digiKam Recipes 5.0.1 Released and digiKam AppImage Package Coming

Hot on the heels of the major digiKam 5.x.x release comes a thoroughly revised version of the digiKam Recipes book. Although it doesn’t include any new material, the entire content and all screenshots have been revised and updated to reflect changes in the latest version of digiKam. In addition to that, some obsolete content has been removed. But a shiny new book cover featuring catchy colors makes up for that.

Speaking of digiKam releases, the upcoming version 5.3.0 will be available as an AppImage 64-bit package. Continue reading

digiKam 5.0.0 is published...

Dear digiKam fans and users,

After two year of work, the digiKam team is proud to announce the final release of digiKam Software Collection 5.0.0. This main version introduces a new cycle of releases, which will be shortly released to quickly include all the fixes reported by end users.

This release marks almost complete port of the application to Qt5. All Qt4/KDE4 code has been removed and many parts have been re-written, reviewed, and tested. Porting to Qt5 required a lot of work, as many important APIs had to be changed or replaced by new ones.

Currently, the appendix contains information about chroma subsampling, cor (bit) depth, hue, saturation, brightness, and vibrance. I plan to gradually expand the appendix with time.
