The biggest issue for me with

The biggest issue for me with the previous release is that the "email images" plugin uses a scaling algorithm which produced a lot of aliasing/jagged edges. Was this fixed?
Thanks.

yes, i think it is.

yes, i remember a thread about this subject with others developers.

I have kde4-kipi-plugins

I have kde4-kipi-plugins 0.2-20.2 installed from the openSUSE KDE 4.2 repository (KDE factory) and it is not fixed there. Other than that, the "Components information" command in Digikam shows "LibKipi" version 0.3.0 which however doesn't seem to be correct since the version number is too high.

Maybe that can be fixed for the next version?

Fixed in svn

Done with rev. #941222
