Release Notes: The source code has been updated to work with the latest Django. Several language translations have been added. The most important new features are self-registration for new users and standalone mode for the screenshot factory.
Release Notes: The server software has been rewritten using the Django framework. It now has a translation system, a Web-based admin interface, and screenshot factory configuration through the Web frontend. The factory software supports more browsers, including Opera on Windows. The license has been upgraded from GPLv2 to GPLv3.
Release Notes: This release concludes the development on the old version 0.3 of Browsershots. The development focus has shifted to version 0.4, and little has changed in the 0.3 branch since the last release. Some minor bugs were fixed, and support for Mac OS X Jaguar was added (converting PDF screenshots).
Release Notes: This release adds support for Firefox on Windows and Mac. For Windows users, there is now a binary package of the ShotFactory that includes the Python interpreter and all required libraries. The source code was cleaned up and the database models were improved.
Release Notes: The new screenshot factory was ported to Windows and Mac OS, and HTTP proxy support and a load limit were added. On the server, a page with browser info for each screenshot was created, and a page for each factory with a list of browsers. Duplicate screenshot requests are ignored, and the submit page now shows only browsers that are currently available on active factories. The blog was moved from Snurf to Trac.
Release Notes: This is a very early Technology Preview release. The software has been rewritten completely since version 0.2.6. There is some basic functionality, but many things don't work yet. The most important changes: PostgreSQL 8.1 replaces MySQL 4.0, the factory interface is now based on XML-RPC rather than plain HTTP, and the license has been changed from GNU GPL 2.0 to the Apache License 2.0. Multi-page merging is now performed on the screenshot factories with a quick and robust hash-based algorithm in pure Python.
Release Notes: The ShotServer user interface was translated to Spanish, French, and Italian. The ShotFactory was ported to Mac OS X and runs with Safari now. Storage of screenshots has been extended from 4 days to "virtually unlimited". The Web site now uses the Snurf blog system and the Trac project manager.
Release Notes: The user interface has been translated to Swedish. Incorrect domain names are now rejected with a DNS lookup. Some filters were added to prevent fraudulent or offensive use. The number of queued jobs per domain was limited to 60. There were a few more small fixes and improvements, and some code cleanup was done.
Release Notes: The table of recent screenshots was changed to a mosaic grid, and is now also available in a "fullscreen" mode. The overview of all screenshots for one URL was changed to a vertical layout with detailed information about all browsers. In the screenshot factory, the rendering time for MSIE in QEMU was increased.
Release Notes: The user interface was translated to Finnish and Estonian. Database performance on the server was improved considerably. The screenshot factory for MSIE 6.0 was updated to use Flash 7 and cookies, but only half the RAM. A number of other small improvements and bugfixes were made.
