Well, The first beta 0.9.0 will be released certainly during april or may, 
depending of finalization of code and free time.

Actually in digikam core, features listed below are complete :

- advanced RAW file decoding settings.
- 16 bits images support.
- Image plugins.
- Image properties sidebar.
- threaded io file access.
- Complete rewrite of image editor GUI implementation (it's really common 
between showfoto and digiKam IE)
- image plugins GUI (zooming, preview modes).
- New progress bar in IE during loading/saving image file.
- IPTC/MakerNote support using Exiv2 library.

Any parts need to be finalized :

- Finalize Metadata support using Exiv2
- ICC profiles management (especially monitor profile support). Paco and me 
will do it in a near future.

- Any files in B.K.O need to be fixed before the beta1.
- DigikamImagePlugins port to 16 bits is uncomplete (see TODO files). Marcel 
Wiesweg working with me to finalize these ports...
- Any indeep tests need to be done using 'valgrind' to check possible memory 
leak problems.
- The handbook need to be updated. There is a large job to do.
- And of course, testing, testing, testing...

I'm trying to post any news when something have been completed to current 
implementation using my blog available at this url :


About stable branch, a 0.8.2 release need to be done in a near future like a 
bugs fix release, especially about the major problem of RAW/JPEG detection. 
Sebastian Roeder will trying to make beta1 tarballs this week if it's
