Simon Frei
Hi everyone,

A lot has been going on since the release of version 5.5.0 of digiKam.
Many of you will already know that pre-release bundles are available and
frequently updated. To get information about some of the changes and new
features since 5.5.0, head to our shiny new website:
https://www.digikam.org/news/2017-05-23-5.6.0-pre-release/
We hope many of you will check it out and test it - thanks in advance!

Cheers,
Simon

I noticed that the refresh after deleting a photo is not done (or not
well), the thumbnail remains, as the photo in the next/previous move,
but blank. It stops the editor working (the editor come on the blank and
do not go further, need to be stopped)

If these problems are "old", may I ask you to look in the bug tracker
whether there is already a report (and update it if necessary) and if
there is not, create a new one please.

small sction about new Geolocation Bookmark Editor.

Hi,

I’m testing a 5.6-pre appimage bundle right now with a ~45’000 image database (converted from iPhoto) on my Macbook Pro 15“ (2013).

One thing I realized is that thumbnails and previews do not (any more?
It used to work with 4.x I think) support my Macbook Retina display. So all images look fuzzy. Text and UI does not.
I have high res thumbnails turned on.

I remember there was some environment setting I could use to enable Retina support.
Does this still work and how do I enable it?

Thanks!

Probably you don't rebuild thumbnails. Press F5 on one album to see the changes.

Here on my Macbook pro, i cannot see this behavior.

Hello Gilles,

thumbnails are visible, but they are not „retina display quality“.
Direct comparison with the exact same photo in iPhoto shows that the thumbnail is displayed with half resolution.
This is independent of whether I have my display scaled or not.

Is it possible to make thumbnails use the full Macbook display resolution?

(Also, the GPS overlay icon is not displayed any more even when GPS information is present. The tooltip is there, just the icon seems to be invisible, maybe a packaging issue?)

Thank you!

Regards

yes, but the thumbnails database must be regenerated from scratch with
the HdPI thumbnails settings turned on. If older DB file still here,
low resolution thumbnails will be used.

In thumbnail database file there are only wavelets thumbs stored, and
no more important information. It's safe to remove this sqlite file as
well and restart digiKam. File will be recreated.

perhaps,

I must take a look. In my TODO list.

GPS icons being shown properly. Please don't brake :)

And which combination of icon theme + widget style + color theme the
GPS icon is not visible exactly ?

Hi,

default theme, default icon set from MacOS appimage. Other icons are there (as far as I can tell). Also the other overlay icons.

Thanks :)
