The blended histogram on image editor is limited to linear scale. I will 
remove this feature because histogram, Exif info, and comments & tags editor 
dialogs will be moved to dedicaced SideBar on right of :

- main digikam window.
- image editor 
- showfoto.

This way will solve a lot of file in B.K.O. It's planed to next release 
(0.8.1, not 0.8.0). You can see any screenshots at this url :

Hum Exif tool will be extended to the next release, certainly to 0.9.0 : IPTC, 
XMP, etc.

Please make a file to B.K.O about this point.
