darktable 1.4.2 Release Notes
A lot of cleanup was done to allow larger images to be handled by darktable without crashing as often
A significant effort has been made to cleanup some of our code, fixing a lot of minor memory leaks and some corner case bugs in the process
A bunch of masks corner cases fixed
Tonecurve no longer clamps the gamut
Assorted TIFF reader/writer fixes
Map view: only connect to the map server when active
Use filesystem timestamp for images lacking EXIF
Sync AMAZE code from RawTherapee, now with SSE2 optimization, so it’s less slow
Olympus: lens detection for some Olympus cameras should work better now (requires images to be re-imported)
Olympus: focus distance should now be properly displayed for some Olympus cameras (requires images to be re-imported)
SONY ILCE-7(R) garbage pixels are now cut off
Experimental support for Nikon D5300
Experimental support for Nikon D3300
Experimental support for Samsung NX1100
Experimental support for Samsung NX30
Very experimental support for Olympus E-M10 (color rendering is still subject to future change, and may retroactively affect your image library for this camera)
New white balance presets for:
- Nikon D610

For Ubuntu users
Users who are using our darktable-release-plus PPA (which has been deprecated since the previous release) should switch to our darktable-release PPA:
1.4.2 is the last release that will be supported for older Ubuntu versions. All future versions of darktable will only be supported for 14.04 “Trusty” (the new Long Term Support release) and onward
Enjoy and take a lot of photos!
Congratulations for this new release!
Even though the improvements are mostly "under the hood" and remain invisible to most users, I still highly appreciate that the developer team is committed to take good care of the code and also to leverage the advancements made in sister project (e.g. the Amaze code sync).
Keep up the good work!
Does it means that dartable can support x100s in the future?
I've been using using darktable for about two years and I actually enjoy using this marvellous tool. For me it provides the best workflow compared to all other raw converters including Lightroom.
I've got a bit confused by your release statement regarding ppa support. Does that mean, that I don't get any new releases for my Ubuntu Precise 12.04? LTS versions doesn't make sense to me when the software in use does not follow the same rules. In that case it might be better to switch back to Windows using Lightroom (worst case for me). Do you know a workaround?
Non the less thanks for the new release and the frequent updates making this wunderfull tool a reliable partner in image processing.
Congratulations on the latest release and thanks for your continued work on a great application!
Do I need to purge the darktable-release-plus PPA before I switch to the darktable-release PPA?
By the way, could you please clarify this a little bit?
"Olympus: focus distance should now be properly displayed for some Olympus
cameras (requires images to be re-imported)"
As Olympus user I suppose I'm affected, but I don't really know what the problem was...
I'm having some doubt about the installation of Darktable in Mac OS X. Do I have to remove my old version of Darktable and then install the new version? Because I'm having a number of presets in my old version Darktable,is it possible to keep all the preset and upgrade to the new version Darktable?
you have to follow the instructions that you may find at http://www.darktable.org/install/
Go to the end of the page and read "Git version" paragraph
I smell a beer fart.
Lab simply can't product the same results no matter how you shape the curves.
i'd like to see it switchable between lab, rgb and possibly some other system like Resolve's YRGB, just in case there's a use for luma control (i find it too unnatural looking so never use it).
I unzipped it and used the commands
But it woudn't work?Sorry Im new to linux(ubuntu trusty)
The standard release of darktable in linuxmint17 is 1.4 and this works well, also the unstable release from ppa:pmjdebruijn/darktable-unstable is working.
Any idea what's going wrong between LM17 cinnamon 32 and DT 1.4.2.?
In order to continue using darktable you either have to stay with the unstable PPA or remove ~/.config/darktable/library.db and reimport all your images. This will delete any styles and presets, too.

Is it sufficient to re-read the directories or do I have to delete the pictures from the database and the re-read the directories?
It's a long time I'm away from DT since when I moved to a X-Trans Fuji gear.
For now I use the bundled, awful, RAW converter and I make all the changes later
with GIMP/G'MIC. Just recently I've read somewhere there's some ongoing work w/ the
X-Trans. Please, could anybody enlight me a bit more? I've just downloaded the -current DT and it's seems I'm able now to open a X-Trans image...
Thanks in advance
sorry for this late answer, but I spent some days on holiday (without internet).
First thing I did at home was deleting ~/.config/darktable/library.db.
Great, now I can use DT 1.4.2. :-))
Thanks a lot, also to the team of DT for their great job.
Thanks for your awesome work!
If they're not supported, you can submit images to Torsten Bronger's lens calibration service on that same site.
Note that depending what version of lensfun your linux distro installs, you may not have the fully up-to-date list of lenses, though you can get a newer one from Pascal de Bruijn's ppa.
