This beta release contains several important and meaningful bug fixes. If all proceeds smoothly, it will graduate from beta status when translations are updated. I encourage you to download and test it if at all possible, because I am expecting 0.9.15 will end up in Linux distributions like Ubuntu, Debian and openSUSE.
Fixed bug #1829145 where Rapid Photo Downloader could no longer access
cameras, phones and tablets because other applications using had gained
exclusive access over them. Most file managers, including Gnome Files, use
GIO to gain control over cameras and phones as soon as they are plugged in.
Rapid Photo Downloader therefore must instruct them to relinquish control
before it can access the device. GIO / Glib changed the way paths were
generated for cameras and phones in a way that was incompatible with
libgphoto2’s port nomenclature.
Fix bug #1818280: sqlite3 database is locked while adding thumbnails.
Fix bug where thumbnails were not being displayed for jpeg images on cameras.
Fixed bug where scan process was failing to extract sample metadata from
photos, which is needed to determine the time zone of the device being
Fixed bug where installing into a virtual environment on Ubuntu 19.04 would
fail due to not mandating the installation of GObject introspection runtimes.
New Python package requirement: tenacity.
Removed restriction on Python package Tornado’s version limit.
Improved “Report a Problem” dialog window to include more details.
Updated Italian translation.
