Release Notes

  • Image crop was refactored to be a field instance instead of widget for imagefield.
  • Crop dimensions are stored in the field table instead of variable.
  • Node revisions support added.
  • Bug with file status fixed. Now cropped files are marked as permanent.
  • Automatic gif images converting.
  • Image path flush added after image re-crop
  • Relational ratio options on the field settings form was added.
  • hook_imagefield_crop_image_crop_updated hook was added, which notifies other modules when re-cropping was occurred, can be useful for clearing cache.

IMPORTANT: No upgrade path from version 7.x.-1.0

Features that could be added into next releases

  • Support for filefield_path module.
  • Multiple presets for one field. Very often we need to have different image formats for some site areas and most of the time theme(image_style) adjust image not very well. So I think it would be great to an ability to configure few presets like 4:3 and 16:9 and have something like tabs on the widget form, so that you can switch between them and crop different areas.
