gThumb 2.9.3 is mostly a bug-fix release. Several long-standing bugs have been squashed, so upgrading is recommended. Also, audio and video clips are now launched more gracefully using the default external viewer, rather than hard-coding the use of totem.

New Features in 2.9.3

* Play audio clips using default external player

Notable Bug Fixes in 2.9.3

* Fix for "image_loader_start" crashes. Bugs 351959, 386674 + dupes.
* Fixed #378546 - Crash after exiting slideshow
* Launch registered video player instead of always launching "totem"
* Use the default gtk+ overwrite confirmation dialog

Other Activity

Techniques to improve metadata support (exif, iptc, xmp, icc, etc...) are being explored in the new metadata-testing branch. Specifically, the optional use of exiftool is being examined. See bugs 409050 and 408185 if you're interested.

Upgrade and enjoy!
