Software

Three months ago we did a comparison between F-Spot and Shotwell that showed many interesting things about the two photo management applications.

Since the latest version of F-Spot dated 18 months ago I supposed that F-Spot is slowly being left to die. Apparently I was wrong! There is an interesting discussion in the F-Spot mailing list these days that concerns the future of F-Spot that is going to live after all!

It is true that Ruben Vermeersch didn’t have much time due to work/life and 10 months ago announced that the main development efforts will be in the hands of Stephen Shaw. Stephen wasn’t very active so users started to wonder if F-Spot is dead or not.
