After some time diving through bugzilla I now want to present my
proposal for a summer project with the goal of improving shotwells
This would be mostly about implementing the following feature requests:
• http://trac.yorba.org/ticket/1081 slideshow transitions
• http://trac.yorba.org/ticket/1592 Show Title
• http://trac.yorba.org/ticket/1557 music in slideshows
My idea and proposal is to use clutter  as the underlying technology.
clutter is a glib based 3d-scenegraph which makes it really easy to
develop visually pleasing and high-performance user-interfaces.
Creating slideshow transitions with clutter is much easier than doing it
with cairo, so I prefer to use it.
Furthermore a clutter version of the slideshow would be easy expendable,
for example it could be possible to add video capabilities to the
I would be really happy to get feedback on my proposal.
with kind regards,
