Paolo Bacchilega had the pleasure to announce that gThumb 3.3.1 is available for download, a release that brings several new features, as well as user visible changes. gThumb is an open source, easy-to-use, and intuitive image viewer and browser utility that is mostly used under the powerful GNOME desktop environment.gThumb 3.3.1 is the first maintenance release of the development 3.x series. It now employs the dark theme, a GtkHeaderBar is now used instead of a toolbar and a menu, adds better support for RAW images, a frame is now displayed around an image in the image viewer, and zoomed images are presented in a better quality.
Users will now be able to use an overview window if they want to scroll an image instead of using the scrollbars, big image files will load a lot faster, the mediabar is automatically hidden after a timeout in the media player, selections can now be viewed via buttons on the Filterbar, and only the basic properties are now displayed in the file properties dialog.
Moreover, gThumb 3.3.1 uses a grid layout for the buttons, uses a separate dialog for the file tool options, uses symbolic icons everywhere, adds a rating-based filter, introduces a custom TIFF loader, removes the “keyboard shortcuts” entry from the App Menu, and saves and restores the scale type in the Histogram view.
Last but not least, lots of bugs have been squashed and several translations have been updated in gThumb 3.3.1, including Brazilian Portuguese, Catalan, Czech, Dutch, Spanish, Hungarian, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Latvian, Polish, Russian, Serbian, and Slovenian. Furthermore, the Czech, Slovenian, and Spanish manual translations have also been added.
Download the gThumb 3.3.1 right now from Softpedia, but keep in mind that it is a development release and it should not be used on production machines as it still contains bugs.
