Free photo manager digiKam reaches 0.10.0 release for KDE4 and Windows

After months of development and hundreds of bug fixes, the open source photo manager digiKam has reached a significant milestone with the 0.10.0 final release for KDE4 and Windows.

DigiKam is a photo management application similar to Apple iPhoto or Google's Picasa that imports photos from a digital camera and makes them available for presentation and manipulation.

The older 0.9.x series was started in the KDE3 paradigm.

Features include automatic organisation and transformation of photos, image tagging and metadata support, a native image editor, and a plug-in interface for third-party applications like exporting photos to Flickr.

Lead developer Gilles Caulier announced the release and changelog today.

Version 0.10.0 adds XMP support, native Windows support, small screen usability improvements, a new camera capture tool, and new search tools.

As evidenced by the Windows port, digiKam has eliminated its dependencies on X and can therefore be ported to Mac OS X.

The digiKam source code can be downloaded from SourceForge.net. Expect Linux distribution packages to follow soon.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
