[Digikam-users] Thumbnail location and automatic image backup when editing

Dear list,

I have two questions regarding Digikam:

- Is it possible to have digikam store its thumbnails in another directory
than ~/.thumbnail?
(I store my pictures on an external hard drive; and I would like to store
the thumbnail in the same place)

- Is there a way to have digikam make automatically a backup of a picture
when editing it?
(I don't want to loose the original file)
According to the doc, it is not possible: "Note that once you have saved the
changed version you will not be able to recover the original photograph."
Is it planned for future versions?

(PS. I use Digikam 0.9.2 on a Debian testing/unstable)

Thank you and keep on the good work :o)
