darktable 2.0 released


For those people who think Gimp is the only image editor on Linux, here’s darktable 2.0.  I mentioned it briefly before, but never linked to it.  Linux Weekly News has reviewed the release candidate recently.  Have a look at the features page – it’s quite extensive.  If you are more of a visual person, there here are a few screenshots.
