We are currently moving all data of Piwigo.org to a new server (faster and more reliable). You may encounter connection problems during the next 24 hours, due to DNS propagation and database redirections.
Let me thank our donators. We have enough money to buy a powerful server. If you also want to help, don't hesitate : Donate page
edited on April 2nd 2013: This was of course an April Fools joke. We have no plans to merge the projects. However, it's true that both projects share the same spirit and have a friendly connection for years. Thanks to the Zenphoto team for joining us with this little fun!
Hi Piwigo Community,
After long negotiations and deliberations the teams of Piwigo and Zenphoto have decided to merge projects. The reason is the ever growing competition with the big CMS like Wordpress (although their gallery functions are nowhere near those of Piwigo and Zenphoto), social networks or online photo communities like flickr or Picasa.
We know this comes as a big surprise to you our users. But there is no need to fear! Piwigo and Zenphoto share the same strong open source spirit. The teams also had a friendly connection by recommending each other for years!
Neither of the projects will be abandoned and no features will be lost. On the contrary the projects will be merged so you will get the best of both worlds so to speak. It will be a new project called "Zenwigo" with a complete new user interface and full backward compatibility via convenient importers to older Piwigo and Zenphoto installations.
We hope to manage all this by the end of this year. As you can imagine it will require quite some rewrite of code which already started in secret last year. For the time being both project sites will stay active until the transition is complete. But then you all will get the best media focussed CMS the net ever has seen.
An advanced setting for protection of original photos was added, to make Piwigo an even safer place for your photos. Piwigo becomes more social with email and website fields for user comments. The external authentication with plugin oAuth let your visitors connect with their Facebook, Google, OpenID or Wordpress.com account (and many others). The new web API explorer will help developers to know how to communicate remotely with Piwigo.
In the Batch Manager, you can filter photos on dimensions (width, height and ratio)
