Huzzah!

Great to see Advance Slide Show plugin (Ken Burns effect FTW!) working with compositing. Any idea if the bug with Advance Slideshow never looping was fixed? I never reported it (Kipi 1.4), so if you had no idea it existed, my bad :)

Facebook Album bug not fixed?

I grabbed the 1.7.0 version, but I'm still running into the issue of not being able to select the album to upload pictures into. This was one of the things I was hoping would be fixed, and the release notes say it is, but I don't see a change in behavior.

Nice job

Nice work. I was wondering how did you put the Lock/Logout widget to be vertical. By default it's horizontal. I really like the way it is in the photo.

Lock/Logout widget

if you increase the vertical size of the panel enough, the lock/logout widget will automatically get vertical - that's how it worked for me anyway ;)

Where did the duplicate

Where did the duplicate images search tool go? It was a perfect plugin for Gwenview when managing my images. I have tried Digikam but it's overly complex for my tastes.

Archive plugin

Is Archive plugin included again? k3b is already a part of the new KDE. If not included are there plans to include it?

Archive plugin

as it still does not seem to be included - I'd like to vote for this too! Would be a great extension.
Btw, the kipi-plugins.org site is quite outdated.

flashexport translations

what happened to the translations of the flashexport plugin? - they have vanished from the po directory of kipi-plugins 1.7.0

same for

same for kipiplugin_flickrexport, kipiplugin_galleryexport, kipiplugin_htmlexport, kipiplugin_picasawebexport, kipiplugin_piwigoexport, kipiplugin_ipodexport, kipiplugin_kioexportimport, kipiplugin_expoblending

tarballs fixed in sf.net

Today, Nicolas has updated tarballs in sourceforge.net repository to include missing translations files.
