0.9.8 (Harriet) release from the 0.9 series released 2010-07-10

Release information
Release notes:

Create Background Slideshow 0.9.8 brings a number of improvements to the user interface, following the GNOME human interface guidelines: accelerator keys and keyboard shortcuts have been added; image previews appear in the file chooser dialog; thumbnails in the main window are spread evenly to avoid a large right-hand border; and new error dialogs provide extra feedback should a problem arise.
An important change to note is that the transition time is now considered to be part of the duration, meaning that less arithmetic is required to create a slideshow of a particular length. Also toward that goal, an experimental 'fit to length' feature can be tried to automatically adjust image durations in order to keep the slideshow's length constant.
Adding to the internationalisation, the Turki...

Changelog:

  * Added Turkish translation
  * Updated translation template
  * Updated man page
  * Experimental feature: automatically adjusts default image duration to
    create a slideshow of a particular length
  * Display style (Tile, Zoom, Stretch, etc.) can be specified
  * Only seconds are affected by the decimal point
  * Transition time is now considered to be part of the image's display time
  * Image thumbnails in the main window are spread to minimize the right-hand
    border when the window isn't quite large enough to accomodate another
    column.
  * Preview thumbnails added to the 'Add Images' dialog
  * Error dialogs added for:
        files that could not be added;
        problems saving slideshows;
        when the wallpaper can't be changed automatically.
  * GUI amended to better comply with the GNOME human interface guidelines
        Improved keyboard interation (shortcuts, accelerator keys)
        Button ordering
        "Hours" placed at the top of combobox lists

0.9.4 (Dormouse) release from the 0.9 series released 2010-06-09

Release information
Release notes:

Create Background Slideshow 0.9.4 simplifies the user interface by splitting the default and selected-image timings between separate tabs. This makes getting started with the application less confusing, and reduces the amount of repeated information displayed when the selected image uses default timings or when no image is selected at all.

Under the bonnet, 0.9.4 paves the way for local-language versions, by adopting the gettext method of internationalising user-interface text, and includes a template file ready for translators to begin work on.

Changelog:

Simplified user interface by splitting timings between two tabs.
Started internationalisation process
