    Great work, thanks you very much !

    Waiting for the deb package to try it.
  3. Hello,

    Didn´t know if my question is on the right place.
    I use darktable for one and a half year now and I´ve been very excited about the great project.

    I have suggestion, please make it possible to use the strg+z mode persistent. I talk about the mode in lighttable described on your website with: "ctrl-z fully zoom into the image and show areas in focus "

    The function I would appreciate to see is
    - hit any key combination
    - have the zoom mode with shown focus areas persistent
    - navigate with arrows through the pictures (perhaps you could scroll through the pictures with the mouse wheel too)
    - use delete button to delete/move to trash the shown picture (perhaps you could map mouse wheel click to delete the shown picture)
    - optionally provide strg+z to undo the deletion/move to trash

    If the function works with the mouse support it would be very easy to sort the best picture out of a set of pictures.

    If darktable could provide these function it would speed up the workflow of many fotographers I think.

  4. Thank you very much for all the work you are doing!
    So it seems like I'm getting a Sony A6000 + Darktable 2.0 for Christmas :)
    Thank your very much for all you are doing!
  5. I'm dying for the 2.0 final version but, anyway, Darktable is already amazing!
  6. Hi Tobias, afaik that should already be possible. Check the preferences >> key combinations, and there under views >> lighttable there you find "short preview with focus detection" (normally mapped to CTRL + Z) and at the bottom "preview with focus detection" (normally not mapped).
  7. Thanks again, wonderful job.

    Hi guys, many thanks for that effort and to give us an amazing darktable 2.0.

    I have a question. I run version 2.0-rc4 on my mac el capitan.
    I cannot export 32bit TIFF!
    Can you fix it?
    Best regards
