"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."
