From Gallery Codex

Project Tasks

Gallery 2.2.2

  • Released, yay!

Gallery 2.3

  • SnapGalaxy in trunk.
  • Talmdal working on input validation task, should have a design document ready by early next week.
  • Language manager progress slowed down a bit, jozefs should have something for review soon.
  • Bharat working on comments/akismet module.
    • The comments module will be used as a test-bed for publish/unpublish GalleryComment entity methods implemented via permissions
    • The above concept can later be refactored into core.
    • We can have publishing queues, but use permissions to control visibility when you're in a queue.

    • Main priority is integrating image manipulations.

  • Still waiting for an update from Jeff Ward on docs, but he has been very active.

GalleryCon 2007
