KDE --
After two years of development, DigiKam 5.0 has been released as the digital photography management software from the KDE camp that's now been ported to Qt5.

The Qt5 port alone makes this a huge release and it does remove around 80% of the KDE-specific dependencies as in the future the developers are looking at making it Qt5-only. The dropping of many KDE dependencies is being used to make it easier to port and maintain this digital photography software on Windows, OS X, and other operating systems.

DigiKam 5.0 also features a virtual trash folder, improved metadata workflow, a new settings panel, a MySQL/MariaDB interface, and many other enhancements.

More details on this morning's release of DigiKam 5.0 can be found via DigiKam.org.
