Bug Description

Stefan,

First, great little program. Thanks for taking the time to write it for us.
Second, consider adding support for .xml-style wallpapers. The usage file makes no mention of these types of wallpapers so I didn't attempt it (perhaps falsely assuming that it would crash the app). You are probably familiar with these, but if not - they allow a user to simulate animated wallpapers by providing a list of images and display durations in an .xml file. When the 'filename.xml' comes up in the wallpaper list, the list gets loaded and displayed in relatively rapid succession, like viewing an animated .gif.

Have you considered changing the filter option? The latest release should enable you to select the “supported” file types yourself.

DesktopNova doesn’t need to read the image file. As long as the backend supports the file type you can add any file extension you want.

The software should also not crash. If the backend can’t process the image, it will display an solid filled background instead of an wallpaper.

The status of the bug is set to invalid. If it doesn’t work for you or there is a malfunction feel free to change the status of the bug and add further comments to help improving DesktopNova. Thanks

Changed in desktopnova:
importance: Undecided → Low
