Thanks Phoronix for entertaining the confusion darktable/Adobe Lightroom. phoronix.com/scan.php?page=new

No, darktable is not a free replacement of Lightroom, it targets different users and has made different design choices (like enabling fine-grained control). Feeding that comparison is only going to frustrate LR users who may consider switching by setting wrong expectations.

darktable 3.6 is ready to be released tomorrow. For that occasion, we organize a virtual party on hub.link/NWRSaUP starting at 16:00 UTC. Join us !

(The event is going to be mostly in EN, but you can add the languages you speak in your username like [EN] [DE] so people uncomfortable with EN may still interact).

3.6 source code has been frozen today. Repositories maintainers can now build packages for Linux distributions. Official release in 10 days.

2680 commits since 3.4, 6 months ago, 290 issues closed and 954 pull requests handled. Last but not least, an up-to-date documentation at release time !

But only 13 languages translated…

To keep up with the current development pace, we have decided to keep releasing 2 major versions of per year :
* one for summer solstice
* the usual one for winter solstice.

Those 2 major releases will ship new features, while the dot releases (like 3.4.1, which will be frozen next week) will only ship bug fixes.

We still need a lot of translating help for Asian and Arabic languages, the dev team being EN/FR/DE/ES.

3.4 will not be shipped with translations for Chinese, Arabic, Hindi and Bengali, even though they are among the 10 most spoken languages in the World, for lack of complete translation.

Some translation like zh_CN are "only" missing 1257 strings (meaning the rest is already done).

To help translators, we have put up a short guide: github.com/darktable-org/darkt

It's not too late to help translating darktable 3.4.1.

source code 3.4 was tagged today, that means the release is frozen entirely, code and translations, waiting for packagers to build the binaries in the next week. Then it shall be on time under the Christmas tree.

Happy holidays on behalf of all the darktable developers, contributors, translaters and testers !

darktable 3.4 new module : color calibration, get your Christmas lights back in gamut !

darktable is now in feature-freeze state for version 3.4 planned for Christmas day. Translators can now take over (for supported languages, see github.com/darktable-org/darkt - only German and French have 99% complete translations).

It has been a truly crazy month. So much work… Stay tuned for more news.

@eylul I know you have many original workflows I have never seen elsewhere, your opinion ?

Dear users, a glorious patch submitted in June to make the masking and blending fully scene-referred-compliant (and unbounded) is currently being reviewed for merging in 3.4.

We would like to take this opportunity to declutter and remove the output masking parameter, which nobody seems to use. Does anyone has a case to make against this ?
