Dear digiKam fans and users, We received a lot of excellent user feedback after publishing the third digiKam 6 release in August 2019. We are now proud to briefly announce the new digiKam 6.3.0, a maintenance version which consolidates this feedback and acts as an important phase of this 3-year-old project. New GMic-Qt plugin for Image Editor Since digiKam 6.1.0, we open digiKam to external contributions with a collection of new plugin interfaces, named “Generic” for album items processing and export to web-services, “Editor” to extend Image Editor and Showfoto post processing, and “Bqm” to add new tools in Batch Queue Manager.
