Piwigo 2.8 is on track and needs your beta-testing!

Happy new year 2016 to all Piwigo.com users (and other readers of this blog!) We will publish another post later in January talking about our 2016 roadmap, but for now I wanted to share the first good news: Piwigo 2.8 is coming!

Piwigo 2.8 has entered the “release candidate” period. It means we have implemented several features and we need help from the Piwigo community to test it. The more tests we have, the more stable Piwigo 2.8 will be.

What’s new in Piwigo 2.8 compared to Piwigo 2.7?

  • automatic authentication from notification emails
  • orphan photos are more obvious and easy to delete
  • ability to notify users on an album
  • upload progress shown in favicon
  • watermark can be repeated on several lines
  • improvements on user manager
During web upload, the favicon gets animated and shows you the current state. This way you can browse the web on another tab and see how your upload is going on!

All changes are described in the Piwigo.org annoucement : Piwigo 2.8.0RC1.

We need your help to test Piwigo 2.8 Release Candidates. If you want to participate, we will gladly install a test Piwigo 2.8 for you, just tell us!
