Nice preview video. It's great to see the progress in Digikam. The best Open Source tool for photo management if you ask me :)

Ordering photos

Now only add manual ordering of photos and it will be the best tool for photo management.

"Manual ordering"? Oh, that'd be so cool! Fiddling with timestamps and names is really crap when compiling a slide show.

Windows compiled version

Please someone have the binary version for windows?

Version for Windows

I think it would make more sense to work on the Windows version of 3.3.0 rather than working on the version for 3.2.0 i.e. to skip the 3.2.0 Windows-version to have the 3.3.0 Windows-version earlier.

Any plans to have this for

Any plans to have this for windows compiled anytime soon ? I installed the 3.1.0 (latest one I found for windows) Can you provide the URL to this version (or a more recent one that mine)?

Thanks

Intermediate versions have their uses

Actually, releasing intermediate versions do have their uses. For instance, it's easier for me to determine what was incrementally changed so I can fix bugs between versions both to prepare for the next version and also later to determine if a bug in a current version existed in a previous version. If I skip versions then this can become difficult. Regardless, 3.2.0 is almost done. I've been fixing bugs, some of which were reported in the 3.0.0/3.1.0 for Windows release announcement page and on g+.
