Flickr is upgrading their
API authentication mechanism to OAuth 1.0, and they’re removing the old Flickr Auth by July 31st this year.
It means that current version of Nautilus Flickr Uploader will stop working, so I’ve added
OAuth support (the code it’s in the
git repo, and I’d like to make a release tomorrow).
I’ll update the package for
Fedora 15 and 16 (if you’re using the repository, you don’t need to do anything at all), and any user of the previous
Fedora versions will need to upgrade from source code.
OAuth code required changing some strings, so most of the translations are now incomplete:
- ar, de, fr, gl, gu, it, pl, pt, ru and uk need at least the new strings. It’s just a couple, so it shouldn’t take long for a native speaker.
- ca needs some love, although the important stuff is there. I translated most of the file, but I must admit my Catalan is not what it used to be :(. My partner will help me with this one, so it’ll be 100% complete this weekend.
- en and es are 100% complete!
Finally I stopped using Transifex. It doesn’t work for me anymore and I can’t make it work (is git support gone?), so I think is better to stop using it completely to avoid people sending translations for outdated files.
The bad thing of not using
Transifex is that helping with the translations is not as friendly as it used to be. If you’re a
GitHub user… you know what to do, but if you don’t know what I’m talking about but still want to help… just download the
.po file you want to translate (click on the language file and then “Save As” in the raw link), fill the gaps and send it to me by mail. Thanks!
I want to release 0.11 as soon as possible, but I can push a minor release later with some extra translations.

OAuth user interface looks like, you can check this video: Nautilus Flickr Uploader and OAuth.
