Piwigo 2.3.0RC1, are you ready to test?

Hello to all beta-testers,

As planned in our roadmap for Piwigo 2.3, now comes the time for release candidates with the first of them: Piwigo 2.3.0RC1. This version is for test only, don't install it on your live website.

2) Screenshots

The upload form was seriously improved. Among visible improvements, you will find a simpler album selector, maximum filesize and dimensions displayed before you select some photos, a selection button translated in all languages, a progress bar for the whole upload and last but not least, the photos are displayed as soon as they are uploaded, progressively.

The tooltip on thumbnail has been fully redesigned, just like the alternate text ("alt" html attribute), in order to improve search engine optimization and to provide more useful information to your visitors.

The gallery title can be used automatically in the page banner. Easy and convenient.

The "lost password" feature has been rewritten from scratch. The new feature let administrators reset their password without touching directly to the database.

You can merge tags... without losing associations with photos.

Apply permissions on sub-albums.

Have a nice time while discovering Piwigo 2.3 new features!
