Summary: Editor image cache not flush when an image is modified
Platform: Gentoo Packages
AssignedTo: digikam-devel kde org
ReportedBy: polar88bear hotmail com
Version: 0.9.0-beta3 (using KDE KDE 3.5.5)
Installed from: Gentoo Packages
Starting from Digikam-0.9.0-beta1, the most recently viewed images are cached (perhaps pre-fetched). However, when an image is modified outside digikam, e.g. in gimp, while digikam is running, digikam is not intelligent enough to notice the change in the image and flush the cache. In another words, if I open an image with an external editor from digikam, have the image edited and saved, when I return to digikam and view the image, I still see the unedited version of the image. The only way to see the view the new version of the image is to restart digikam. Which effective flushes all in-memory cache.
