I guess you mean the file release 0.19?
I'm afraid not, the file release is frozen for the last release
preparations since some hours.

0.19 is based on a daily tarball which is basically a copy of all image
files. This is unextracted, thumbnails generated, a gallery generated,
compressed into three different formats and uploaded.
The 0.19 file release does not feature any picture info except for
artist and picture. I simply wasn't able to export that metadata from
ccHost -- artist and picture name are in the file name.

What do you mean by you don't want to add them again? Once you added
them of course they will stay but the snapshot of 0.19 has already been
taken so if you upload pictures now they will be added to the release
after 0.19.

no idea. AFAIK OCAL does not have a mass upload because ccHost has none.
