Last changelog:

9 years ago

Version 2.1.1
- Fixed earthshots engine.
- German translation updated ( thanks to Daniel Schemala )
Version 2.1
- Slide show
- www.bonjourmadame.fr provider by Yann Nave(yannux)
- French translation by Yann Nave(yannux)
- German translation by Daniel Schemala

Version 2.0
- Too many changes :) Requires KDE 4.4

Version 1.2
- Added Wikipedia data engine. Thanks to t3ddy. Only Latin languages are supported due to problems with nonlatin characters in KUrl :(
- Parsing of National Geographic page is modified to match new design of the web page
- Added possibility for translations.

Version 1.1
- Added smooth transition between photos. They smoothly fade in and fade out and adjust their sizes.
- Added info dialog for data engines
- Added two new data engines: Steve`s digicams and Astronomy Picture of the day

Version 1.0 beta
- Full rework of applet painting
- Now applet uses data engines to receive photos. Applet - data engine communication is through standart Plasma API function, so I think it is possible a data engine to be written in any supported by Plasma language. (If someone is interested, please send me a e-mail or write a comment)
- Error messages are drawn as part of image and disappear in 10 seconds.
- Customizable check for new photo interval.

Version 0.6
- Add smooth transition between photos

Lot of code has been rewritten so please let me know if you detect regressions or bugs.

Version 0.5.2
-Fix all(I hope) compilation problems with KDE 4.2

Version 0.5.1
-Fix compilation on KDE 4.2

Version 0.5

Version 0.2

-Fixed network detection problems
-Check if photo changed on every one hour
-In case of failure try to load previously saved photo

I think I solve the problem. I`ve used a signal that will be included in KDE 4.3 :)

No, I am with KDE 4.3 and it seems that there are a lot of changes in API :( I`m installing on my virtual machine a few of the most polular distros so I will compile the pasmoid ot them and then I`ll released it :)

I would like to ask you if you think about adding frame and round corners as in Photoframe plasmoid? It would be nice... :-)

taskstruct

Yes, I think to add frame and round corners :) I have and some other ideas which I`ll try to implement in 0.3 and 0.4

In next 2-3 weeks I have exams in university so 0.3 may be delayed a little :(

A system for calling a script that returns the photo's url it would be useful.

Unfortunately I received a message from plasmoid: "No network avaible! Unable to get photo from National Geographic website." Of course my computer is connected to the internet and the other plasmoids work fine (e.g. transloid). Any idea?

Hm, I just check if Solid::Networking::status() is Connected. May be for some reason Solid doesn`t return your network status correctly. :(

I think I can improve network detection to fix this problem and will make new release in the coming days.
