The major change is that the "new" OAuth-based authentication is used. This makes our Python FlickrAPI library a lot more future-proof.
Thanks to Jim Easterbrook, Thai Nguyen, Nick Loadholtes and Bengt for their contributions.
My favourite password management tool, pwsafe, is getting old. It's no longer part of Ubuntu and I've had to compile it myself for quite a while now. It's also not supported on Android, and shows other signs of aging. So, I moved to KeePass. Exporting my database to CSV was simple, and to make the job of importing it correctly into KeePass even easier, I wrote a simple Python script.
The changes are:
Changed default API URL to use HTTPS (Joseph Hui).
PEP 8 compliance (Luar Roji).
Replaced Distribute with Setuptools.
In the mean time, we have made more progress on the upcoming version 2.0. We can always use more bug testers, bug fixers and documentation writers; check out https://bitbucket.org/sybren/flickrapi/ to get involved!
Blender lets you script more or less everything. You can have your code inside Blender (and the .blend file) itself, but I prefer to store it outside the .blend file. This makes it easier to handle changes, and allows you to use any editor you want. The downside is that reloading your code becomes a bit of a hassle. This is a little snippet I wrote to reload my code in Blender with the click of a button.
