How to get in contact

Use our mailing lists! Please subscribe instead of just sending mails to the lists - we tend to forget about the moderation queue for unsubscribed mails and they might rot there for some time. We currently have three different lists, choose the proper one for your needs:

  • development mailing list: bugs, ideas, patches, translations - all goes here. If you are interested in technical details, choose this list (can be about 30 mails per day).
  • users mailing list: for all concerns of a darktable user: usage questions, experience reports...
  • announcements list: just notifications about new releases, very few mails.

Join us on IRC! You will find us at, channel #darktable.

Every file released by darktable as of version 1.4.1 gets signed with the GPG key with the fingerprint 4BFF7EAD for the signing part.
