Darktable update

Bleeding edge

Fedora core release cycles fast at 18 months. It seem they are slow with the dt updates.

I have it now:

root@math16-16 kernel]# rpm -qa|grep darktable

releases are every 6 months for fedora IE going 34 to 35, but most applications and the kernel are fresh.

Re: Bleeding edge

I was using something called redhat 7 (and 9) before I actually switched to fedora.. Not to be confused with redhat enterprise.. Used Slackwar before that. Probably started at
version 12 or 13?

The package won't be available by repo for a few days, but I used the koji system to get the rpm early... :D

Updated this AM. Almost as much fun as a new camera.

I think it is fun.
Something broke on mine tho! I did some photo exports and my cpu was up to 85C. Very hot.
The opencl stuff was broken. I know the opencl drivers had updated, but I actually had to modify some of the C source files for modules to get them to
compile. It's up and running now and was a fun debugging exercise. Guess if I were more than a hobbiest tho, I'd have to keep some backups of my setup
to make sure it keeps working!

Grabbed a copy from the koji build system for Fedora!
Now I need to take some photos to give it a test drive.

Got darktable 4.0.0 with my upgrade to Fedora 37 a month or so ago, and now see that 4.2.0 has been installed on the last update!
UI looks a fair bit different than 3.8 was.
