Hi, possibly not present in previous version, and I'll look at that in future
but for now if you want to test the git version that would be the best thing.

Should have no impact, just be sure to backup your $HOME/.kde*/ , expecially
.kde/share/{apps/digikam,config/digikamrc} (or better setup a new test user).
Also backup the digikam database

there is a tutorial at http://www.digikam.org/drupal/download?q=download/GIT
but if you want to install as user (which is less invasive) follow these steps:

8< 8< 8< 8< 8< 8< 8<
cd # go @ home
git clone http://anongit.kde.org/digikam-software-compilation digikam-sc
cd digikam-sc
# the following a bunch of things namely:
# digikam libkface libkmap kipi-plugins libkexiv2 libkdcraw
# libkipi libksane libmediawiki digikam-doc kipi-plugins-doc
# it's ~ 300MB download take some coffe
# if you already have all dependancies installed you're ready to build it:
mkdir build
cd build
cmake \
    -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debugfull \
    .. \
&& make -j2 \
&& make install
# time for another coffe
8< 8< 8< 8< 8< 8< 8<

To be able to run digikam or showfoto from ${HOME}/usr you need to set some
environment variables and to rebuild some caches, I've a script that does it
for me:

8< 8< 8< 8< 8< 8< 8<
#! /bin/bash

export DIGIKAM_DIR=~/usr
# update KDE's system configuration cache
# start app
digikam $@
8< 8< 8< 8< 8< 8< 8<

kbuildsycoca4 is long and not really needed if system isn't changed from latest
kbuildsycoca4 run, but better safe than sorry. The same script apply for other
programs, replacing the last line "digikam $@" as appropriate.

time for enjoing the new splashscreens committed some hours ago ;)
