Cash Costello did a lot of the core improvements and integration work. Greg Froese did the ImageMagick integration plus the view counting and related code. Pedro Prez did the initial photo tagging implementation. Others submitted language files. Look out in the future for some great new features from Torsten Wesolek (including a really nice slideshow).
