gthumb 2.11.0 in experimental

  |   Source

Finally, today gthumb 2.11.0 (3:2.11.0~svn2319-1) first appeared on Debian systems. It's a SVN snapshot from svn.gnome.org, so don't expect much stability, even though it is not that unstable as one may think, but upstream hasn't released it yet, so I preferred putting it into experimental. It'll start being very unstable when the port to gio begins.

gthumb 2.11.0 has much many new features with regard to gthumb 2.10.x series. First of all, it uses libexiv2 instead of libexif, thus allowing for much more image-metadata (EXIF) manipulation than now. Please, please, please. Test the new package. To do so, and you haven't ever installed anything from experimental, here are some instructions:

  1. add the following line to your /etc/apt/sources.list: deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian experimental main
  2. update your packages list: # apt-get update
  3. install gthumb from experimental: # apt-get -t experimental install gthumb
