Auto-orientation, err...complete rewrite

Auto-orientation turned into a beast.  I had to really overhaul the gesture system to handle it and once I decided to make major changes to the infrastructue I decided to bring in a few upgrades I branched but never got fully functional.  By the end the whole thing snowballed into a practically brand new image model.  I think the overall system is much more responsive and much faster on top of it.  But I'm reluctant to release such a drastic change that is very vulnerable to device specs which I can never fully test for.  Instead I'm going to create a temporary "RawDroid Beta" app.  You'll be free to check out the new system and give me tons of feedback.

Beta released! Go here for details:

RawDroid Pro

I've released RawDroid Pro on the market:

RawDroid Pro

This is simply a license that will unlock features in the future.  Currently I haven't locked anything, so there's no need for the pro license.  But if you want to show support now and at a discounted price, please head over there to lock in that price.

I'll be on vacation in Japan for the next week, when I return I plan to implement histograms and auto-orientation by the end of the month.

Upcoming Features

This is current list of new features in the order I currently plan to implement them along with estimates:

  1. Import only.  See FAQ.


Want to help improve Rawdroid?  I could use assistance with translating the various english phrases into your localization.  I've added an interface to allow user translations.

It should be fairly simple, just add localization to your language in a column similar to english.  

If you see a series of symbols like '%1$s' please leave those in the translation, they're a wildcard.

Please email me with any questions.  Thanks!
