Professional Photo Management with the Power of Open Source

digiKam 0.9.3-beta2 Release

by gerhard

The digiKam team is proud to release 0.9.3-beta2. The tarball can also be downloaded from SourceForge.

This is not only a bug fix but, due to the development in the KDE4 branch, a few nice new features have been backported to this KDE3 release.

New Features

Two quick filters have been added to the status bar of the main window:

  • A mime-type selector to filter for one of JPEG, PNG, TIFF, RAW, movies or audio files
  • A rating filter to select rated images

A new navigation feature: whenever a thumbnail is selected in the main window you can immediately jump (Go To) to any other of the views where this image is a member of.
Say, you find a photograph in the calender view; then you can through the context menu directly go to the album, search or tag view to find the same image in another group. And vice-versa of course!

Update of CImg library to last stable version 1.2.4
