Roger Martin did it again. His newest version of Gallery Server Pro was released last week. Here is Roger’s Version 2.5 release announcement with the details. One of the reasons I couldn’t resist upgrading Sueetie within days of the release was the fact that Roger streamlined the app by removing the Ajax Control Toolkit, SQLite (replaced by SQL CE and Entities), three Microsoft Enterprise Practices libraries as well as three other libraries.
Gallery Server Pro 2.5 will be available to everyone in the next Sueetie Release, v3.3. As with any Sueetie Application Upgrade, apart from the upgrade itself is applying the Sueetie Framework extensions. Some of the framework extensions in Gallery Server Pro are membership integration, Recent Photos display, tying gallery, album and media object activity into Sueetie Data Core, Media Sets, Tagging, Event Calendar integration, Blog Post Thumbnails and Document List View. Here’s a screenshot of the Sueetie Document List View Extension for Gallery Server Pro. (Document List View is a great feature. I just don’t have a use for it on Sueetie.com so I don’t link to it.)
I’ve always been a Gallery Server Pro fan and love the direction Roger is going with it. He continues to add new features while at the same time making the application lighter and faster with each new release.
There’s not a lot going on in the Sueetie Media Gallery. Sorry about that! I’m more of a Word Guy I guess. Since I’ve been keeping my personal site Sueetie v3.2 Current, I of course had to upgrade the DBVT.COM photo gallery to Gallery Server Pro 2.5! Check it out if you want to see the splendor and speed of GSP in a gallery with 1000’s of photos.
