I'm not sure what is lost, could you explain a bit more in details?
| The new splash-screen is very nice. The possibility to catalogue videos
| also, although there are some problems when playing them. But this is for
| sure a problem of my configuration (selfcompiled Linux From Scratch).  ;-)
| One other thing: In the dialog for changing many images simultaneously the
| selected properties are a bit confusing: some are selected (don't know if
| these are the settings of the first or last image). What happens if I
| change a property? Do the properties merge with the properties that an
| image already has? It isn't really clear what happens if I apply the
| properties... Would be nice to have back the checkbox "Merge"... Don't
| know, if anyone is able to understand this paragraph... Sorry for my
| English... ;-)
The check boxes are tristate (your style might make it difficult to see that 
though) See mailing list for details on what that means,

| Apart from these few issues I'll love the new release... Keep on the
| excellent work!

Having trouble finding a given image in your collection containing
thousands of images?
