we're proud to announce the second release candidate in the new feature release of darktable, 2.0~rc2.

rc2.dmg

packages for individual platforms and distros will follow shortly.

the changes from rc1 include many minor bugfixes, such as:

  • high iso fix for exif data of some cameras
  • various macintosh fixes (fullscreen)
  • fixed a deadlock
  • updated translations

and the preliminary changelog as compared to the 1.6.x series can be found below.

when updating from the currently stable 1.6.x series, please bear in mind that your edits will be preserved during this process, but it will not be possible to downgrade from 2.0 to 1.6.x any more. be careful if you need darktable for production work!

happy 2.0~rc2 everyone :)
