Shotwell 0.12.2 Released!

Good afternoon, one and all,

It’s my privilege to announce the release of Shotwell version 0.12.2.  Among the improvements:

  • Improved handling of and robustness against corrupted tag data.
  • Correction of a major UI glitch that could occur if the user switched away from the camera page while the application was retrieving image thumbnails from the camera.
  • Various other bugfixes.

A source tarball for the project is available from the Shotwell home page at:

Binaries for Ubuntu Oneiric will be available shortly from Yorba’s Launchpad PPA at:

For Ubuntu Precise users, this version should soon be made available automatically as part of the daily update process.

As always, thank you for using Shotwell, and if you have any questions or comments, please feel free to let us know.




One thought on “Shotwell 0.12.2 Released!”

  1. I have been using Shotwell for a while but recently have problems.
    I have a clean install of Ubuntu 12.04 and Shotwell freezes and has crashed on two occasions.
    I used to use F-Spot with no problems but I guess I will now look for another downloader/cataloguer for my photos.
    I wish these things were tested properly before being ‘forced’ on us… Bad application, not worth installing!
