#12335 closed Patch - Feature (fixed)

Slideshow with a season theme would be more interesting

Around the holidays it would be fun for the slideshow to contain more holiday photos, and around birthdays it would be fun for birthday photos to be shown. I'd like to see random photos from the entire year thrown into the mix too, but with a majority of seasonal photos. The existing random slideshow can remain unchanged, with a new "seasonal" option added to the menu.

I've prepared a patch already:

MythGallery: Random slideshow with a seasonal theme

This creates a new mode of slideshow, called "Seasonal," to supplement the existing sequential and random slideshows.
It shows a random slideshow but with a larger weight given to photos from the same time of year.
The feature is only enabled if EXIF support is present.

I also made some fixes to the sequence classes, so that they tracked history better and could run forever without leaking memory.
