digiKam 0.9.3-rc1 Release

by gerhard

The digiKam team releases 0.9.3-rc1. The tarball can preferably be downloaded from SourceForge.

There is again a new very practical feature integrated:
In the Albums/Tags/Searches/TagsFilter sidebars the is a live filter at the
bottom that lets you search for a string in Albums/Tags/Searches/TagsFilter
hierarchy, much as amarok does it int he collections.

A word on stability. I know that many of you wait until a 'stable' sees the
day of light in order to upgrade digiKam. I will not tell you to do
otherwise. But! I update digikam daily per cron job from svn since 4 years
now. I have never lost a single image, nor have I lost the database or
metadata. And I have 35K images in the album. Bugs are generally functions
that don't work, but they are not destructive. Now do what you want :-)

And of course several bug fixes:
digiKam BUGFIXES FROM KDE BUGZILLA (alias B.K.O | http://bugs.kde.org):

052 ==> 152522 : Support for *.3gp and *.mp4 video files in digiKam (already
supported by KDE video players).
053 ==> 128231 : A way to view pictures recursively in albums and sub-albums
at the same time would be cool.
054 ==> 133191 : Quick search/filter for albums like in amarok.

Be happy, run digiKam

digiKam 0.10.0 for Windows!!

Fantastic - thank you. Until Ubuntu deals with the "not seeing Nikon" problem, I'm stuck with Windows for a while longer. This will help tremendously.
