I had big problems converting from 0.9.3 to 0.10 as the album properties with 
comments, tags, date and album thumbnails were lost. Everything else worked. 
An advice is to keep a backup of the digikam3.db file. I finally managed 
after a lot of trial and error. For me the trick was to have digikam 
overwriting the old digikam3 file using the old directory instead of storing 
it in a new directory. Not sure why! Also, the digikam4.db file was 10 MB 
compared with 3 MB of the origianl digikam3.db.
