features, features, features

since there were (hardly any) no bugs in the last release we focused on new features and skipped again at least one bug fix release. the highly praised features include:

  • Multi Page TIFF support – with export & convert to multiple files option
  • Explorer Panel – for navigation
  • Crop Toolbar – additional options for cropping
  • Sort Images – by date modified/created
  • …and some small features requested by you

nomacs 1.0.2

about 40 years and 2 days after Martin Cooper (@MartyMobile) did the first mobile telephone call, the first bugfix-only nomacs is released. the bugfixes include:

  • Support for DNG format
  • Zoom/Pan is faster for Mac OS
  • EXIF data can be read for UTF-8 files (Windows only)
  • Open With starts custom executables again
  • Drag&Drop works directly after installing (no administrator privilegs)
  • dpi is now saved when changing it in the resize dialog
  • resize dialog does not crash for 40k x 30k images
  • translations updated & serbian translation added


for the automatic update routine will download the wrong version for Windows XP (this is already fixed in the 1.0.2 version – so it is the last time you need to manually install nomacs : )

nomacs 1

after one and a half year of development we now release the first (stable) nomacs 1. as usual, the windows binaries are already released this time either 32-bit or 64-bit (for those who view really huge images). Linux, Mac and OS/2 will follow soon.

new features include:

  • auto update
  • image manipulation tools
  • beautiful print preview
  • find & filter files
  • animated gifs (in the 21st century)
  • customizable GUI (colorize icons etc.)
  • advanced preferences dialog
  • window transparency features (frameless & locking = watermark for screenvideos)
  • set as wallpaper (windows)
  • anti aliasing (smooth image rendering)
  • improved de-mosaicing for RAW images
  • batch compute thumbnails
  • new translations: Spanish, Polish, Slovak and Azerbaijani (thanks to all translators)


Release Candidate 0.4

after one year of development, nomacs has become something that we call stable. so we released nomacs 0.4.0 Release Candidate today. For now it’s just windows – nomacs will be released in the next few days for all Operating Systems supported.

new features include:

  • Caching images – results in very short loading time
  • Thumb run-through – fast folder preview
  • Save widget state – widgets remember if they were displayed the last time
  • Additional supported formats – *.mrw (Minolta Raw) and *.rw2 (Panasonic Raw)
  • Improved  RAW display – colors are now more intensive
  • Go To – you can jump to whatever file you like using the new Go To dialog (CTRL+G)
  • Unattended installation parameters – improves batch installation for Windows

and as usual we have fixed some bugs:

  • RAW images for Linux – nomacs did not load raw images with libraw > 0.14.0
  • Save dialog – is now a native OS dialog -> speed up
  • *.bmp save – error message removed
  • Transparency & edit – handling of transparent images (e.g. crop) is corrected
  • … and a bunch of small fixes

Please note that the cacher is deactivated by default. We did so to save RAM for those who use nomacs in order to display every-day-images. Give it a try by changing the preferences: Settings > Resources > Cache Settings

nomacs 0.3.2

today we have released version 0.3.2 as you can see in the version number, this is just a minor update which fixes some bugs. additionally we were able to speed up the file indexing on windows (folders with more than 30 000 files are now indexed in 200 ms compared to 2.5 sec). two new features include a percent option in the resize dialog (for those who are lazy in mental arithmetics) and a chinese translation.
