New Development Release: Qdig 20050412

This release has a mix of changes. Some of them affect unusual installations and others optimize and simplify the script. Comments were added / reworded to make them easier to understand. Pages with thumbnail links now load significantly faster (up to 30% in testing), and the page title now contains the image name.

Notes:

This release is full of changes that are designed to make the script more reliable, efficient, and predictable. Some comments in the script were added / clarified.

There are a couple of minor new features, the most noticeable of which is that by default the filename is included in the page title of stand-alone galleries now.

The most significant change is that Qdig now builds thumbnails image links significantly faster. Under testing, a page in a 151-image gallery was produced up to 30% faster.

Changes:

  • Added homemade REQUEST_URI for Win32 servers that are missing it.
  • Added filename-in-title option, enabled by default, for stand-alone Qdig.
  • Now automatically cleaning up absolute URL and filesystem paths.
  • Generating on-the-fly thumbnails works with absolute paths now.
  • Reworked imageThumbsLinks() function. Performance is considerably better.
  • Improved "Check for IM or GD" logic. Now it's simpler and more reliable.

See CHANGELOG.txt for a complete list of changes.
