Releases

nomacs 2.4.0

the new 2.4.0 release is a milestone in our development. First, it will be the last feature release which mainly supports Qt 4 (again the numbers align perfectly: 2.4). Second, it is probably the hugest feature release ever. The most important features include tabs, an all-in-wonder batch processing, and an improved thumbnail preview. Good news for all Windows XP and Vista users (who should definitely update their system : ), we compiled nomacs a last time for these systems. Here is the full changelog:

  • Batch processing (you can try it by clicking Tools > Batch Processing)
  • Image tabs (open multiple images within different tabs)
  • Thumbnail preview improved (copy/paste delete/rename is now supported)
  • Zoom panel improved (you can now chose a specific zoom level)
  • Olympus RAW added
  • Convert to grayscale added (thanks to shreelock)
  • Faster directory loading (especially if you have many images in a folder)
  • Gesture improvements
  • Saving of images from archives (e.g. zip, docx) is now supported
  • File sorting improved (Unix-based systems only)
  • Stability improvements

nomacs 2.2

you know we like numbers… so we release nomacs 2.2 on 11.11. This version fixes a few issues you reported and adds cool features such as reading images from zip (docx, xlsx, pptx) archives, or a full metadata panel. The full changelog is:

  • Reading images from ZIP (+ Office Documents e.g. docx, xlsx, pptx)
  • Metadata panel (displays all metadata of an image)
  • Thumbnail panel layout (Vertical or Undock)
  • Notes (you can now take and display notes which are written to the image metadata)
  • Private mode which does not save any settings including recent files
  • Option which disables check for updates
  • Option which disables logging of recent files/folders
  • Additional RAW files added (including Pentax [PEF], Samsung [SRW], Hasselblad [3FR] and Sigma [X3F])
  • JPG2000 read/write fixed for large files (windows with setup only)
  • Resize dialog fixes
  • File order fixed for Linux/Unix
  • Segfault fixed if ‘fast thumbnail preview’ is checked
  • Saving images without extension (linux only) fixed

Fixes for 2.0

first of all we want to thank those users who provided feedback for the shiny new 2.0 version of nomacs. at the same time, the feedback kept us busy with fixing known issues. the 2.0.2 release fixes particularly these issues:

  • portable version always keeps settings (settings are not written to the registry anymore)
  • plugin download for nomacs portable
  • AppData is not written to home directory (sorry for that, you can delete this folder without any side effects)
  • layout fixes in recent folders/files
  • translation updates fixed
  • thumbnail saving fixed

nomacs 1.6.4

so the news are always the same on this page – again we have updated nomacs.
this version contains a few new features:

  • Auto Adjustment/Auto Normalization/Invert Image functions added
  • Flip (Horizontally/Vertically) functions added
  • Recursive Folder Scan
  • Fast(er) RAW loading with embedded thumbnail extraction
  • save for web dialog – that allows for easy resizing and saving
  • the window position is remembered even if the window was snapped previously
  • a Run button is added to the new Open With dialog – hence it is similar to the old one

we hope you enjoy this version — even more — than the old nomacs versions

Critical Bugfix

we have found a critical bug which – in some cases – prevents nomacs from starting correctly. If you experience this issue, we would recommend to update nomacs to version 1.6.3.┬áThe issue applies only to the Windows versions. Users of other OS can safely enjoy version 1.6.2. Sorry for any inconveniences caused.

For the Matlab users who do not enjoy the default image display behavior of Matlab: this script allows you to directly display images in nomacs.
