish this build.
