Shotwell, GNOME’s Open-Source Image Viewer and Organizer, Gets Important Update

Shotwell 0.27 is now the latest stable release of the application, and some of the best new features included are faster color transformations, a configurable image background, –fullscreen/-f command-line option for the viewer, as well as histogram and thumbnailer improvements. There’s also support for the Meson build system, something that most apps from the GNOME Stack are getting these days, and it looks like Shotwell 0.27 finally removes the F-Spot import support. The VAAPI blacklisting was updated as well for the new video thumbnailer and new plugin structure.
