Intipunku 0.4 final!

Intipunku 0.4 is out.

Many new features, more stability. What can I say Intipunku is maturing.

For debian and ubuntu users i have written a new installer. I may be a bit buggy, be sure to have no errors in the apt database and close all apt using programs. If it hangs, close it and try it again.

Mac users, this is the first release for Mac, please report bugs, on the issue page on the website there are instructions how to do this.

Thanks for everyone that have contributed to this release,

Intipunku 0.4 pre3 released

This is the last pre-release before 0.4 final.

Highlights: some very important bugfixes. Many exif data have copied wrong in previous version, but now it should be fixed.

Although new features should not be added anymore I will do some anyway for the final release:
- Automatic import of raw photos. They will be detected and converted to tiff or jpeg
- Version notify, when a new version is released it will notify upon startup

You can help the project by translating and reporting bugs (-> launchpad)

Hi people I want to announce release 0.4~pre1.
You can try out the newest features and see if they work good. Please report bugs! (->Launchpad please).

I will also soon launch the website of intipunku.

Now in bazaar we have flickr support. Works good. Many people have requested this feature, so here it is.
It will be included in the 0.4 release.
The 0.4 release will not take so long anymore. Probably some of the features i promised earlier will not be included. Anyway, user-friendlyness, speed, extra features and os-independency will be improved

Mac OSX!

I announce that I successfully compiled all dependencies to MacOSX and that next release will support Mac OSX.
Thanks to gtk native for mac project, intipunku can totally integrate into the Mac OSX environment.

Thoughts for the 0.4

Been a while since i have done anything with the project. However, i'm currently planning features for the newest version.
For sure i will implement:
- Timeline like in f-spot
- Export to swf movie (you will be able to export to a swf slideshow, so you can put it on websites and stuff).
- Move default ajustments. Currently we have auto-contrast, equalize and sepia. This will be:
* Autocontrast
* Equalize
* Sepia
* Winter
* Summer
* Autumn
* And more i will come up with
- Ability to add comments to photos
- I will support more types, jpg, png, tiff, gif.

Is any feature missing please inform me!

0.3 Released!

I have released the latest version of Intipunku.

Thanx translators for your contribution. Intipunku now is available in various languages: catalan, spanish, dutch, swedish, italian, german, french and russian.
Under windows in the installer you have to pick the language, this will set the user variable LANG to the supported language.

Currently there are only binaries for ubuntu and window$. Soon i expect other pages.

Any bug please report at the issue page:; I receive emails of changes in this list, so i can reply as soon as posible.

Thanx for your interest in Intipunku.

All translations are now done through launchpad. Regularly i will upload a new message.pot so you can update all other translations.
Currently i have done the translations of spanish, dutch and catalan for 100% enjoy.

0.3 Pre 3

People, I suppose that this is the last pre version. I did basically all the features. Some important things, you can now use the viewer only with the intipunku-viewer command, it should also appear under nautilus. You can also use intipunku-import for the import wizard, in settings it can be configured as the default importer for cameras. Many other improvements have been done and such. Try it out on the download page.

Notice, I really need translators. The work is simple and not to hard.

About the name

The project is named IntiPunku this is Aymara/Quechua for Sun Gate. Intipunku is a gate in the lost city of Tiahuanacu, considerably the oldest city known to men. However it is not a very known place, neither is the country is it is in (Bolivia). In my opinion the country lacks interest of the world and therefore research to recover and find out what happened at Tiahuanacu. To promote the interest in the cause I named the project Sun Gate (Inti Punku).

If you'd like to read more, the internet is full of information. I recommend this blog:

0.3 coming

The newest version of Intipunku is almost ready. I can almost say the program has changed completely. It has gotten more mature. It is more user friendly, more stable and more feature rich. I have added various filters than can enhance you photos significantly.
The project is up2date translated in English, Catalan, Spanish and Dutch, since nobody is helping me in the project i can only translate to the languages that i know sufficiently.
After 0.3 I will add more features and bugfixes, however i must say with the release of 0.3 the project base has been set.
Before the project was intended to be a clone of Picasa, however i feel that project has gone beyond the funcionality of any photo manager. Therefore i also work on port for windows, it is a pain it the ass, since Intipunku depends on various unix only programs. I did manage to create ports of all of them fortunately, including gphoto2!!!

Project is alive!!

Since I have not made any release lately, people might think the project is dead. However this is absolutely not the case. I am just waiting to get some user, so i have motivation continueing development. I use the project daily, so i will keep developing.
Planned features for 0.3 release are:
- improved picasaweb album support
- create panoramas (now in svn!)
- import photos from camera
- Fix annoying bugs (in particular, the program doesnt start if it doesnt understand a file)
