That's normal with small development teams: they can spend their time 
backporting bug-fixes to old versions, or decide to work only on the latest and 
make some progress.

That said, I've seen the same for programs with big teams: unless a version is 
specifically marked with "long-time support", the advice you get there is also 
"upgrade to the latest version, please".

And in this case, the cause of you having an old version is NOT Digikam, but 
your distro. Although there might be user-maintained repositories with newer  
versions. I know that's the case for OpenSuse: for me the "official" version 
from the distro is 5.5.0, build service (semi-official) provides 5.9.0, and 
appimage runs without problems (for me).
