Software Update: Jalbum 8.3.5

Version 8.3.5 of Jalbum was released on Saturday. This program makes it easy to generate and edit professional looking HTML photo albums. In a well-arranged interface, photos can be easily edited, the order can be changed and the appearance of the web page can be determined. Once everything is to your liking, the result can be placed on a web page via the built-in ftp client. Because the software is developed in Java, Jalbum is available for a wide range of operating systems. The following changes and improvements have been made in this release:

News and updates

  • Added option to control if Jalbum attempts to use hardware accelerated image scaling or not. Hardware accelerated scaling is faster, but may produce lower quality on some graphics cards
  • Jalbum’s publish window now automatically reconnects if a connection is disconnected
  • Added support for IPTC location and sub location camera metadata fields

Bug fixes

  • Password protected albums did not always get the padlock indication in the folder tree of Jalbum’s publish window.
  • The blur image tool could cause nullpointer exceptions
  • Password protected albums containing & or ‘ in the album name would never show as password protected in Jalbum’s publish window
  • Foreign characters in EXIF ​​and IPTC string fields would sometimes be misinterpreted. (This mainly affected fields encoded in “ASCII” on Mac computers as these fields would be decoded in the local computer’s default character set (MacRoman on Macs) instead of using the character set set in Jalbum.)
