Release Notes: This is a comparatively minor update to the stable 0.9.x series. It does not contain the many cool new features and big changes in the git repository, because they're not stable enough yet. Nontheless, it contains 272 commits over the previous release, mainly concerning sse optimization for several plugins (increasing processing speed), updated translations, more presets for plugins, and a lot of bugfixes. An update of the libraries libraw/rawspeed brings more supported cameras and more basecurves and clor matrices.
Release Notes: This release has a few bugfixes on top of release 0.9 (184 patches). Some items: new rawspeed, dcraw, and libraw; fixes for various segfaults and deadlocks; the pipeline is now more real HDR (no more gamut clipping in between); a fix for a nasty bug that could cause complete loss of history for an image; darktable-faster now plays nicely with darktablerc (non-gconf); many opencl improvements; updated translations; and the second part of the GSoC: customizable keyboard shortcuts.
Release Notes: This release has countless new features over release 0.8, such as run-time detected GPU acceleration (switch it on/off during runtime in the prefs), blend operations, a spot removal tool, a low light vision tool, non-local-means denoising (relatively fast for nlmeans, but still slow), a framing plugin (adds postcard borders to match a given aspect ratio), tonemapping is a lot faster now (probably the fastest high-dimensional bilateral filter available today), changed images come with the darktable|changed tag, and many more. The first part of the Google summer of code project is already merged.
Release Notes: This release has much faster image loading due to rawspeed, lots of performance improvements in the caches and pixel pipelines, and GPU computing using OpenCL for a lot of common plugins. The collection plugin was overhauled. A metadata editor was added. Demosaicing is now faster and done in floating point. Experimental HDR support was introduced via bracketing and tone mapping. Flickr uploading was added. Two new languages were added: Thai and Japanese. Lots of new color matrices and white balance presets were added. Lots of bugs were fixed.
Release Notes: This is a bugfix release. Styles are fixed now. Overlong profile names are handled. Exr loading has been fixed. New white balance presets were added. The Albanian translation was updated.
Release Notes: Sidecars are now XMP instead of .dt. libraw was added with dcraw 9.05. Plug-ins of darkroom mode are now in groups. There are new darkroom plug-ins: zone system, relight, graduated neutral density, and watermark. Changes can now be saved into named processing styles. Custom shooting settings can be added in tethering mode. An initial user manual was written, available in English, German, French, Dutch, and Swedish. The XDG config file standard is now used. Language support now includes the following locales: ca, cs, de, es, fi, fr, gl, it, nl, pl, ru, sq, and sv. Image import now works on directories recursively.
Release Notes: This features a tethered shooting mode and the ability to import images from a camera via gphoto2. New and improved plugins were added for vignetting, velvia, grain, denoise, color transfer, channel mixer, picasa webalbum upload, straighten tool, perspective correction, and guide lines. New demosaicing algorithms include dcb, amaze, and vcd. Speed enhancements were made. Nine languages are supported: German, English, Spanish, Finnish, French, Galician, Dutch, Russian, Swedish. There is now a film strip view in darkroom mode for quick image switching. All darkroom modules now come with a customizable preset system with automatic application to matching images, selected by EXIF.
Release Notes: This is another feature release. It comes with newly introduced image tagging, flexible database queries by EXIF and custom tags, a powerful color zones plug-in to selectively alter only some colors, and a French translation. New raw formats are supported through libraw 0.8.5. There is a completely new and simplified light table mode layout, namely the file manager layout. Additionally, there are countless small new features, such as fixed aspect ratio and horizontal/vertical flipping in crop module, spot auto exposure, highlight reconstruction, white balance presets with fine-tuning, etc.
Release Notes: Some dependencies have been made optional, so now a Mac OS X package is available. There are also some minor feature enhancements since the 0.4 release for Linux.
Release Notes: This release comes with many new features, such as lens defect correction (lensfun), internationalization (Russian and Swedish translations), backup files for image editing history and tagging (.dt and .dttags) apart from the database, gconf preferences handling, lighttable mode plugins, libraw 0.8.4 and a low-level option interface from dt, color filter-based monochrome conversion, more sophisticated white balancing, core database layout prepared for the tagging system (to come in 0.5), many bugfixes, and many GUI tweaks and presets.
