Description Michael J. Chudobiak 2007-04-12 12:06:34 UTC
gThumb should be built with libopenraw.

libopenraw provides very fast thumbnailing of RAW photos. If libopenraw is not
present, gThumb can also use dcraw. However dcraw is extremely slow (~15 seconds
to thumbnail an image).

libopenraw is maintained by Hubert Figuiere, who is one of the libgphoto2
developers. See http://libopenraw.freedesktop.org/wiki.

Ubuntu is adding libopenraw.

Although it's far from obvious, all Fedora 7 test bugs should be filed against
"devel", not "test#". Moving this, so it doesn't get lost.

This has been a bulk message. We return you now to your regularly scheduled
program, already in progress.

Just voting for this - hope it is not late to include this in Fedora 7.
This provides a much better experience with RAW photos (that's what all serious
photographers use).

I just submitted libopenraw for review:

I recompiled gthumb with support for libopenraw, and I must say that I was
impressed by the result! I hope that it will make it into Fedora, if not I will
just have to keep a personal version of it...
