digiKam 7.1 Released with Better Support for Canon CR3 Metadata, Improvements

digiKam 7.1 arrives two months after the release of digiKam 7.0 with various new features and improvements. The most exciting one being better support for the metadata in the RAW files of the Canon CR3 camera. While digiKam 7.0 offered basic support for Canon CR3 metadata, digiKam 7.1 displays more exif information, including colors profile, GPS data, and the standard IPTC and XMP containers. The digiKam explains in the release notes that they put a lot of effort to provide users with richer metadata for CR3 files. However, they said that CR3 metadata changes are only supported through XMP sidecar and there’s no write support.
