Gallery 2.0 Released!
We are incredibly pleased to announce the release of Gallery 2.0! Over three years of design and development have gone into creating the best online photo management product possible. Gallery 2.0 is the natural successor to Gallery 1, and we hope that you like what you see. Don't wait, download Gallery 2 now!
If you haven't seen it before, we've assembled some Gallery 2 screen shots that you can look at, hosted in a version of Gallery 2 that's embedded in this Drupal based website. For other examples of the cool things that you can do with Gallery 2, you can check out just a few of the demo sites that users have created and posted in our forums. Especially check out the highlights to get an idea of what you can do with Gallery 2's powerful theming system.
While Gallery 2 is a very feature complete photo management system, it still lacks a few of the features found in Gallery 1. However, Gallery 2's modular design will let us quickly catch up and provide you with everything that you need. To get an idea of the Gallery 2 feature list, and how it stacks up with Gallery 1, you should read the Gallery 1 vs. Gallery 2 Celebrity Deathmatch article in the Gallery Codex.
If you're a Gallery 1 user, we recommend that you install Gallery 2 side-by-side with your existing gallery, and then use the migration tool to import all of your data into Gallery 2. This won't affect your Gallery 1 at all, and if you're happy with what you see you can switch over permanently. We even offer a way for you to preserve all your old Gallery 1 urls so that your transition is seamless.
If you're upgrading from an older version of Gallery 2, all you need to do is unpack the new version on top of whatever you already have and then point your browser at your Gallery and follow the instructions. If you're installing Gallery 2 for the first time, you should be sure to read the README for instructions. Upgrading is pretty straight forward, but if you're interested you should read the What's New section of the README.
We hope that you enjoy using Gallery 2, and if you have problems, ideas, feature suggestions, or just want to chat about it please do not hesitate to come talk to us in the Gallery 2 Forums!
