A couple of years ago I went for Coppermine but I never really liked it, so I was recently looking for something fresh. I was pointed to zenphoto, which I immediately found much better. Still, while coding my custom theme, I encountered a number of limitations or bugs that I wanted to fix. Which I did: I proposed a number of patches that were included. Mainly, I'm responsible in this release for ditching prototype in favor of jQuery, and for introducing a new type of plugin API function: add_filter(), apply_filter(), does this ring a bell to anyone here?
Zenphoto is still a bit messy in my opinion from a coder's perspective, but on the surface it's simple, unbloated, very usable, a snap to theme and to customize. I really like it :)
