Tasks on WebMagick's todo list
==============================

NOTE: My inspiration for actively developing WebMagick has decreased
significantly in the past year.  My efforts will likely be constrained
to bug-fixes.  However, if you would like to develop some of these
enhancements, I am interested in incorporating them in WebMagick.  If
you provide code to support a new feature, please provide
documentation updates as well.

Short Term:

o Support using the image's comment to label the image thumbnail and
  page.

o Check for a user-specified index file name (and use it)
  in the parent directory.  Currently uses the hard-coded
  name "index.html".

o Add the ability to set the pointsize of the label font.

o Update the .imgindex format so that seperate thumbnail and HTML
  text image titles are supported.  Long titles work well with HTML
  but have difficulties when applied to thumbnails.

o Support gzipped image files (probably only works with Unix browsers).

o Add info about all the cache files to the status file
o Always generate cache files for images greater than the cache size
o Make xv compatability an option that creates another set of thumbnails
  in the .xvpics directory so that web-compatable thumbnails are always    
  available.
o Add support for displaying a table grid of thumbnails rather than a montage
o Provide support under JavaScript for selecting different framing/layouts.

  o Don't change directories (framesets) if there are no
    subdirectories in the target directory.  This can
    support more efficient directory navigation for cases
    where there are a number of branch-end subdirectories.

  o Add a table mode which skips the montage and displays
    reduced thumbnails in an HTML table instead.

  o Provide for selecting the desired PERL interpreter via
    a configure option.
    
  o Support command line options to the configure script
    to avoid interactive configuration.
    
  o Support capability to read label text from image
    comment (if available).  Since most current comments
    are garbage, this would be yet another option.

Long Term:

  o Use a template to describe the HTML in the imagemap frame.

  o Use tables to emulate frames for browsers that support tables
    but not frames.

Wish List:

  o Provide summary statistics for an entire run, not just
    individual directories when in verbose mode. Difficult since
    WebMagick forks per directory and final statistics are printed by
    the parent.

  o Support indexing images which are located in a different
    directory tree from where WebMagick places its index files.
    This is to support CD-ROMs and other read-only situations.

  o Support quasi-image files which contain the URLs of
    images to include in the index.  This allows images to
    be located remotely and accessed via HTTP.
