Many bug fixes in this release, as well as a few improvments:
When displaying the time in the Timeline in a locale that does not use a
twelve hour clock, correctly display the time using the 24 hour clock. If
the times or dates being displayed in the Timeline are not displayed
correctly in your language, please file a bug report.
Fixed a bug where an exception could occur when clicking on some Timeline
entries or displaying their thumbnails as a tooltip. It occurred when the
Timeline had one or more entries in the right-most column that spanned
more than one calendar day. The code that generates the Timeline is among
the most complex in the application. If you notice any problems, please
file a bug report.
When a download device is inserted and downloaded files are already in the
main window, the program will now ask if the completed downloads should be
cleared. A new, associated program preference controls if the program
should query and what action to take.
Improved visual appearance of preferences window.
Fixed a bug where the thumbnail extractors might crash when the thumbnail
cache database had not yet been created, which could happen in unusual
circumstances such as when the disk was under particularly heavy load.
Fixed bug extracting date/time metadata from videos where devices that
create videos from which metadata cannot be extracted until the entire
video is downloaded from the device.
When running LXQt, now assume the default file manager is pcmanfm-qt,
regardless of what the mime-type handler reports. URIs passed to it
now have the specific file stripped from the path, avoiding errors with
pcmanfm-qt opening it. Currently, compared to more mature platforms like
Gnome, LXQt has limitations that limit Rapid Photo Downloader’s

Added support for Peppermint OS to the install script.
Terminate program at startup if the program’s own module imports are being
loaded from conflicting sources, indicating more than one copy of the

Report gphoto2 errors on the command line and Error Reports window with

Applied a patch from Mikael Wiesel to fix a bug where several strings were
not available for translation. Additionally made available for translation
some buttons whose text was untranslated. Moreover, humanized times such as
"one hour ago" (all of which are generated using the python library Arrow)
are now localized where Arrow supports it. Finally, date/times in tooltips
that appear over thumbnails are now localized, and locale date / times are
used in download subfolder and filename generation for values like months.
