Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Entangle is an open-source software that allows the user to take photos with digital cameras, controlled from the computer.
The latest version available is Entangle “Strange” 0.6.1, which has been released a while ago, coming with the below changes:
- Require GTK >= 3.4
- Fix check for GIO package in configure
- Add missing icons to Makefile
- Follow freedesktop thumbnail standard storage location
- Refactor capture code to facilitate plugin script automation
- Fix bug causing plugin to be displayed more than once
- Make histogram height larger
- Strip trailing ‘2’ from widget labels to be more friendly
- Completely rewrite control panel display to show a small, user configurable subset from all the camera controls.
- Remember custom list of camera controls per camera model
- Hide compiler warnings from new glib atomic opertaions
- Update to newer gnulib compiler warnings code
- Remove broken double buffering code that’s no required when using GTK3
- Remove use of deprecated GtkMisc APis
- Allow camera picker list to show multiple lines
- Remove crufty broken code from session browser that was breaking with new GTK versions
- Disable libraw auto brightness since it totally overexposes many images, generally making things look worse
- Fix memory leak handling camera events
- Add keywords to desktop & appdata files
