DMP Photo Booth: Release Candidate 1
It’s been a long time coming, but the day is almost here: the day DMP Photo Booth is officially released.
Following last week’s successful stress test, I’ve been doing some last-minute touch-up work. I’ve been preparing my laptop for the big day, and finding and squashing some bugs.
Now things are coming along, and I feel the time has come to proceed to RC1. This means that barring any major new show stoppers, DMP Photo Booth will proceed to version 1.0 on June 22.
You can find the latest release here. On that page you’ll find the latest source for DMP Photo Booth and the reference modules, as well as a pre-compiled version for Debian/AMD64. Just extract the tarball into a folder and double-click the executable and you’re off! It comes pre-configured with sane defaults.
Moving forward, I plan to work on a “GTK Trigger Module”. This will just show a window with a button you can click to trigger the photo session. I understand that not everybody feels like constructing an Arduino thingamabober, and that this is surely the only thing preventing DMP Photo Booth from going viral on a global scale. Hopefully this is done by 1.0, but if not it will likely make it into a version 1.0.1, to be released shortly after 1.0.
