Sorry, boys & girls

I have to admit, that there is no time left for me to hack on Viewnior. But don't worry, Viewnior 1.0 will be out as soon as possible!

P.S. I also lost all my GPG & SSH keys :(

Going 1.0

I will be brief.
The project was started with "simple and fast". Cropping functionality in the last (0.7) release is the only and ,I assure you, the last exception.
No image editing or photo management tools will be implemented, nor that "ultra mega giga fancy" functionality you may want. As said in the About page, Viewnior is and will be dependent only on gtk+.

Until now Viewnior was facing a new release every month. As a result, it is now stable and functional enough to enter the 1.0 release cycle. The next (0.8) version will become 1.0 and will be released sometime in October.
