Dear all digiKam fans and users!
digiKam team is proud to announce the release of digiKam Software Collection 4.0.0. This version, include many new features introduced by completed GSoC 2013 projects:
There are plenty of reasons to choose Debian, but having the most recent versions of your favorite applications is not one of them. Software updates trickle down to the stable version of Debian very slowly, which means that packages in the distro's repositories are likely to be a few versions behind the current releases. digiKam is no exception: the Debian stable repositories contain a version of digiKam which can be considered outdated. However, if you don't mind the risk of making the Debian system unstable, or even breaking it altogether, you can opt to upgrade the distro to unstable and then install the latest version of digiKam from the experimental repositories.Continue to read
I am pleased to announce the release of digiKam 3.3.0 and 3.4.0 for Windows built against KDE 4.10.2 that can be downloaded from the KDE repository. The build platform is the same as for 3.1.0 and 3.0.0. If you encounter any problems please file a very detailed bug report.

If you happen to use digiKam for managing photos scanned from negatives, you'll appreciate the application's capabilities to add and edit EXIF metadata. Using digiKam's dedicated interface for managing metadata, you can add key EXIF values, such as maker, device model, aperture, shutter speed, ISO, focal length, etc., to the scanned photos (provided you have these data handy).
However, digiKam doesn't allow you to apply the same EXIF data to multiple photos in a single operation.
