##The Big Ones:

##Quite Interesting Changes:

  • Split the database into a library containing images and a general one with styles, presets and tags. That allows having access to those when for example running with a :memory: library
  • Support running on platforms other than x86 (64bit little-endian, currently ARM64 only) (https://www.darktable.org/2016/04/running-on-non-x86-platforms/)
  • darktable is now happy to use smaller stack sizes (no less than 256Kb). That should allow using musl libc
  • Allow darktable-cli to work on directories
  • Allow to import/export tags from Lightroom keyword files
  • Allow using modifier keys to modify the step for sliders and curves. Defaults: Ctrl - x0.1; Shift - x10
  • Allow using the [keyboard] cursor keys to interact with sliders, comboboxes and curves; modifiers apply too
  • Support presets in “more modules” so you can quickly switch between your favorite sets of modules shown in the GUI
  • Add range operator and date compare to the collection module
  • Add basic undo/redo support for the darkroom (masks are not accounted !)
  • Support the Exif date and time when importing photos from camera
  • Input color profile module, when profile is just matrix (and linear curve), is 1/3 faster now.
  • Rudimentary CYGM and RGBE color filter array support
  • Nicer web gallery exporter – now touch friendly!
  • OpenCL implementation of VNG/VNG4 demosaicing methods
  • OpenCL implementation of Markesteijn demosaicing method for X-Trans sensors
  • Filter-out some useless EXIF tags when exporting, helps keep EXIF size under ~64Kb
  • OpenCL: properly discard CPU-based OpenCL devices. Fixes crashes on startup with some partially-working OpenCL implementations like pocl.
  • darktable-cli: do not even try to open display, we don’t need it.
  • Hotpixels module: make it actually work for X-Trans
  • Cmstest tool should now produce correct output in more cases, especially in multi-monitor setups.
  • Darkroom histogram now uses more bins: use all 8-bit of the output, not just 6.

##Some More Changes, Probably Not Complete:

  • Drop darktable-viewer tool in favor of slideshow view
  • Remove gnome keyring password backend, use libsecret instead
  • When using libsecret to store passwords then put them into the correct collection
  • Hint via window manager when import/export is done
  • Quick tagging searches anywhere, not just at the start of tags
  • The sidecar XMP schema for history entries is now more consistent and less error prone
  • Rawspeed: fixes for building with libjpeg (as opposed to libjpeg-turbo)
  • Give the choice of equidistant and proportional feathering when using elliptical masks (shift+click)
  • Add geolocation to watermark variables
  • Fix some crashes with missing configured ICC profiles
  • Support greyscale color profiles
  • Lens correction module: switched back to normal Lensfun search mode for lens lookups.
  • Make sure that proper signal handlers are still set after GM initialization…
  • OSX: add trash support (thanks to Michael Kefeder for initial patch)
  • Attach Xmp data to EXR files
  • Several fixes for HighDPI displays
  • Use Pango for text layout, thus supporting RTL languages
  • Feathering size in some mask shapes can be set with shift+scroll
  • Many bugs got fixed and some memory leaks plugged
  • The usermanual was updated to reflect the changes in the 2.2 series
  • Tone curve: mode “automatic in XYZ” mode for “scale chroma”
  • Some compilation fixes

##Lua specific changes:

  • All asynchronous calls have been rewritten
    • the darktable-specific implementation of yield was removed
    • darktable.control.execute allows to execute some shell commands without blocking Lua
    • darktable.control.read allows to wait for a file to be readable without blocking Lua
    • darktable.control.sleep allows to pause the Lua execution without blocking other Lua threads
  • darktable.gui.libs.metadata_view.register_info allows to add new field to the metadata widget in the darkroom view
  • The TextView widget can now be created in Lua, allowing input of large chunks of text
  • It is now possible to use a custom widget in the Lua preference window to configure a preference
  • It is now possible to set the precision and step on slider widgets

##Changed Dependencies:

  • CMake 3.0 is now required.
  • In order to compile darktable you now need at least gcc-4.7+/clang-3.3+, but better use gcc-5.0+
  • Drop support for OS X 10.6
  • Bump required libexiv2 version up to 0.24
  • Bump GTK+ requirement to gtk-3.14. (because even debian stable has it)
  • Bump GLib requirement to glib-2.40.
  • Port to OpenJPEG2
  • SDL is no longer needed.
  • Remove gnome keyring password backend

Nice Xmas present.
Another nice Xmas present to Fedora users that I just noticed, is that Lua support has arrived (so I could have selected Edit in GIMP rather than exporting, when I wanted to print).

This sounds great! Can’t wait to give it a go.

Not at the stable Ubuntu PPA yet for 16.04? https://launchpad.net/~pmjdebruijn/+archive/ubuntu/darktable-release

Like every year, darktable’s new version is the best Christmas gift. Thanks a lot!!

 
#CONGRATS to all Darktable developers :volcano: and thank you.#
 
That cap on top of the logo was the only christmas related thing that made me really smille… very nice pressent like Jose_Luis said =)

It’s been a while since my last DT incurssion, must say that I’ve always enjoyed DT’s tools - specially the ones related with colour - and attentivelly followed the dev procces. Despite there are SO MANY new little rooms in this 2.2 house, the thing that surprised me the most it’s how stable has become; pushed the bastard through the embers of bureocrats’ hell and not a single hicup. So again congrats to all people involved, heartfully; you’re doing a terrific job :turkey: + :fire:

@Peter: PPA has been updated! Just installed and tested darktable 2.2.0 on Ubuntu Studio 16.04 and it works nice! No issues so far.

Thanks a lot to developers who made this happen!

I saw that today. Many new things to try out.

Big thanks to the darktable team! Great work!!

…And, truth be told, the final release actually didn’t affect me that much, as the RC’s were stable enough for me and I upgraded long before the final release.

we’re proud to announce the first bugfix release for the 2.2 series of darktable, 2.2.1!

the github release is here: https://github.com/darktable-org/darktable/releases/tag/release-2.2.1.

and the changelog as compared to 2.2.0 can be found below.

New features:

  • Show a dialog window that tells when locking the database/library failed
  • Ask before deleting history stack from lightable.
  • preferences: make features that are not available (greyed out) more obvious

Bugfixes:

  • Always cleanup undo list before entering darkroom view. Fixes crash when using undo after re-entering darkroom

You may want to add the checksum, @houz

Thats a quick fix - got rid of the modules display error and some other minor display errors introduced with 2.2.1. Cheers!
