Pho 0.9.8 released

I decided to give myself a birthday present and release version 0.9.8 of Pho, my image viewer, at long last.

I've been using it essentially unchanged for many months now, occasionally tweaking things or fixing minor bugs ... but I haven't run into any bugs in quite a while, and think I've fixed all the pending ones. Been meaning to make a release for a long time, but somehow I keep getting sidetracked and forgetting about it.

This should rationalize the version number again ... the official releases have been 0.9.7-preN forever, but there was an unofficial 0.9.7 and even a 0.9.8 that snuck in along with some patches I got from David Gardner. It's been confusing. So now it's officially 0.9.8, and any figure versions will start with 0.9.9, and we might even see a 1.0 one of these days. (I suppose it's time -- Pho is ten years old!)

So here it is: Pho 0.9.8. I think it's working well. If you're already a Pho user, or if you want a lightweight image viewer that's also good at triaging and annotating large batches of images, you might want to take a look.
