Hi, I wanted to make people aware that I have uploaded Digikam 5.0.0 packages to Debian earlier today.
I uploaded to experimental for staging for a few reasons: 1. To work through the build issues on various architectures. 2. The configuration files are in a new location, but digikam does no migration . To the user, it appears you are starting from scratch and there is a risk of confusion -- the referenced bug is from someone who thought (mistakenly) that a migration procedure was required. The bug also references possibly using a KF5 function KConfig::copyTo() to migrate the files, but then concludes that some digikam 4 settings cause digikam 5 to crash. At this point, it seems that automatic migration is unsafe but that the initial configuration wizard should be augmented with text that describes the upgrade- from-4.x scenario better. I'm seeking suggestions on what might be the best approach here. 3. The showfoto internationalized docs are missing due to an upstream bug . The bug is now patched upstream; however, the fix re-structures the source tarball so it is unclear whether this is easy to port into the current version; or better to wait for upstream 5.1.0 source tarball. Thanks, -Steve  https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=364258  https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=365135
