Zenith Picture Gallery v0.9.4 DEV changelog and download instructions

v0.9.4 DEV is an exciting new release that adds lots of new features and integrates the mods that were written by Hawk for v0.9.2 DEV. It's great to be back on track again as we work towards v1.0. Rest assured that the following release won't take as long to come out.

This is a pre-release version. Please post any problems you come across in the Zenith Picture Gallery support forum for immediate assistance.

Features
- AJAXified the search page so that users can run multiple searches without having to set all the options again every time; the rest will be done in the following release
- The admin can choose whether to use category names (as before) or auto-generated numeric ids for directory names and in paths, settable in the Admin CP (plus the admin has a new option now that goes ahead and rebuilds the directory names)
- Uploaded pictures that are awaiting approval can now be appended with an admin-settable suffix and hidden from directory listings. The feature can be turned on or off from the Admin CP (suggested by malignwarlock)
- The admin can now determine how to order categories
- Individual pictures can be set to either private or public
- Allow admins to choose between fixed-size and variable-sized thumbnails (settable in the Admin CP)
- CAPTCHA support (integration of mod written by Hawk)
- Users can now switch between currently installed languages

Changes/minor additions
- A loading animation is displayed when medium or full-sized pictures are loading
- RSS feed now links to pictures' pages (pic_details.php) instead of directly to their direct path
- Admins who were having problems with sendmail can now easily make a few changes in the code and start using smtp instead
- Comments counter displayed in the welcome box on the main page
- Multi-line comments now allowed
- News bar now displayed in a text box and input field changed to a text area (integration of mod written by Hawk)
- Medium picture size is now automatically corrected if it is ever greater than 1024px
(threshold can be modified by user; see the FAQ thread)
- Mini-thumbnails are now displayed for pending pictures and comments (integration of mod written by Hawk)
- JPEG quality is now enforced for medium-sized pictures and watermarks (integration of mod written by Hawk)
- category_no_pics.jpg and video.jpg images changed to .png ones (integration of mod written by Hawk)
- Number of members and last registered member aren't shown on main page if user registration is disabled (integration of mod written by Hawk)
- Additional stats shown in welcome box on main page
- Search updated to a "use any words" one (integration of mod here)
- Comments in pic_details.php are now numbered
- index.htm files placed in all directories (thanks Hawk)
- The php files in the tarball release now have all CR and end-of-line characters stripped (thanks Hawk)

Bugs fixed
- The year value wasn't remembered in register.php
- Comment counter only displayed the first digit when value was greater than 9
- Pictures in Last Added weren't restricted to only those from public categories
- "Not a valid image" bug during uploads fixed
- title set for all images in addition to alt to allow tooltips to show up in Firefox (thanks Spuds)
- "Span spam" removed in showEntry() (thanks Spuds)
- Missing title, pictures in RSS feed's body fixed/improved, you decide
- Rebuilding thumbnails continues gracefully if a particular image can't be read for whatever reason
- Deleting mod-queued pictures deletes their pictures (silly bug)
- A tiny potential security flaw fixed
- "Picture Info" box in pic_details.php got screwed up when direct path was hidden
- Minor XHTML validation issues fixed
- Minor right-to-left layout issues fixed

v0.9.2 DEV to v0.9.4 DEV Upgrade Instructions
==============================


1. Upload ALL the files EXCEPT config.php and installer.php

Since the last release came out so long ago, I couldn't find all the bits of paper that I wrote down the names of the updated files on. To save some time though, you may skip the following files:
* everything in "lib" except phpmailer.php
* everything in skins/default/images except loading.gif and loading_small.gif
* everything in skins/nature/images except loading_small.gif
* everything in skins/techno/images except loading_small.gif

If you'd like a more specific answer, open a new topic and I'll do my best to give you a full list of all the modified files. Alternatively, you can do it yourself by using something like this.

2. Run upgrade_tools/upgrader9.php from your browser to update your MySQL tables.

3. Log in to your Admin CP, scroll to the bottom and click on 'Update Settings'.

Congratulations, you should now be running v0.9.4 DEV!

The goal is to get to v1.0, so everything before that is called a pre-release.

Hi Paul,

Take a look at the accompanied readme.txt file for full instructions on upgrading from any version of the gallery to any other version.

If you have any questions just let me know.
