That’s worth a blog post. The new F-Spot release is fixing the 3-4 year old datetime bug (see http://blog.wbou.de/ … -spots-time-problem/ and the links referenced there.)
Besides this, there are more news and life is coming again into F-Spot’s development. Ruben Vermeersch has taken over the maintenance from Stephane Delcroix.
You can follow the development on F-Spot’s Gitorious Site.
In the meantime, while this entry slept as draft here, F-Spot 0.7.1 was released. There are some problems with Nikon JPGs, so that for the moment it is unusable for me. But the direction looks promising.
