ThumbView - Expansive Thumbnail support! / News: Recent posts

Happy Birthday ThumbView!

Today, December 2nd, is exactly 1 year after ThumbView's first public release! I am so proud on how it has spread!

To commemorate I have updated the website. The whole site is now XHTML 1.1 and CSS 2.0 valid. Also, it uses a RSS feed from SourceForge to enable this news system (integrated with Magpie,\).

It's (still) alive!

Hello and welcome to ThumbView's first news post! These might not be very frequent because, well... this ain't a newspaper =P

First of I'm incredibly happy that donations have started dropping in! We're already halfway to get a account so that ThumbView gets a bit more spotlight.

Second, ThumbView has been chosen to appear in the German computer magazine COMPUTERBILD. Which apperently is the largest computer magazine in Europe with its 4 million readers! *gasp*
