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.
It has some bugs, but now 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.
I also support Gnome core apps, yet Photos not in a stage of development
that will be a replacement for Shotwell, so I think now Shotwell, must
be replaced by Gthumb until Photos will match in functionalities.
We're going to have a content apps hackfest next week in Madrid;
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.)
