The Gallery Project 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 2.0 was publicly released on September 13, 2005.
In addition to Gallery 2.x, Gallery 3.x continues to be developed where new features are added; the first beta was released on 5 June, 2009 and fully supports upgrades to future releases. The development of Gallery 1.x is stopped, the last released version being 1.5.7 (August 16, 2007). Development of further Gallery 1.x versions continues in project Jallery , a fork of Gallery 1.6.
