In 2:0.8.2 the number before the : is called the epoch.
It's used to get a normal upgrade when the upstream
is really smaller.  So 1:0.9.0 is smaller than 2:0.8.2.

You are right. Since digikam 0.9-rc2, exiv2 0.12 is required.
That was not soon enought in debian and could later not be uploaded
to sid due to debian freeze for etch.

Debian release managers decided that it's not save enough.
So we had to revert to 0.8.2, because 0.9-rc1 was not stable enough
to release for etch :(

For the time of the etch freeze digikam 0.9 gets uploaded to the
experimental distro not sid.

You can add experimental to your /etc/apt/sources.list and install
digikam 0.9 with

    apt-get -t experimental install digikam showfoto digikamimageplugins kipi-plugins

(since the latest upload, showfoto is now in it's own pkg).

  To me vi is Zen.  To use vi is to practice zen. Every command is
  a koan. Profound to the user, unintelligible to the uninitiated.
  You discover truth everytime you use it.
