Eye of Gnome 2.7.0


a new release of 'Eye of Gnome' is available. The by far biggest change for the default GNOME image viewer is the removal of the bonobo components. It comes now as a monolithic program again and makes use of the new wonderful GtkUIManager API. This change leads to great speed improvements and a much better user interface. On the shadow side the Nautilus "View as Collection" component isn't available anymore. It's planned to provide a new Nautilus extension in the future as a replacement.

  • Other changes are:
    • Display image info in 'single image' and 'image collection' view.
    • Better metadata reader
    • Speed improvements
    • New icons for flipping transformations
    • "Save As" function in collection view (with ability to rename and convert images in a row)
    • "Delete" function
  • Translation Updates:
