SVN commit 1016022 by mwiesweg: Enable color managed display of thumbnails if color management in enabled. Dedicated setup option comes if profiling shows it has a significant impact, but I found some issues to sort out in the thumbnail loading before. Allow to set displaying widget for thumbnail color management. Extend ThumbnailTask for post processing like the other tasks (could get some refactoring for code reuse in the future) CCBUG: 195050 5 files changed
