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, http://magpierss.sourceforge.net/\).

No real work has been done to ThumbView itself, but I’m juggling several ideas on where to take it from now. But I did create three C# samples on how to use ThumbView with a .NET application to generate thumbnails!... read more

Donations goal reached for year 1!

For some time I've been asking for donations to buy a download.com account. Well, the sum has been collected!! I'll be creating a download.com ASAP!

OK got a rejection letter form Tucows, for both ThumbView and ThumbView Lite.

It seems that each app must have at least 25 points to be accepted. And I think they rate from 0 to 3, or 0 to 5, heck it could even be 0 to 10 (although not likely). How DARE they complain about my documentation when they're worse? :P

Both emails start like this:

program at this time.... read more

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 download.com 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*
