I know this is the road to the future, but 32 bits computers are still 
very numerous, it seems that there was 10 years ago a class of computers 
extremely strong, when I see how many are still there.

I even have on my desk a quite new (one year old) windows computer with 
64 bits processor... but a 32 bits windows, and reasonably fast, enough 
for digikam, for sure.

I know openSUSE Tubleweed will keep a 32 bits version for some time, 
Ubuntu may have a 32 bits LTS, Debian I don't know

if you could keep 32 bits for 2 years from now, I guess it could be 
usefull, but it may not be really important to ad new features to this 
version, only port the security patches

thanks for the great work!!
