From this comment, it seems Shotwell has been forked and the
upstream is no more. I tried gThumb but my concern is the lack of
support for non-destructive editing method. In addition, Shotwell
has an outstanding bug related to Facebook account affecting all
distributions. As Design Suite maintainer using Workstation as a
think it will be time to reevaluate which actively maintained
application should be included as default. I looked at Gnome Photos
it lacks support of sorting folders by date i.e (YYYY/MM/DD).
Yes, Shotwell maintenance ended about half a year ago, after Yorba
fizzled out. I strongly support removing it with or without
I would much rather ship gThumb than Shotwell; gThumb is great.
With my upstream GNOME hat on, our focus now is on promoting our
content apps, including GNOME Photos, which is a core app that we
intend distributions shipping GNOME to install by default. We don't
intend for gThumb to be a core app; that's a more advanced tool. So my
vote is for Photos, even though it's less mature.
We're going to have a content apps hackfest next week in Madrid; I will
mention your request for sorting options in Photos, and maybe it will
happen. (I'll myself be focused on Music, our Rhythmbox replacement,
since I have a lot of music and not a lot of photos.)
