Yorba, the developer of Shotwell has announced a new release Shotwell 0.15, which brings several enhancements:

- Highlights detail adjustment
- YouTube plugin now uses OAuth / OpenID
- Videos in Missing Files now re-import properly
- Improvements when thumbnailing videos
- Numerous bug fixes
Upgrade Shotwell in Ubuntu:
The Shotwell 0.15 tarball is available for download. See the installation guide for information on getting Shotwell on your system
The team has built this release on their PPA for Ubuntu 13.04 Raring, Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal and their derivatives, such as Linux Mint 15 & 14.
To get started installing the photo management tool, press Ctrl+Alt+T on your keyboard to open terminal. When it opens, run below commands one by one:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:yorba/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install shotwell
For Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy, you don’t have to do something special. Just open Software Center, search for and install
shotwell, which is already the newest.
The developer doesn’t build it for Ubuntu 12.04 Precise and its derivatives, because the libraries change so much between versions that it isn’t practical to build on older versions.
