no. libkdcraw will be ported today.

libkipi will be ported this week...

...and after than 0.9.2 will be released, i will start to port digiKam (with
the help from Marcel of course).

like KDE4 release plan said than first release will be done during october,
november 2007, well digiKam will be ready to use for this date.

My first impression is than digiKam port will take several weeks...

Of course, we update current libkdcraw KDE3 implementation to use last
dcraw.c and backport it to KDE4 stuff later.

This just a question of priority.

Personnaly, i think than a digiKam 0.9.3 will be mandatory to clean future
bugs reported by users. updateding libkdcraw at the same time can be a

The problem, from a developper viewpoint is to backport all KDE3 fix to KDE4
implementation. It's a waste of time.

Marcel, please give me your viewpoint...
