Release 0.5.5 - Xycl - 2012-03-07 00:00
Update: Unicode issues with IPTC keywords fixed. Keywords are assumed to have UTF-8 encoding and if not then CP1250 (windows western europe) encoding.
I hope this will fix most of the issues. Tested with IrfanView which seems to use default windows encoding and Microsoft Picture Gallery which displays the IrfanView keywords (CP1250 encoding) correctly but stores in UTF-8 encoding.
Update: "Browse by keywords" replaced by "Browse by tags". IPTC keywords marked with "Keyword:" and XMP PersonDisplayName tags with "Person:"
Update: "No keyword in picture" under "Browse by tags" now correctly working. Error in select statement corrected.
Added: XMP PersonDisplayName tags retrieved.
Added: When adding a new path to the database a cleanup function is called which deletes unused keywords.

I don't know what's the problem but maybe you have installed an external repository which includes a broken version of My Picture Database with a higher version number than 0.5.4?

Great to see this addon ressurected! Thnx.
Together with some picture related improvements in Eden, this addon makes the picture viewing experience so much better.

Upgraded to 0.5.5 and can confirm that the unicode-bug seems to be solved. Great and fast work. The Person: tag seems also to work - at least on my small test selection, will try on the entire collection next.
One problem though - out of my 7 images in the test set, only keywords from a small subsection is actually added to the database.
I've uploaded a small .zip (http://rlyeh.dk/test.zip) with three images; two with keywords that aren't added and one where the keywords are added. Perhaps this will help track the bug.
Update: Just tried adding all of my images to the database, and it seems like all Person-tags are (mostly) added correctly - even the ones where keywords aren't. For testing purposes, I tried adding one of the persons as a keyword on the same pictures, and out of the 1371 images, the Person-tag where found on 1166 of them, but the keywords on the same pictures where only added 96 times.

The keywords are shown by Microsoft Picture Gallery but they are not stored as IPTC keywords. Can be tested with IrfanView.
I'll try to get infos where they are stored.
