It's great that 0.8 is out at last. By the way, 0.8 also supports
publishing to two new photo hosting services. You can upload photos to
Yandex.Fotki (a popular Russian photo site) or to any site running the free
Piwigo software (see http://piwigo.org).
I'd like to thank the hard-working Yorba team plus the following external
contributors who made especially significant contributions to this release:
Jani Monoses wrote the code to upload videos to YouTube, Flickr, Facebook,
Maxim Kartashev implemented the feature that lets you set a background
slideshow from a set of photos.
Evgeniy Polyakov implemented Yandex publishing.
Guillaume Viguier-Just implemented Piwigo publishing.
Thanks again to these contributors and to everyone else who sent us bug
reports and patches for this release!
