This is big news. My Sourceforge alert just told me that Gallery 2.0 is released. No more beta or release candidate, we're talking about stable official release (you know, the one that comes just before a load of bugfixes and "oops we forgot this" patches :)
G2 is something I've been really waiting for. I'm currently using Coppermine for my personal gallery and never felt completely satisfied about it. Out of the box and as is, Coppermine is a really decent product. But when it comes to tweaking its core code, there begins a nightmare of obfuscated PHP code and hard-coded nested HTML tables. Yuck.
Before giving G2 a serious try, I'll start by reading this detailed comparison of G1 vs G2. Then I'll download it, check how clean code looks like and if it looks hackable. Then I'll try to break stuff :)
