gthumb raw thumbnailing

Following the experiments with gthumb, now that libopenraw 0.0.2 has been released, I commited my patch to partially fix gthumb bug 145564

I'm wondering if it wouldn't be smarter to bring this feature down the stack to the Gnome thumbnailer.

libopenraw 0.0.2

I just released libopenraw 0.0.2:

tarball - GPG signature

The library has a new .so major number due to ABI breakage.


  • removal of C++ API as they will likely to break. They'll be back once things are much more stable. If you really want to use them, link statically ;-)
  • Gnome support for previews/thumbnail extraction. This is a separate library.
  • Lot of bug fixes
  • Better error reporting

In the mean time, there is now an IRC channel: #libopenraw on irc.freenode.net

And the wiki is growing slowly.
