Implemented is now the capability to search for EXIF informations in your 

It is possible to search for these tags:
- Exposure
- F number
- Aperture
- Orientation
- Exposure Program
- Metering Mode
- Contrast
- Sharpness
- Saturation

Any others you want?

It seems that all the cameras I have images from, either has F Number and 
Aperture being the same, or only have one of them.
I read on the wikipedia that they actually are different. Have anyone ever 
seen a camera that produces different values for the two?

Please try out the new code and let me know what you think. If you have Exiv2 
installed (which is really just configure; make; make install) and your Qt 
supports SQLite, it should work out of the box.

When you start kimdaba it will offer you to populate the database.

If you are scared of the health of your index.xml file, just copy it to a safe 
location when trying the new kimdaba. I have personally not have had any 
insident with kimdaba for a long time, so I consider it semi safe to start 
using the SVN version of KimDaBa (Snapshots will be made as soon as my 
scripts are upgraded, someone is helping me on this one).
