This update is all about polishing and fixing minor deficiencies. Mejiro now properly handles the Next and Previous navigation links: the links are automatically disabled when the first or the last photo is reached. The same applies to the Map link: if the photo contains no geographical coordinates, the Map link is disabled.
If you look closely, you’ll notice that the way the key photographic values are displayed has been slightly tweaked. More importantly, though, the new version improves handling of empty values.
As always, the latest version of Mejiro is available for download from the project’s GitHub page, and you can view a Mejiro demo at dmpop.dhcp.io/mejiro.
