// by Dmitri Popov

New year, new digiKam Recipes book release. The new version features the completely rewritten Tag faces with the Face Recognition feature chapter and an all-new example workflow section in the Batch process photos and RAW files chapter. Several chapters have been revised and improved, including Edit tags with Tag Manager, Color management in digiKam, and Move digiKam library and databases. All screenshots have been refreshed, too. As always, the new revision includes plenty of tweaks and fixes.

New digiKam User Documentation

// by digiKam Team

Dear digiKam fans and users, A new year means new goals, and this one is a challenge: migrating the old digiKam documentation based on DocBook format to a new architecture, more simple and easy to maintain. After 20 years, we left the DocBook manual for the modern Sphinx/ReStructuredText framework. This one is really a pleasure to use by documentation writers. The content is published in a dedicated web site, internationalized by the KDE translation teams.
