    The 'current' version of MovPic that is available to download contains a bunch of issues.

    This has all been fixed, but no new official version has been released yet.

    You can manually build your own installer from SVN/source to fix it yourself, or wait for v1.6.x to be released (as to when, your guess is as good as mine).

    There is only one person that can push out a new release and sometimes real-life just takes over and doesn't allow much time to spend on open sourced projects. As to why no co-owners are assigned to handle that task, that's another good question. But perhaps they are testing some big new feature/fix that requires extra time. It really sucks when, the existing release contains problems that cause major problems, and the fixes are already in place, but at least with open source you have the ability to take matters into your own hands if you can not wait.

    And there is a small chance that you did run into a new bug, but considering official download is v1.5.1.1487 and current revision is at r1521, that means 34 issues have been dealt with. The full changelog can be found at: and perhaps you can locate your exact problem as being fixed already in a revision inbetween.

    If you do not know how to compile from SVN, but you are a more technical adapt user then average, then you can grab v1.5.2.1519 from IMDb+ download area. This is a test build designed for IMDb+ users to test the new 'collections' and 'release_date' attributes, and if you do use that one, be sure to never report bugs for MovPic as it is not an official release.
