Freshmeat page:


galapix is an image viewer that allows you to directly zoom into large collection of tens of thousand of images from tiny thumbnails down to the images original size fluently with very short load times and no loss of interactivity. It accomplishes this by keeping a tile cache which stores not only thumbnails for one size, but thumbnails of many different sizes. This thumbnail cache requires at maximum 1.5x times as much storage as the images themselves. galapix can also be used to view gigapixel sized images, it however currently requires the tiles for that to be generated previously, which can take quite a bit of time and memory. galapix supports a wide varity of image formats including JPEG, PNG, XCF (Gimp), KRA (Krita) and all stuff supported by ImageMagick.

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.

If you're a C programmer with some spare time, take a look at the mod_virgule project page and help us with one of the tasks on the ToDo list!
