    New version available -> fotoxx 22.41-1~xtradeb1

    Changes:
       * New upstream release.
        - Bugfix: add missing library file in the appimage container.
    
  5. Updates says:

    New version available -> fotoxx 22.40-1~xtradeb1

    Changes:
       * New upstream release.
        - Defog: improved algorithm, new controls to add brightness, reduce blue.
        - Thumbnail popup image: zoom in/out via mouse wheel, +/- keys, arrow keys.
        - Manage Tags: categories having no tags can now be deleted.
        - Gallery metadata view: extra [user custom] indexed metadata items are now
          displayed following the standard items.
        - Gallery Screen: option added to select only files than have been edited.
        - Copy From Image: source and destination sync points both default to (0,0).
          This avoids the need to set the sync points for images that are already
          naturally overlaid, e.g. edited versions of the same image.
        - Tags per category limit was increased from 2K to 20K characters.
        - Some fatal error messages now have popups in addition to log file output
          (no need to hunt for the log file to get error details).
        - Bugfix: user guide [recent] picklist: hang dead if no choice is made.
        - Bugfix: widgets for curve editing via mouse: sometimes refused to resize.
        - Bug workaround: GDK sometimes fails to update window (started with U22.04,
          gone after point release, returned with next point release).
    
  6. Updates says:

    New version available -> fotoxx 22.35-1~xtradeb1

    Changes:
       * New upstream release.
        - Tools > Preferences renamed to Settings (conform with common convention).
        - Settings: the max. number of parallel working threads can be set by the user.
          (default value: number of CPU processor cores available)
        - New: Gallery > Gallery Screen: a quick and easy method to show one of the following gallery subsets: original images only, newest versions only, both of these, only unedited images, and/or those matching a text pattern.
        - New: Tools > Measure Image: click any two image positions to measure the pixel distances between the two positions: horizontal, vertical, and total.
        - New: Local Retinex can be mouse-painted to defog or enhance selected areas.
        - F11: if already fullscreen with menus, keep fullscreen and remove menus and panel (avoid toggle to unfullscreen first, then fullscreen without menus)
        - Settings > RAW Loader: there is a new option to provide a custom command to use for converting RAW files to .tif and loading them for subsequent edits.
        - If the last file in a gallery is deleted or trashed, open the previous file.
         (unchanged: deleting a NOT-last file opens the next file in the gallery.)
        - Bugfix: cancel a running search via escape key was not working.
    
  7. Updates says:

    New version available -> fotoxx 22.31-1~xtradeb2

    Changes:

        - Slide Show: [Start] begins with the first image in the album.
          [Resume] begins with the last image shown, or the one selected by clicking its thumbnail.
        - Denoise: 'flatten' method was improved - good for fine-grain noise.
        - Bugfix: denoise: poss. crash if 'voodoo' method mouse-painted at image edge.
        - Bugfix: Windows WSL: disable escape --> quit (auto kills next session).

    Changes:

    – Slide Show: ‘paplay’ replaced with ‘vlc’ to support more audio file types.
    – Slide Show: [Start] begins with the first image in the album. [Resume] begins with the last image shown, or the one selected by clicking its thumbnail.

  9. Updates says:

    New version available -> fotoxx 22.30-1~xtradeb1

    Changes:
    * New upstream release.
    – Slide Show: new transition type: flip-tiles.
    – Keyboard numeric pad can be used for gallery navigation (also with num-lock).
    – New: Download Maps: download geographic map files for use with Fotoxx (fotoxx-maps package is now obsolete for fotoxx-22.30 and later).
    – Increase gesettings timeout to avoid bogus “not responding” from Mutter.
    – UI improvement: mouse-click with tiny motion is not mistaken as drag.
    – The program addr2line (package binutils) must be installed for Fotoxx. Previoulsy it was included in the appimage container, but this no longer works over multiple flavors and releases of Linux.
    – Bugfix: Adjust RGB: undo/redo was not working correctly.
    – Bugfix: New Session failed if current file contained embedded quotes.
    – Bugfix: Poss. crash if [ALL] folder tree raced up/down using arrow keys.
    – Bugfix: Flatten Photo: Possible crash with extreme flattening.
    – Bugfix: minor memory leak in gallery display code.

  10. Updates says:

    New version available -> fotoxx 22.20-1~xtradeb1

    Changes:
    * New upstream release.
    * New: Batch > Convert Adobe: convert an Adobe document file (.pdf .ps .eps) into a set of jpeg files, 1 file per page. This uses ghostscript.
    * Warp > Stretch: Add or remove barrel or pincushion distortion. This can fix RAW file lens distortion when lens parameters are missing or ineffective.
    * Gallery Sort: new: sort by metadata from the Search function metadata report (e.g. sort results by camera + ISO + exposure time).
    * The function to add an overlay image (for credit, copyright …) to selected host images was moved from Batch Convert to a new function, Batch Overlay.
    The overlay image can also be placed anywhere on the host images.
    * Image captions can now be sourced from any metadata items.
    * The utility to map camera pixel bias and compensate image files was removed.
    It was too difficult to use and not very effective (for the cameras tested).

  11. Updates says:

    New version available -> fotoxx 22.15-1~xtradeb1

    Changes:
    * New upstream release.
    * Windows WSL: speedup code was removed. Fotoxx under WSL is fast enough for image files in the Linux file system, e.g. /home//Pictures/…
    * Windows WSL: use higher tolerance for file mod-time difference detection.
    * New: Rename Folder: rename the current folder (image gallery).
    * Album Create: better UI direction when creating an initially empty album.
    * New: Batch Copy/Move: copy or move selected image files to a new folder.
    * Show RGB: reduce CPU loading: repaint only if a monitored pixel changes.
    * Developer menu: New: toggle display of popup text for mouse events.
    * Preferences: image justification in window can be left/center/right.
    * “Select Hairy” was incorporated into the main Select Area function.
    This is now easier to use, but still a significant learning curve.
    * New: Tools > Popup Text: popup special text/characters to use in edits.
    * Bugfix: Remove Halo: ‘undo’ drag: crash if pixel RGB is 0/0/0.
    * Bugfix: Crop: drag crop edge over window edge: drag fails to release.
    * Bugfix: Select > Edge Blend: zero contrast area creates ‘nan’ RGB values.
    * Bugfix: Markup > Oval: stop automatic draw of prior oval.
    * Bugfix: Copy From Image: set current scale into dialog widget.
