XnView 1.74 Release Candidate 1 (Windows)

Post by xnview »


Normal users should use the current Final version of XnView, which is version 1.70.4. Please see post XnView 1.70.4 for details.

A Release candidate (RC) is a mainly stable version, which is provided to a larger number of people for testing. If the release candidate has few or no serious bugs, it will become the new final release, which will be announced in a new, separate topic in this newsgroup. Typically, the release candidate comes as executable file, only, and has no setup.
If you want to use the latest version and/or have fun testing an application which still might have bugs, the release candidate is the right thing.

At the moment, XnView v1.74 RC1 is available here : http://www.xnview.com/beta/XnView-RC1.zip

If you find bugs, please contact me.

Congratulations and thank you, Pierre, for this new version!

Think the 1.74 has really some nice features, I really like the "EXIF auto orientation".

Sure enough I'll have a close look at it...
