Currently me and Marcel we working to backport #96388 to KDE4.

The second stuff is to finalize TimeLine widget and create & new area in
Date view like i explain in my blog :


Below are a couple of points, but before let me mention

Arf, i need an aspirin to find bug (:=)))

Marcel, can you give me your viewpoint ?

Now on to the bigger tasks. Things coming to my mind are:

We will take a look together when i will work on Date View (timeline

B) speed-up/feed-back to users when many images are displayed

Can be complex...


Marcel, there is a big bug somewhere in AlbumManager (or DIO class, i'm not

I have managed during 2 days more than 1500 RAW pictures on my main computer
using digiKam for KDE3 (svn with count of item enabled).

Sometimes, when i move/remove items or albums in collection (generally using
drag & drop), the counts of items is not updated properlly. This is
reproductible ramdomly with Physical _and_ Virtual albums... The database is
not updated in fact. Restarting digiKam solve the problem...

This is not relevant of changes done with patch from B.K.O 96388. I have
tested with 0.9.3 witch not includes this changes, and problem exist too.
There are also few B.K.O entries indirectly relevant of this subject.

With count of items option enable this problem is visible immediately. I
recommend you to test on your computer and give me your viewpoint...
