I can't make it crash with trunk and not with svn 1758, run rawstudio 
from a terminal with 'gdb rawstudio' - when it crashes type in 'bt' and 
send the output to us.

That's true, we'll take a look at it...

Hm, that's odd, but true. We'll also check on this...

This feature has been disabled in 1.0rc1.

We've decided on only having 'zoom to fit' and 'zoom to 1:1' - and the 
menubar in top of the preview window were taking up space. There are 
keyboard shortcuts for all actions and split and exposure mask are also 
in the context menu - right click on the previewed photo.

Hm, where did you get the .pot file? The danish translation i made have 
the mentioned keys.

As 1.0rc1 is out, we have frozen our current build. But we'll need 
something to do when 1.0 is done too :)

We've discussed this a lot because of the the A,B,C snapshots. Which 
snapshot should the thumbnail be updated from?
> 2) You should be able to rename the photos.
We've decided not to include those features, because we don't wanna 
create a file manager, but concentrate on raw workflow... That said, 
we'll still have to listen to our users and create features that are 
wanted by the users :)

This is a bug - we had this feature in the old preview widget :)

Hehe, a lot does those accidently clicks... We've talked about using 
CTRL-click to set WB instead. How about this?

We have highlight and shadow contrast sliders on our todo, but decided 
they weren't stoppers for 1.0. You can use the curves for doing this.

We'll see what we can do :)

We'll fix the bugs before 1.0 and add the other feature requests to our 
general todo. Thanks for helping out :)
