I just released Pony 0.4 into the wild. It came out with a 2 days delay :(

Pony is a KDE based image manager. The main feature is to create Collections out of removable devices and watch/search the thumbnails offline (when the media is not attached). New features in this release:

  • shortcut key ‘u’ to get the upload to flickr dialog
  • Hot keys: Now one can assign hotkeys using numeric key board , right now only %f (selected filename) is supported there.

Download the source or you can use this yum repo for Fedora 11.

It is a tool to imporve l10n quality by helping in finding different corner cases. This is being developed as a part of aukur.org.in .
