After much deliberation I’ve finally decided to move the development of the Flickr Screensaver over to the Codeplex web site. This means that if you’re really sad you can now see the source code for the screensaver.
Also, if you have any problems with it that’s the best place to post a bug report or feature request.
Currently, its the same version that downloadable from here, but once its a new version I’ll change the link on this web site to point to the Codeplex web site instead.
Flickr .Net Screensaver
The latest version of the Flickr.Net API library has been released. Its finally got full support for the Compact Framework in the source code (.Net Framework 2.0 SP 1 and later).
As usual, let me know (hopefully via the Codeplex web site) if you’ve got any problems.
FlickrNet API Library
I’ve finally got around to releasing a new version of my screensaver. It unfortunately doesn’t add much functionality, but it should get around the “threading” error, as well as fix a bug or two elsewhere.
[Download Flickr Screensaver 4.1 (420k)]
As usual, let me know if you have any problems.
Title says it all really, the Flickr.Net API Library has been used to produce a very nice styling and templating demo for the Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF). Its called ‘PhotoStore’.
Discovered a copy of my Flickr.Net beginners article in
spanish portuguese on the Brasil microsoft web site today. How cool is that.

Edit: OK, so Brazilians speak portuguese, but it is available in Spanish as well here.

Thanks to Nick (heatxsink) the Flickr.Net source code in now included in the latest Mono source code. That means anyone using the latest version of mono will be able to use the Flickr.Net library to interogate Flickr.
Wow, its a bit like being included in the .Net Framework – feels weird.
In Mono its known as flickr-sharp.

I’ve not got myself a copy yet, but its on order. Technical editors don’t seem to get free ones :)
And David Wilkinson is every technical editors dream writer – almost all of his code examples worked first go and he had a very thorough understanding of what he was trying to do, so my thanks go to him. Dave’s Flickr Photos.

OK, I’ve written a Flickr Uploader using the .Net Compact Framework 2.0 (SP1).
I don’t actually have a pocket PC or similar device so if you have any success, or problems then let me know.
You can download the redistributable for the CF here.
Copy the Cab file to your mobile device and then double click it in the File Explorer.

I’ve created a quick example Flickr.Net web site in Visual Studio 2005, for both VB.Net and C#.
There is a simple page that performs authentication, and stores the resulting authentication details in the session variables.
There is also a very simple photo album, showing the latest 20 photos from your photo stream.
The sample has been uploaded the the ‘Examples” page of the FlickrNet Wiki on CodePlex.
Any questions then let me know.

I’ve done a batch of bug fixes and updates to the FlickrNet API library, including Photos.DateAdded which tells you when a photo was added to a group, and the PhotosRecentlyUpdated method which details your recently updated photos.
Download from Codeplex
I’ll roll up a release in a week or so if there are no more changes before then.
