I have been a long time user of Gallery Project. I migrated from jAlbum in mid 2003 and migrated through G1 up to G2 with integration into WordPress.
Six years ago I made a note to really investigate the changes from Gallery 2 to Gallery 3 – I did the homework; but the change didn’t make sense for many reasons.
Last year I was saddened to see that the Gallery Project had gone into hibernation. Always sad to see an open source and community led project get shuttered.
Less photos these days; we tend to share a limited number via Facebook – but still the dilemma – what to do with the hundreds of thousands of old photos and rapidly rotting code.
