I'm more than a little concerned that upstream are releasing 
digikam 0.9.2-final, but there are still a number of library transitions still 
occurring at the same time.

Experience has taught us that no matter how small an underpinning library 
transition is it needs time to bed down to work out incompatibilities. I 
suspect there will be a soon 0.9.2+1 release, if we rush too much :-(

Gerhard, Gilles, if possible might I suggest that you don't yet release 
digikam 0.9.2-final, but rather release digikam 0.9.2-rc1, while we let the 
new versions of the underpinning libraries settle down and ensure there are 
no hidden incompatibilities. 

Then if things are working and there aren't problems reported, then release 
0.9.2-final in say a week or two?
