Version 0.9 of darktable

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 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.
