Fingers Crossed....

I'm pleased to see all those "crash" fixes. I was tagging
250 images yesterday in 1.0.0 and it crashed four times in
an hour (something that I did not experience in the beta
versions). I was going to report the problem, but it looks
like 1.1.0 may have squashed it.

Thanks for you hard work.

Deb packages

Great news!
Are there any deb packages planned?

Try this one, provided by a digiKam user today...

A million thanks!! The best

A million thanks!!
The best thing about digikam is that it actually can compete every single relative windows application.. I really like "sticking" it to the face of my windows-using friends :-) LOL!!!

Back in the Closet for a While

1.0.0 had some great improvements, but I'm back in the
closet at the moment, as I wouldn't want Windows users
to see how often it crashes when tagging photos (twice
more in half an hour last night when I was adding ratings).

That said, it's not losing any information when it crashes
other than the state of the view, so it's not a disaster.
I'll try out that "PPA" repository and see if 1.1.0 will
let me fly the flag again with more confidence.

KDE SC 4.4 compiled package for ubuntu

Does anyone know of a ppa with a digikam 1.1.0 compiled against the KDE SC 4.4 libraries?

Deb packages ready

Debian packages are now available from the usual place:

http://packages.debian.org/digikam

Ubuntu packages

Hi,

What about Ubuntu? actually, the lastest digikam is 1.0.0-beta5 in the synaptic :/

Thanks,

Good job !!!

Keep it up !

But guys, do you sleep sometimes ????

I'd like to help a little, maybe on translation or documentation...

yes, we need help for handbook update...

If you are French, you can contact me directly with email about this subject...

DNG

Has the problem with the dng converter being fixed? It used to not store the white balance correctly, so if you open the created dng file you get an error in ufraw or a wrong wb in digikam/showfoto.

One new feature that I don't like is...

There is one new feature (or bug?) that I don't like.

Now I have to click on icon or press ESC on keyboard to go back to Album View from View mode.

New toolbar is nice but I don't understand why can't we just click on picture to exit from View mode?

Thank you,
Stefan.

because of pan feature need simple left butoclick with laptop...

because of pan feature need simple left button click with laptop who don't have middle mouse button dedicated for that...

anyway, i enabled double click on left mouse button into trunk version. It will available for 1.2 release...

Look the story there : http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=183108

One more question

I compiled it yesterday, and tried double click but that didn't work so...

Anyway I think it's better now. However it's not perfect.

I can't browse images with mouse wheel. Gwenview for example has 'Mouse wheel behavior' in Settings, where user can choose between Scroll and Browse. Do you have plans to implement this maybe?

If I find time, I will probably try trunk version too.

Thank you,
Stefan.

openSUSE packages

Are in KDE:KDE4:Factory:Desktop in the Build Service.

Where's the announcement and changelog for kipi-plugins? I need this before I can get them merged from the above repo into openSUSE Factory.

openSUSE packages for KDE 4.3?

Will there be a back-port of Digikam 1.1.0 without KDE 4.4 dependencies? I would like to upgrade digikam with KDE as provided by 11.2 (no upgrade of KDE to build service versions).

Crash upon rating photos

Unfortunately, Digikam is still likely to crash after assigning a rating to a photo...

I might be able to rate 2 or 3 before I get the Signal: 11 (Segmentation fault) message and have to reload the program. The KDE crash handler reckons the crash information is not useful. I was really hoping that this 1.1 update would solve the issue.
