Gallery Server Pro 2.6.1 is now available. It contains a handful of bug fixes and – for those using the SQL CE database engine – up to 50% faster synchronization performance. My previous blog post details the performance enhancements. Upgrading your gallery from 2.5 or 2.6.0 is as easy as copying the files from the upgrade package over your existing files (always do a backup first!). If upgrading from an earlier version or using the DotNetNuke module, refer to the Admin Guide. The bug fixes in 2.6.1 are shown below. More details can be found in the 2.6.1 Defects Report. A COMException may be thrown when adding an image or performing a synchronization. An IOException may be thrown when adding an image or performing a synchronization. Page may hang during file upload. Profile settings for users do not always reflect the most current data. The server's memory cache is not [...]

You know, I wasn’t planning to release a version 2.6. Right after 2.5 was released a few months ago, I started cranking away on version 3, which is a significant release that adds all the top features you voted for in the poll. It was coming along great when something happened. A fan of GSP came along and was willing to pay good money if I immediately added two features: (1) on-the-fly encoding of AVI videos to the web-friendly MP4 format, and (2) the ability to select multiple files in one step on the add objects page. So I added those features to the 2.5 codebase and gave it to the client as a custom build. These are features many of you would find useful, so I will soon be releasing version 2.6 to bring them – and a few bonus features - to you. Here is the complete list: [...]
