History of PictureGo!

The development of PictureGo! started in 1999. After I had bought my first digital camera, I wrote a program to watch my pictures in a slide show. Being an enthusiastic programmer, I continued to develop the program and version 8.2 is the thirtyninth release, so far....

Version 6.3 - December 2010

It is Christmas now, time to do some looking back. On December 10, version 6.3 was released. It sure sounds incredible to me but this is really the 25th version of PictureGo! Though I myself pretty much declared PictureGo! to be terminally ill sometime ago, the program is still alive and kicking.

Version 6.3 comes with nice new features. The nicest one in my belief is creating Windows 7 Desktop themes. And a thing I never believed of introducing is image transitions. Very modest at first since Fade out is the only available transition but there a many more to follow. I won't make it too exotic, after all, it is the picture that deserves the attention, not so much the transition.

Highlight of December: the number of 15.000 users was reached! In earlier release notes I mentioned the South-American revolution. The new number 1 country of PictureGo! users turned out to be Uruguay. After installing a new database of IP-adresses, it turned out that it was actually Brazil where the majority of new users came from. And it is kind of sad to see that Uruguay in the current statistics went back to one single user:)

In between, version 6.4 is on its way!

A wonderful 2011 to you and until the next version!
