We are glad to announce the release of Solang 0.3.

Solang is a photo manager for GNOME and this release contains several
new features and improvements.

* A new logo and .desktop file.

* Context sensitive popup on right-clicking a photo in the browser

* Folder exporter to export selected photos to a folder.

* Improved editing abilities. A new GEGL based editing engine; and
  support for brightness, contrast, saturation and scaling. Of these
  only the first two operations are based on GEGL. The rest will be
  migrated as GEGL improves in the future.

* Introduced a histogram in the editor renderer and the property

* It is now possible to copy a set of applied operations from one
  photo and paste it onto others.

* New vertical toolbox for the editor renderer. The flip, rotate and
  scale operations are now placed in this toolbox, and their
  corresponding entries have been removed from the menu.

* Support for slideshows.

* The date, property and tag managers, and the search basket are
  hidden when using the editor renderer.

* The main horizontal toolbar style has been set to "icons only".

* Use a black background for the photo when in fullscreen mode and do
  not draw a frame it.

* New dependencies on BABL and GEGL.

We would like to thank Yasen Pramatarov and Andrea Zagli for contributing the
Bulgarian and Italian translations respectively; and Angella Inzinga for
creating a logo.

Here are the GPG detached signatures[*]:

[*] You can use the signature file to verify that the corresponding
file (without the .sig suffix) is intact. First, be sure to download
both the .sig file and the corresponding tarball. Then, run a command
like this:

 gpg --verify solang-0.3.tar.gz.sig

If that command fails because you don't have the required public key,
then download the project keyring from
and run this command to import it:

 gpg --import solang-keyring.gpg

and rerun the 'gpg --verify' command.

One reason that life is complex is that it has a real part and an
imaginary part.
