Release 8.0 [April 17, 2018]

Summary

Version 8 of DBGallery has been a while in the works and focuses primarily on PlusWeb updates. That is, they are in the web side of the system. The newest PlusWeb has a much improved look, allows editing of basic data directly from a web browser rather than needing the desktop version (if permissions are provided to that user), greatly improved video support, and a fabulously easy and simple means of sharing images. For a live view of the latest PlusWeb, visit beta.dbgallery.com (Uid: DAdmin, Pw: dbg), see an overview.

PlusWeb Updates

  1. Data Edit
    • Edit basic data directly from the browser.
    • Open this new ability to only those who you trust with manipulating data.

  2. Share Images via Public Link
    • An exceptionally easy means of sharing 1 or a group of images, videos and PDFs.
    • Exceptionally easy to use: just select the images, press the share button, and send the link to those to view the images.
    • Only the images select can be viewed by those with the link.
    • Securely share images to the public without the need to login. While access to your image collection via the web requires a login, those shared this way does not require that step. Of course, only those with this link can see those images, and only those images.
