Gallery Project

Gallery or Menalto Gallery is an open source project enabling management and publication of digital photographs and other media through a PHP-enabled web server. Photo manipulation includes automatic thumbnails, resizing, rotation, and flipping, among other things. Albums can be organized hierarchically and individually controlled by administrators or privileged users.[2]

Gallery 3 is the current release of Gallery. It is a complete rewrite of Gallery 2 attempting to be small, intuitive, fast, and easily customizable. Gallery 3.0 was released on October 5, 2010.[3]

Gallery 2 was publicly released on September 13, 2005.[4] Gallery 2.3.1 was a minor release, primarily for supporting PHP 5.3 and was released on Dec 17, 2009.[5] Development of Gallery 2.x has ceased.

Gallery 1 was released in April 2001[6] and was developed for several years, the last release being 1.5.10 on November 21, 2008.[7]Development of further Gallery 1.x versions might continue in project Jallery,[8] a fork of Gallery 1.6, but does not seem to be under active development.

Gallery has also released a “Gallery Virtual Appliance“, which allows users to test the current versions of both Gallery 1 and Gallery 2.[9] in a VMWare installation.

Gallery participated in the Google Summer of Code in 2006,[10] 2007,[11] and 2008.[12] Gallery also participated in OpenUsability‘s Season of Usability in 2008[13] and 2009.[14]

In 2003, Gallery was SourceForge‘s October Project of the Month.[15]

Originally developed using CVS, Gallery switched to SourceForge‘s Subversion Service on April 27, 2006[16] and Gallery 3 has been developed entirely using Git on GitHub.[
