v8.80.0005 - 2009-12-30 14:12

BETA versions are now only available for registered users.
Find the download link at the bottom of the License Lounge.

  • + Configuration | Thumbnails: Added option "Create all thumbnails at once". Check it to have all thumbnails in the current list created at once (not just the ones that are currently visible in the viewport).
    Enabling this option is only advisable if also "Cache thumbnails on disk" is enabled because then the work will have to be done only once. Otherwise browsing large image folders will become slow again and again.
    Note that even with "Cache thumbnails on disk" enabled this new setting makes browsing a bit slower on fully cached folders. So, if all or most of your folders are already fully cached, you can (very) slightly increase speed by disabling "Create all thumbnails at once".
  • + Toolbar: The context menu of the buttons related to list views now features a command "Create All Thumbnails Now". Here you can have all thumbnails in the current list created for *this* list, without having the global "Create all thumbnails at once" enabled in Configuration | Thumbnails.
