[Digikam-users] State of progress with image Versioning?

Hi all,
I am a new user to Digikam and *very determined* to find photo-management
software on Linux that can satisfy my needs, if by any means at all
possible, to avoid moving to non-linux / proprietary commercial software.
If so, I will be a die-hard, tirelessly evangelizing proponent of said
software, whatever it turns out to be.  =) Right now Digikam seems to be
entirely the best and most powerful tool, and I would happily switch to it
from F-spot despite F-spot's increasingly powerful and intuitive interface,
+ GNOME integration, but for one (*crucial!*) feature is still obscure to me
which definitely already exists in F-Spot:
*Versioning of images*

I've researched and seen discussion about this feature, such as in this
tantalizing blog post <http://www.digikam.org/drupal/node/526> on June 17th
by Martin Klapatek, but I have not found this feature within digikam
documentation nor in the interface.

The feature in question is the ability to select and group multiple edits of
one image as "versions", which is utterly crucial for serious digital
photographers and others, particularly as relates to combining RAW images
with JPEG/PNG exports.  As I already have a library of images with multiple
versions, it would be important to be able to retroactively select edits and
link them to their "original".

Can anyone enlighten me on the state of progress with this feature, and
whether it has yet been implemented?

Please say it's already implemented!
Thank you!
