1.0.0-beta.4 is ready!

Great! Nice work. Love the frequent releases. Don’t burn yourself out :wink:

Assuming github will be updated soon with beta 4

When will it be pushed out to the app “Check for updates” utility? Should it be there by now? I’m on beta3 and it says I have the latest version. (Super excited about this update!)

I mentioned this on Discord, but I’m embarrassed to admit I published this topic as “unlisted,” thinking “unlisted” meant “draft”.

beta.4 needs more tests and then I have to fight the Continuous Integration Monsters to get all the lights back to green, and then I’ll release.

Sorry for the pre-emptive post!

Haha, no problem! I don’t have the time to be on Discord, otherwise I would’ve caught that. I figured something was up. Thanks!

1.0.0-beta.4 (PhotoStructure for desktops) is installed and working for me on Windows 10 (10.0.19043) on x64.

At first it said I was running the lite version after the upgrade. I requested a verification code, but it still said I was running lite version. I restarted photostructure and now it’s working great.

I like the new “hover over photos to see when they were taken” feature. Great job!

Sorry about that licensing hiccup: if you still have debug or info logging enabled, can you send me your logs?

Also, just saw that the file drop-down in the info panel isn’t rendering, so I’ll get that fixed and push beta.5 shortly.

I’m excited for you that 1.0.0 is imminent!

in 1.0.0-beta.4, when I display the info panel for an asset (screenshot 01) and click on the three-dots button for an asset, the three-dots turns into an “x” and I don’t get the menu to have any options like “download asset” (screenshot 02).

Oh crap, I see that. I’ll get that fixed asap.

OK, just released beta.5 with that bug fixed.

Note that I’ll be offline for the next several days.

Update: the update doesn’t have seem to have fixed the bug (I’d reproduced it on my own library running node, changed the dropdown slot rendering, rebuilt, and it worked, honest, so… there’s something else going on here). I’ll fix this next week.

I was running Windows 10 Desktop 1.0.0-beta 3. I used the"Check for updates" in the right click of the system tray icon. This said there was an update available which I accepted. It seemed to download and PhotoStructure closed but the program was not automatically updated and started.

I could not easily find the beta 4 version. I then finally downloaded the program from PhotoStructure | Install PhotoStructure which I guessed from an earlier “alpha” bookmark. (BTW I did find another copy of the beta 4 on my computer downloaded from the "check for upgrades”)

When I ran the beta 4 install program, everything went to plan and no obvious re-sync/rebuild was undertaken.

I believe it the install upgrade for the Windows Desktop should install and then run PhotoStructure.

Upgraded to beta5 (sorry, posted to beta.4 thread by mistake). Initial (re)scan after startup is still going on, but i see that logs have a rather high number of these errors, all alike:

I trust that it is “nonFatal” - UI is definitely not complainint about anything. This is just something I havent seen before

Also spotted this (sorry, this is also beta.5, not beta.4 - i missed the right place to post this):

I had many issues getting PS for Docker Compose to work reliably - when creating the initial library or doing upgrades it would miss running one or other migration sql script, causing the database to have missing tables or foreign keys and such. Tried a number of times and it was inconsistent, like the sqlite database didn’t like being mapped through to the underlying host disk.

Not saying this is the cause of that problem necessarily but just my experience.

Gave up on Docker and went to Node, no problems like that since.

At least on linux, there is really no IO mapping, right? Containerized process runs directly on the host (under restricted capabilities), so there is really not that much real difference between running a container and running Node version.

I’m afraid I broke the docker image for a bunch of functionality due to a mistake I made that caused libc tools to get cooked into a musl image. I’ll be back at my desk tomorrow and fix this issue first this in the morning.

Sorry to you both (and anytime else) for the bother!

This has been fixed in beta.6

@wooskey is this still an issue for you with beta.9?

(My personal library that had this issue was fixed with beta.8, but I didn’t want to assume we were suffering from the same issue)

Nope! In beta.9, I get the correct response when I click on the three-dots button for an asset: I get the menu with download options.
