Projects / Gwenview


Gwenview is a fast and easy to use image viewer/browser for KDE. All common image formats are supported. Standard features include slideshow, full screen view, image thumbnails, drag'n'drop, image zoom, and full network transparency using the KIO framework. It also provides image and directory KParts components for use in applications such as Konqueror. Additional features are provided by the KIPI image framework.

          Release Notes: The delete dialog has been reworked to be more usable. It's now possible to define whether Gwenview should remember the last URL and the filter state when it is restarted.
