The digiKam developers have announced the release of version 1.2.0 of their open source advanced digital photo management application. The latest update includes several new features, such as Album GUI updates, over the previous 1.1.0 release from February.
A number of the image editing tools, including the Colour Balance, Brightness, Contrast, Hue, Channel Mixer and White balance tools, have all gained support for multithreading and a new zoomable preview widget. More than 15 new tools and updates have also been added to the batch manager.
