With its version number jumping up almost as fast as a kid on a bouncy castle, Yorba have announced a new release of digital photo manager Shotwell.

Version 0.9.2 of Shotwell contains numerous ‘critical publishing bugs’ that fix issues with Flickr, Picasa web albums and more.

Specific fixes include: –

  • Fixes issue where cancelling Flickr upload can crash Shotwell
  • Fixes issue where creating a Picasa Web album with an ampersand in the name crashes Shotwell
  • Resolves bug where selecting “Publish” in single photo mode publishes the entire library instead of the selected photo
  • Fixes issue with ratings filter where it didn’t function when the search bar was hidden

Full change-log can be read online here.


Yorba maintain a PPA with packages for the latest Shotwell packaged for Ubuntu 10.10 @ launchpad.net/~yorba/+archive/ppa.

The PPA also contains older versions of Shotwell for Ubuntu 9.10 and 10.04.
