I send one image with the sidecar file created by Digikam (I hope I don't
saturate mailbox...). I have tried both switches ('Personal list' and
'Complete list') and I have reset the 'Select Metadata Fields to be
displayed' to default values on every tab. I tried also checking every
field with the same results... no info in XMP tab.
I send you also the JPG image processed from the RAW with Digikam. In this
case I can some info in IPTC tab (program, version, date created and time
But I think I have found another problem: I processed the RAW and saved it
as a new version. However, when I select any of the images and show up the
versioning window, the versions tab only list the selected image (no
relation to the processed image), and the 'Used Filters' is always empty (I
have checked that versioning option is checked in the image editing
configuration panel). I have used this functionality without problems with
Digikam 2.5.0 on OpenSuse 12.1, so, maybe I am still missing something on
