> Never mind.  After a program restart, it appears to have updated itself
automatically.  That said, the issue is not addressed in the documentation
included with Kubuntu 11.10.  Might be nice to have a brief comment that
the calendar view auto-updates on program re-start.  I also noticed an
option under the Album menu that says "Reread metadata from images.  Does
this update the calendar view, assuming the date/time has been updated in
the metadata?  Again, it is not included in the current documentation.
