F-Spot is a full-featured personal photo management application for the GNOME desktop which is the default photo manager in Ubuntu, but it is going to be replaced with Shotwell starting with Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat.
Four weeks after F-Spot 0.7.0, yet another version was released: 0.7.1, which brings better metadata through Taglib, the importer now gives you the option to remove files from the camera after a successful import, tons of cleanups and refactorings and lots more. You can read the full announcement, here.
To install F-Spot 0.7.1 (which is a development version which eventually will lead to 0.8) in Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx, use the following commands:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:f-spot/f-spot-ppa && sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install f-spot
