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.
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.
Gallery 2 was publicly released on September 13, 2005. Gallery 2.3.1 was a minor release, primarily for supporting PHP 5.3 and was released on Dec 17, 2009. Development of Gallery 2.x has ceased.
Gallery 1 was released in April 2001 and was developed for several years, the last release being 1.5.10 on November 21, 2008. Development of further Gallery 1.x versions might continue in project Gallery, a fork of Gallery 1.6, but does not seem to be under active development.
Gallery 3 Requires:
In 2010, Gallery announced the use of some proprietary Adobe tools to build some components of Gallery 3 in Adobe Flash. Several users expressed great concern that proprietary software was being used in an open-source project and that Flash components were being included in an open-source package. A rebuttal to the controversy included a disclosure that Adobe Flash objects had previously been used for file uploading functionality in Gallery only seemed to further ignite the controversy.
Inactivity and revival
In June 2014 the developers of Gallery announced that they would not continue the development. According to the announcement most developers had lost interest in the project. The GPL license allows anyone to take up development and create a fork of Gallery based on the existing code. On 13 November 2019, the website had an announcement that the project would keep progressing with a fork.
Gallery the Revival is one attempt resurrect the Gallery 3 project.
