libopenraw 0.0.6

Last week-end I silently released libopenraw 0.0.6. It was almost a year since I hadn't done a release, and it was long overdue.

Amongst the changes are:

  • Relicensed to LGPLv3 or later
  • NEF decompress
  • GdkPixbuf loader
  • Various fixes and new APIs

@ebassi: just pushed shave support to Niepce. Does that count as number 2?

Over the last week I spent some time rewriting bits of the AbiWord Gtk+ code to build with GTK_DISABLE_DEPRECATED defined. It took longer than expected as I originally thought that it was no more than 4 dialogs, but I was wrong... It is like a can of worm. I also fixed a few bugs in the mean time.

Thanks to Owen, Niepce Digital source code repository has been moved to git.

See the cgit interface for the details.

The good, the bad and the ugly

I'll do them in reverse order.

  • The ugly is that I got downsized. I won't comment on what I read on the Internet when the CEO talks about acquisition, but then lay off his own people.
  • The bad is that I only have an aging laptop left with keys that don't work like arrows and return. See above if you plan to suggest I buy a new one.
  • The good is that I'll have more time for my projects. See the second item to see if that will really be productive. Can't be that bad.
