    Promote f-spot 0.5 for a feature freeze exception!

    Hi.
    A new and improved Version of f-spot, the default photo managing software of Ubuntu, came out two days ago and has a ton of bug fixes and a couple of new features in it.

    * new sidebar, reworked editors
    * color profile support
    * duplicate detection at import
    * reworked db interractions, with O(1) queries
    * reducing and batching db access
    * light-speed tagging
    * FullScreen mode enhancement
    * new extensions, updated docs, updated translations
    * hundreds of bugfixes


    Especially the new sidebar and the reworked editors are interesting, as they will make it even easier to quickly edit pictures (red eyes, color adjustment, etc).

    Also color profile support seems pretty cool since usually pictures on the monitor screan look bright and natural, but if you print them paper they look not too brilliant.
    Color structures correct the image in view of physical opportunities of devices of a conclusion. So it is is possible to facilitate the life of users and present them too more functionality with adding the support of color profiles in f-spot.

    (taken from: http://code.google.com/soc/2008/gnom...52069810BFAB27 )

    As I think Ubuntu should ship the latest and greatest software that open source has to offer, we should promote F-spot 0.5 for Intrepid.

    Bugreport here: https://bugs.edge.launchpad.net/ubun...ot/+bug/271895

    So get going and comment on the bug.
    Also if someone could come up with a diffstat for the new version would be awesome.

    Thank you!

    Meh. I would if only it had Inotify support. These other changes you mention are OK, I guess, but only Inotify really interests me.

    Bug spam!

    Please refer to the Ubuntu wiki for bug best practices.

    Its better to subscribe to a bug to show your support.

    In the while, if you want to try F-Spot 0.5.0 and you are too lazy to compile it, I packaged it for both Hardy and Intrepid. Further infos and instructions on

    http://www.soccio.it/michelinux/2008/09/21/new-f-spot-050-build-for-ubuntu/en/


    Unfortunately it doesn't want to build on amd64 and I still did not understand why. If you have any idea, let me know.

    Michelinux, 0.5 built / installed / ran for me just fine on Hardy. Does 0.4 build for you?

    Yeah, f-spot-0.5 does not fix any major issue so I hope the feature freeze will be enforced and make intrepid reasonably bug-free

    Sorry, Mr. Picklesworth, I did not try to build any of the 0.4 serie. Are you using a 64bits machine? Have you installed any extra or more updated package (expecially Mono related) that are not included in the official Ubuntu repositories?
    Thanks.

    0.5 actually crashes (a lot) for me on Ubuntu 8.10 (32-bit). I don't think I could support a freeze exception at this point, either.

    rbmorse, are you using a package or have you compiled F-Spot 0.5.0 from scratch?
