Release 1.8.28

Monday, December 21st, 2009

We’ve been working quietly for the last little while, so we feel it’s time for an update.

We managed to simplify a lot the geotagging process. Since we all use the slideshow to view the pictures, the easiest way to geotag would be to just drag the picture - or a bunch of pictures - over the map inside the slideshow.

And that’s what we did. Check it out, it’s very cool.

The slideshow has two modes, the “show one picture” and the “show all pictures”. The geotagging feature works for both of them:

  • in “show one picture” mode, just open the map and drag & drop the thumbnails from the left hand side column;
  • in “show all pictures” mode use the Manage pictures menu to enable select/multiple-select so you can drag & drop pictures over the map.

The Manage pictures menu also features an enhanced Delete functionality so you can multiple-select pictures to delete. This makes it much easier to delete a bunch of pictures at once, which comes in handy when someone uploads by mistake the wrong pictures.

We plan to release new features that will fit great under the Manage picture menu. Stay tuned!

And last, but not least, the obligatory eye candy:

Release 1.8.14

Tuesday, August 11th, 2009

It’s summer, it’s fun, and life is good!

A bit rainy here in Toronto (who am I kidding, it rains as if we are at the tropics!), keeping us a bit more productive than a usual summer :)

Here are the highlights of this release:

  • Redesigned slideshow: the new one is slicker, meaner, and all around cooler. Some of you have pushed us in this direction, and we love the end result. Kudos!
  • Enhanced support for itinerary legs that are to be travelled on foot or bike (as opposed to a motor vehicle);
  • Better browser compatibility, especially IE8;
  • The usual little fixes and cleanups.

And now the obligatory eye candy:
