f-spot 0.7.0

Unless you don't like Mono, you'll probably agree that F-Spot is a good Linux photo manager / organizer. At least that's what 16% of those who voted in our best Linux photo manager poll think.

F-Spot 0.7.0 comes with a completely rewritten import feature to make it less crash-prone. Besides this, the latest F-Spot also comes with duplicate detection that actually works, fixed Facebook support, uses a lot less memory and reparenting and detaching of versions - a feature that allows you to combine multiple similar photos (e.g. bursts of photos) and many more. A complete changelog can be found here.

But these are not the only changes between the latest F-Spot 0.7.0 and the version in Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx ( Version 0.6.2 which was released back in May introduced lots of bug fixes which are not available in Ubuntu 10.04, so if you use F-Spot, I advise you to upgrade to the latest 0.7.0.

To install F-Spot 0.7.0 (Ubuntu 10.04 only!), simply use the following commands in a terminal:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:f-spot/f-spot-ppa && sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install f-spot
