"Hot on the heels of digiKam 1.0, Gilles Caulier announced the 1.1.0 release of the popular open source photo management application. While the main focus in version 1.0 was on squashing bugs, the new release of digiKam does sport a couple of new nifty features and improvements.

"The first one among my favorites is the new way digiKam displays photos before and after a certain action is applied. Previously, digiKam split the photo into the Before and After parts. The new version offers a slightly different approach. A full-size result of the specific action is shown in the preview pane, and when you hover the mouse over it, digiKam displays the original photo. This is not a huge change, but it provides a better way to preview results as you can see the entire image rather than only half of it."
