Need Gallery help? Try the new community support forum: https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/gallery3/info
The Gallery team has decided to take a step back from actively maintaining this project. Truth be told, most of the core team got busy with their lives over the past few years and we haven't had the time to really actively maintain the project in a long time. The forums have continued to be lively and helpful and there is still plenty of good conversation there - but no new code has been written in the past 6 months and that's not likely to change.
So after over 14 years, 3 major revisions of the project, many tens of releases, hundreds of contributors, tens of thousands of lines of code, almost a hundred thousand forum topics and almost four hundred thousand comments, it's time for us to shutter up shop.
Why not just leave the site up and operational? Unfortunately - it takes time to actively maintain and police our site. The Gallery website is constantly under attack by spammers and our servers require maintenance. We've been doing that for years, but it's time to call it quits.
So what's next? Sometime soon we'll make the website read only. All the forum posts and topics will still be there, but we'll stop letting people log in and add new content. This will greatly prevent the spread of spam through the site while still allowing search engines to find useful content. Then we'll put the whole site into a very low-overhead maintenance mode until we run out of money to keep it up. Then we'll shut the site down.
While the site is hibernating, some systems will continue to work. You'll be able to download translations for Gallery 3, for example. But at some point we'll stop accepting translation uploads. And when we run out of money, translations will go away. Sorry about that.
It's been a great ride. I'm glad that you could join us with it. But now it's time to move on.
PS: If you're interested in taking over the project - email me and we can talk. You need to be serious about it though because I'm not handing this over to somebody who just wants to use it for SEO purposes. My email address is easy to find. Also, I won't be reading private messages.

Gallery 3.0.9 is now available! We are still hard at work on 3.1, but in the meantime a few more minor security issues needed to be resolved. We've fixed them and recommend that you upgrade to 3.0.9 ASAP. Thanks to Malte Batram and Dhaval Chauhan for their responsible disclosure. We will be rewarding them cash bounties as part of our Security Bounty Program.

We need you! (Or maybe someone you know.) Gallery 3 is not available in many major Linux distributions via their package managers. We think it should be, but we don't have the time or know-how to make it happen. If you know a thing or two about Linux package management and have been itching to contribute to Gallery, now is your chance:
If there is a way that you are not able to get Gallery where you would like to, or if you can help out with any of the above, please let us know here or hop on the gallery-devl e-mail list and let's make it happen!

There's been discussion among team members about trying to clarify the Gallery Project's identity. To those ends, the Project's web sites, gallery.menalto.com and codex.gallery2.org, have moved to www.galleryproject.org and codex.galleryproject.org.

As part of their support of the open source community, InMotion Hosting, a professional web hosting service provider, rolled up their sleeves and worked with the Gallery team to help with some outstanding issues with Gallery 3.
InMotion developers learned the Gallery environment and worked on five different bug fixes, getting the new code to us via GitHub pull requests. They fixed things like a PHP 5.3.13 incompatibility, a parallel upload timeout problem and more. Their fixes will all be included in the next release of Gallery 3. In addition to the development work, InMotion has also provided monetary support for the Gallery project, which we appreciate!
Now that they’ve got the hang of it, InMotion is continuing its support of Gallery via ongoing technical contributions. Maybe you know of someone else who would like to contribute?

After several extensive internal and external security audits which discovered 22 distinct vulnerabilities, we are releasing Gallery 3.0.4 as a security release. All of the issues require that someone with malicious intent either have an account with edit permissions, or trick a user with edit permissions into clicking on a malicious link. In most cases, this can only lead to a possible XSS vulnerability, but in several instances it allows arbitrary PHP code execution.
We thank the following individuals for reporting these issues: Chalk, Mateusz Goik, James 'albino' Kettle, Emanuel Bronshtein, and Sergey Markov. Due to their efforts, they will each be receiving bounties of $1000 for their help in making Gallery more secure. Read our Bounties page for details and how to submit any security issues you find.
We strongly recommend that all users of Gallery 3 upgrade as soon as possible.

It isn't open source and it does cost $4, but it looks like a nice way to work with Gallery 3 from your Apple devices. Read on for features and requirements.
