DigiKam has migrated to git
Thanks to the marvelous job of our KDE sysadmins, digiKam is another project to join the git repository. All the code (digiKam, kipi-plugins) that lived in the SVN is no more accessible through SVN and all is part of git now. DigiKam and its dependencies live in several repos, but thanks to Marcel Wiesweg, you can use a nice small script, that will get you going:
1) Edit your ~/.gitconfig as given in
2) git clone http://anongit.kde.org/digikam-software-compilation digikam-sc
Enter the directory
3) Execute ./download-repos
We're planning to release one more version from 1.x branch in about two weeks, the last one, version 1.9.0. After that, all focus will go to the new 2.0 branch, which features new non-destructive editing with versioning support, face detection & recognition, extended geo-location features and scripting support. Second beta of this branch is already out and you're all more than welcome to join the testing!
