Release Notes

Description

Version 3.0.0
Happy New Year. Just got this done during XMAS season. Can you imagine I am crazy coding in XMAS? LOL
Hasn't make new releases for quite awhile now. I was busy doing other stuff. Besides, I need more time to test out my software and more feedbacks from my friends.
This is a major release since I got a cool new 3D Home and Movie Player.
This version also improves a lot of memory usage and user experience.

New Feature and Changes:

Bug fix on some background workers. Before, I didn't lock the shared resource and it ends up Cleared before a Dequeue.
Bug fix on version checker. (01/03)
Disable Gallery Database Import due to XML limitations. Limited characters causes application to crash. (01/03)
Improve overall image loading memory usage. I no longer load the full image and scale it down. I decode it at desired resolution.
Improve database consistency. A full database checkup after 5 seconds.
Improve thumb creation. No more background color to save few storage spaces. Multi-Level thumb queue design. All thumbs will be all created by priorities.
Add real time thumb resize. The thumb size in Preferences is only for info. You can change it to smaller if you want. However, it only saves few storage spaces, not memory usage.
Add 3D Home Page. I used the 3DPanel from Code Project. I make it so that I can have many 3DPanels and only first page is interactive.
Add Movie Player. Responsive Progress Slider and Cool Thumbnails that are actually playing movies.
Add one more style for SlideShow. This is for photo viewing.
Add Context Menu (Right Click) for less confusing navigation and cool added features.
Add View In SlideShow. Instead of view SlideShow from first photo, it is started from the selected photo.
Improve image mouse over visual.
Improve navigation experience. Behavior is more intuitive and the hidden mode behaves in the same pattern.
Remove Image Pop-Up feature. I find it quite annoying when I click a thumb, it pops up the large photo. Cool at first, but it is actually annoying.
Consolidate Navigation Modes. Reduced from 3 to 2, and the second one is hidden for less confusion.
Update Default File Type. Since I tested out some of the common image and video file type for .Net 3.0.

Requires:

.Net Framework 3.0
