General : Tag keyboard shortcuts support.

see full news for the fixed bugs:

this also fixes the geolocation support that has been broken in 1.9.0 in the archive after the upload of KDE 4.7

ISSUES: gphoto2 support is disabled since it causes the build to fail with a DSO error.

This release also ships a new release of kipi-plugins:
GPSSync : Complete rewrite of GUI, including reverse-geocoding feature.
YandexFotki : New tool to export collection to Yandex web service (http://fotki.yandex.ru).
MediaWiki : New tool to export collection to MediaWiki based web service (http://www.mediawiki.org).
RajceExport : New tool to export collection to Rajce web service (http://www.rajce.idnes.cz).
MetadataEdit : Factoring Exif/Iptc/Xmp editor to a common dialog.

which fixes a bunch of bugs too:

Are all these new features relative to the current 1.9.0, or to the previous stable? I'm not familiar with the versioning here, whether 1.9 is a beta for 2.0 (then we should ceratinly update), or a stable release in its own right.

1.9 was the last stable of the 1.9 branch and is \"not maintained anymore\" (http://www.digikam.org/drupal/about/releaseplan) it is from march(!) 2011. so the most of us will forced to use some ppa in an future release of ubuntu to get the latest version (atm digikam 2.1.1).

this is not complaining but quite pertinent information: "...the 1.9 branch and is \"not maintained anymore\" ..."

> won't get it done any faster.

so, it is getting done? Martin was asking about 2.0 above, since then there have been a couple of point point releases and a full point release, so upstream is now at 2.1.1.

i agree it would be a big shame for 11.10 to ship with an outdated digikam.

anyway, keep up the good work packaging types,
