I would like to announce a new project that I have been working on for a little while now: December.

For a long time I have been taking the SD card from my camera to browse photos using my Zaurus. I'm not keen on PhotoStorage (clunky interface even if it was translated). I'm been using the Qtopia imageviewer but I have always suspected it doesn't take advantage of the EXIF thumbnail. Furthermore, if the photo is in a different orientation to the screen then it always comes out bad: squeezed to fit rather than rotating it because a user can just use his hand to turn the Zaurus.

I was thinking it would be cool to have something like a camera OS on the Zaurus to flip through images quickly. Also, whenever I go somewhere with my other half as soon as I take a photo she wants to check it out and make sure it is "satisfactory". If you go to get a coffee or lunch she wants to get the camera out and review all the images. This kills the camera battery so if I could do this on the Zaurus then it would save battery and the screen is better too.

So here it is, the first release of December. It's not perfect but it doesn't crash and it's mostly complete. Please be aware that when opening the grid view December has to load up to 16 thumbs into memory and Zaurus memory is not particularly fast. Video files don't have thumbs so they must be generated and opening the full screen view means generating a scaled image which can be slow if you are looking at a several megapixel image.

New version released, 0.5: Now with refresh function and facility to clear cache manually.

I didn't mention version 0.4 that was released a few weeks back. In 0.4 a new function to delete files was added.

There have also been various small bug fixes.

Hi,

I have installed and tried your program, I like it! It's fast and intuitive, now my Zaurus is even more useful than before. I'll use it too to check the photos done by my camera. I'd have a couple of feature requests:
- it would be nice if it would be possible to switch between the photos using the cursor keys also when in full screen mode
- again in full screen mode, a small icon, overlayed on the displayed photo and indicating that the photo is loading would be handy.

BTW why is it called that way? smile.gif
