Gallery 1.5.6 Released!

Gallery 1.5.6 is now available for download. This is primarily a bug fix release but also includes a couple of minor new features. Even though this release contains no security fixes, we recommend that all users of Gallery 1.5.5-pl1 and earlier upgrade to this release to be as bug free as possible. You can download 1.5.6 from the Gallery 1 download page on SourceForge. Upgrade instructions are available on our documentation site.

Issues resolved in this release:

  • User language was not set properly when logging in
  • Users with permission to add comments could add comments even when they were globally disabled
  • Navigator could jump to incorrect next or previous page
  • Port was stripped from URLs
  • The EXIF information for some Sony cameras were misreported

New functionality:

  • Album validator is more effective
  • Postnuke 0.8 is supported
  • Recursive "email me when comments are added" is now available
  • Capture dates can be rebuilt from files when jhead/exiftags is installed after items were added

Thanks for all the hard work on the new version of Gallery! When does 1.6 go live/final? I notice it's been in Beta3 for a while and we're trying to decide between 1.5.6 and 1.6.
