Linux News Today: darktable 2.0.3 Open-Source RAW Image Editor Lands with Support for Fujifilm X70
The popular darktable open-source and cross-platform RAW image editor software has been updated today, March 29, 2016, to version 2.0.3, the third maintenance release in the stable 2.0 series of the software.
According to the release notes, darktable 2.0.3 is mostly a bugfix version that resolves a small memory leak, an OpenCL bug in the tonecurve component, an issue in the color reconstruction functionality, the params introspection for unsigned types, and some scrolling problems with the histogram, when changing the exposure.
The restricted histogram issue that occurred when attempting to color pick an area was resolved as well, the error messages displayed in the command-line version of the application (darktable-cli) have been improved, printing is now possible via the Ctrl+P keyboard shortcut, and the software only depends on Glib 2.32.
“We’re proud to announce the third bugfix release for the 2.0 series of darktable, 2.0.3! The GitHub release is here: https://github.com/darktable-org/darktable/releases/tag/release-2.0.3. As always, please don’t use the autogenerated tarball provided by github, but only our tar.xz,” the developers have explained.
