ExifTagger v0.20 and feedback

ExifTagger v0.20 is out… a day after 0.1 was out. The quick turn around was due to me not really testing the SHAREINST code for the glade file. In short, the app didn’t work from tarball, though it would from rpm. I had the bug reported to me about 8 hours after release by someone random on the internet, and I fixed it about 8 hours later. Not bad user support, even if I do say so myself.

ExifTagger is the first time I’ve pushed purely personal code to freshmeat that was:

  1. A gui app
  2. Had a screen shot

The fact that I’ve been contacted by a couple of people already this week (showing how alpha the software really is) gives me pause. It’s fun to work on software that other people find useful. The odds of joe random user popping their head up is more likely if it has a fun screen shot and a gui. So, I think from here on out my personal projects will all have guis and screenshots. 🙂 Given that I’ve finally wrapped my head around libglade, that should be that hard.

Also, the fact that my app has a really cool picture of Grinnell Glacier on it just makes me happy. 🙂
