Post subject:  darktable 2.4.0 - and soon to be 2.6.0

The new version of darktable was released on Xmas Eve. Linux Ubuntu version seems very stable to me. Big changes under the hood, less so on the surface. But it does now include a haze filter module.

This version also marks the first official release on Windows! Same version, although it still doesn't have a print module. Haven't tried it - nothing to try it on - but if someone needs a Lightroom equivalent (an admittedly loose description, but the easiest way to sum up its function), and doesn't wish to be commuted to dropping monies in Adobe's direction forever, then it might well be worth a try ...

I was quite impressed with the windows darktable - if I didn't already have adobe I'd be quite happy to use this instead.

But that was just 2.4 Laughing

2.6.0 is at RC1 stage and looks to be on a Xmas release schedule (as has been the tradition for dt).

I found this link which appears to be a proof copy of the to-be-posted-on-Xmas-Eve release document for 2.6. Hasn't made it easier to use understand, but certainly has extended its power to manipulate an image - in the right hands - significantly. This article linked from those RN, and written by the author of the filmic module, goes into a lot more detail.

I've made it through the release notes, but not all the way through the linked article yet Rolling Eyes
