......@@ -21,29 +21,29 @@ After Akademy, a bumper month of new software updates and bugfixes.
The month started with a release of our popular [photo management app, digiKam](https://www.digikam.org/news/2020-09-06-7.1.0_release_announcement/).
Better Canon CR3 Metadata Support, RAW image formats from cameras are often undocumented and hard to process. The developers of digiKam 7.1.0 have written a metadata interface based on libraw for the CR3, and the application is now able to read a large portion of Exif tags, including GPS information, color profile, and, of course. standard IPTC and XMP containers.

A new Batch Queue Manager plugin has been introduced that lets you apply textures over images and another one fixes Hot Pixels automatically, that is, the “bad pixels” you get when using slow shutter speed or working with night images.
[IPTC Information Interchange Model](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IPTC_Information_Interchange_Model) is the old, but still common metadata format used for photos and this release improves Unicode support for it.
digiKam is available in your Linux distro, as a digiKam 7.1.0 source code tarball,, Linux 32/64 bits AppImage bundles, macOS package and Windows 32/64 bit installers. [Download digiKam 7.1.0 here](https://download.kde.org/stable/digikam/).

There are improvements to the stability of heaptrack which make it more error resilient while recording data. Additionally, some minor tweaks to the graphical analysis tool make it more efficient to use. The performance of the analysis step was slightly improved too. Finally, an important bug in the data-diffing algorithm is fixed, which should make that feature more useful again.
