Yes, heise by itself has a really good reputation.

You did not follow my advice to not read the forum ;-)

The forum is known to be just crap (at least most
of the time ;-),  I don't read it).
This is in *strong* contrast to the quality of the journals
published by heise (e.g. c't or iX), which I personally consider
to be really good (IMO they are the best in the German
speaking market).

Anyway, the number of users of digikam will surely enlarge by this
(I just convinced two more these days ;-),
and 0.9 is a really *big* milestone!

Best, Arnd
