PhotoQt v188.8.131.52: Updates to photoqt.appdata.xml
>> Published: 12th of September 2016
It has been a little while since there has been anything going on here, about 3 months. My apologies for once again having such a long break in the development! Over the past few months I finished my Masters degree in Scientific Computing (if you're curious, here's a copy of the final version of my thesis) and moved from St. John's in Newfoundland (Canada) to Champaign, IL, in the United States of America where I'll be working as a research assistant at the University of Illinois for one year. However, finishing up my Masters and moving countries has taken up pretty much all of my free time over the past many weeks... But I'm back now :-)
PhotoQt v184.108.40.206 is only a very tiny update to the photoqt.appdata.xml file. It doesn't change any code, so if you are only interested in running PhotoQt, there is no need to upgrade to this newer version. However, the updates are necessary for including PhotoQt in the software center. The software center is a place for software (no surprise there) and can be used from various distributions, although a lot of its users come from Ubuntu flavours.
This is all there is to say about this change. I am currently working on implementing better support for mouse gestures and also touch gestures. It will be a little while before this will be ready for use, but it's on its way and it's looking quite promising already :-)
Stay tuned and enjoy PhotoQt!
