Project Release Information
You can now download MTS video files and THM video thumbnail files, automatically rotate JPEG images, and extract Exif.CanonFi.FileNumber metadata. There is a new toolbar, showing the most commonly changed configuration options: where files will be transferred from, whether they will be copied or moved, and where they will be transferred to. Several bugs have been fixed, and translations have been updated.
New features were added to specify, in finer detail, from where photos and videos should be downloaded and where they should be backed up to. Nine bugs were fixed, a Danish translation was added, and many other translations were updated.
EXIF Artist and Copyright metadata options were added to file and subfolder name generation. Many translations were updated. Thumbnails are now always sorted by file modification time. The job code is now correctly requested after a preference change. A crash when trying to scan inaccessible files on a mounted camera was fixed. The startup test to check whether pynotify is working was relaxed.
This is the first stable release in the 0.4 series. Compared to version 0.3.6, it sports a clean new user interface and imports about 3 times faster. New features since 0.4.0 RC1 include the ability to select multiple files to check or uncheck for downloading and an automation feature to delete downloaded files from a device.
Backups have been implemented. A preferences option for disabling thumbnail generation was added. A crash that occurred when downloading some files after having previously downloaded others in the same session was fixed. The Brazilian, Dutch, German, and Russian translations were updated.
