Toucan Version History
2.0.8 April 2013
- Fixed crash with files that cannot be opened.
2.0.7 March 2013
- Bugfix, the hotfolder feature was broken since 2.0.5
2.0.6 March 2013
- Support for orientation was broken in the Intel version of 2.0.5, it should work in 2.0.6
2.0.5 February 2013
- Bug fixes for the hotfolder. Sometimes updates would stop.
- Support for orientation, images straight from the camera would sometimes be displayed in the wrong orientation. Now the orientation is checked and the image rotated before display. This needs further improvement, it is now far to slow, because the whole image is rotated in memory.
- Split the app into two versions. One for Mac OS 10.7 and newer and a version for 10.5 and newer that supports PowerPC Macs. The reason is to better support Mountain Lion.
2.0.4 October 2012
- Sort order preference added. Sort by modification date or filename. When sorting
by filename, numbers are sorted in numerical order. For example Picture10 will come
- New hot-folder option. Now you can choose between showing new images as soon as possible or
just add them to the slideshow in sorted order.
- Some bug fixes.
2.0.3 July 2012
- This version adds a few basic transition effects. Choose an effect from the preferences window.
- It is now also possible to open Toucan with an empty folder. This will then be a hot folder and Toucan will wait until an image is added.
2.0.2 May 28, 2012
Toucan 2.0 is a completely new application. No code from Toucan 1.5 was
useable for a modern Mac OS X application.
Work on Toucan 2.0 started a long time ago, but progress stalled until some loyal Toucan users found that it did not work on Lion. Development was resumed and the result is Toucan 2.0.2.
Not all the features of Toucan 1.5 made it to Toucan 2, but development will continue.
The goal was to have a usable Lion compatible version as soon as possible.
1.5 and earlier
These versions where made a long time ago, when Mac OS X was still new and many Mac users where
still using Mac OS 9 or earlier.
Toucan 1.5 is still available and works on Mac OS 9 and Mac OS X up to 1.6 Snow Leopard. It is a PowerPC application, thus its performance is not optimal on new Macs with Intel processors.
