[Digikam-users] Resizing thumbnails

Hi all,

in digikam (all versions, as far as I know), resizing of the thumbnails is 
done after the size slider has been adjusted to a new position. I just 
realized that a somewhat nicer behaviour can be found in gwenview: You drag 
the size slider, and the size of the thumbnails is adjusted at the same time. 
This looks good and allows the user to choose the size he really needs, e.g. 
to fit some thumbnails on the screen. 
I realize that this kind of polishing is probably not very high on the todo 
list of the developers in the current stage, but will it be implemented 
eventually? Being no programmer, I have the impression that it can be 
accomplished by simply using some code from gwenview - is that right? Or are 
the two progams using the same algorithms/library/whatever to resize 
thumbnails and the present behaviour was chosen intentionally in digikam?

Best regards,
