What's New in version 5.1:

Features and Changes:

  • 13405: Add support for Ultra HD Wallpapers
  • FEATURE: You can now add RSS feeds from Ultra HD Wallpapers to JBS. Give it a try, there are loads of superb photos to choose from!
  • 13685: Update the Unsplash icon to use the new one
  • CHANGED: JBS now uses the newly redesigned Unsplash icon. Yay!
  • 13335: Update Unsplash to remove the deprecated API methods
  • CHANGED: Removed the deprecated Unsplash API endpoints which includes the curated options unfortunately.
  • 13704: Change Google Photos integration to use a separate browser for authentication
  • CHANGED: If you used device two factor authentication (rather than a code) then it wouldn't work when authenticating JBS with Google Photos. Now that authentication is done via a separate browser window this problem will be resolved.

Bug Fixes:

  • 13743: Tumblr feeds are broken again in the European Union
  • FIXED: Don't panic, Tumblr feeds in the EU are working again – yay!
  • 13738: SmugMug isn't choosing from all photos in an album
  • FIXED: JBS was only getting a maximum of 200 photos from any SmugMug album and now chooses from all photos in an album.
  • 13692: Artstation feeds often include emojis when it shouldn't
  • FIXED: Now JBS will skip smilies when contained within an Artstation feed.
  • 13673: When JBS hits the Google Photos rate limit it was trying again and so wasting an API call
  • FIXED: If JBS hit the Google Photos rate limit then it would do the equivalent of a hissy fit and make one more petulant call to Google's API. Now it'll just quieten down like a good boy.

What's New in version 4.17:

Features and Changes:

  • 13307: Add OneDrive (personal) support
  • FEATURE: You can now use your OneDrive cloud storage folders as a photo source for JBS. Yay!
  • 13282: Add Unsplash integration
  • FEATURE: You can now choose photos from the awesome photography site Unsplash. You can either choose from curated photos, the newest, most popular or specific user's photos as well as from search queries. One thing's for sure – you'll always get amazing photos!
  • 13273: Add support for artstation feeds
  • FEATURE: The RSS feed functionality now supports ArtStation feeds.
  • 13050: Add the option to filter out adult photos from Pixabay
  • FEATURE: You can now choose to filter out adult photos from Pixabay searches. Handy in an office environment!
  • 13326: Add the option to put the picture information in any corner of the screen
  • FEATURE: You can now choose which corner of the screen to show the picture information on. No more having it stuck at the top-right all the time! Of course you can switch it off entirely from ‘More Settings'.
  • 13281: Add a Swedish translation
  • FEATURE: JBS is now available in Swedish. Thanks Sopor! ??
  • 13297: The Facebook API no longer allows non-business apps like JBS to query for users photos
  • CHANGED: Facebook now require apps that request photo access to be a verified business and since I'm just a guy called John Conners I'm not that. So I've had to remove Facebook from JBS. Sorry about that!
  • 13285: Remove 500px as they're switching the API off
  • CHANGED: Unfortunately 500px have switched off their API so apps like JBS are no longer able to use them as a photo source. It was fun while it lasted.
  • 13304: Update the SmugMug API to the latest version
  • CHANGED: SmugMug is about to switch off the old API JBS uses so I've updated the integration to use the latest version. Unfortunately for the time being that means JBS doesn't support site or album passwords. Next, instead of login details for each photo set you'll need to authenticate JBS with SmugMug once and then be able to choose from your photos or any other user's public photos and albums. Just open a SmugMug set or click the the ‘Authorise' on the settings dialog, then SmugMug to continue.

Bug Fixes:

  • 13208: Divide by zero error when using a large collage size
  • FIXED: Corrected a photo collage “divide by zero” error when using large collage sizes on a small screen.
  • 13300: The folder switcher applies orientation checking to all photos (so montage pictures) which it shouldn't do
  • FIXED: If you chose local pictures, a montage mode like postcard pile and opted to only show landscape pictures for full screen photos JBS would filter portraits out of the montage. This was not the intended behaviour was at odds with other sources. Now it behaves like the rest to be consistent!
  • 13247: Pixabay URLs return a 404 page
  • FIXED: When you went to view a Pixabay photo you'd get a 404 error page. Now you'll go to the actual photo page.
  • 12986: Attempting to send a picture via email results in an error
  • FIXED: This problem has now been fixed. Email away!
