You want mean exiv2 0.20 or 0.21.

To use these version in digiKam, you need to recompile and install
libkexiv2, the KDE/Qt interface of Exiv2 used by digiKam.

After that, digiKam and kipi-plugins need to be recompiled too.

If you use precompiled packages, try to update libkexiv2 as well.
After go to Help/Components Info from digiKam to see which version is
used in background.
