first I must say thank you for this great programme. Since this is 1.9 will the next be 2.0? When will that be? I cant wait for Face recognition.


release plan is here…

Windows build

Any idea when next stable windows build be out ?

ask to KDE windows team…

ask to KDE windows team for kde windows installer version.


So there will be no

So there will be no WinInstaller from your site, Gilles? I liked it very much, because it just install what is needed for digiKam. Hope the KDE win installer will be updated in the near future. It’s a pity that this excellent software is not yet available on windows in it’s full functionality.

Anyway, thank you very much for your great work. I really love the software.


make NSIS installer take a while.

In fact i use my KDE windows installation from my laptop to make NSIS installer.

Currently, I updated my KDE windows to last stable, and all is broken…


Crash on Startup

Thank you! I moved up to 1.8 early because 1.7 was crashing on start up…yeah that didn’t help. I am happy to see so many crash on start up bugs fixed. Looking forward to downloading 1.9!

Is this the last version

Is this the last version before 2.0?


… It’s last 1.x version. We are focused to 2.0 now.
