WHAT’S NEW Version 15.0: New and Updated:
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
Allows adding web locations requiring basic http authentication too
Windows and Linux versions bundled with latest Java 9.0.1
Mac version bundled with updated Java 8u152
Updated languages. Thank you dear translators. Missing your language? Contact us!
