If you're using Shotwell, please sign on to this RFE on the bugzilla.
It would be nice to have the current version supported within the repos.
 (I've tried building from source and it's a real bear!)

Yorba has released Shotwell 0.7.0, a major update to our digital photo
manager. This release includes a host of new features, such as:

  * Migration support for F-Spot users: Shotwell can import photos directly
    from your F-Spot library, preserving tags and ratings.

  * Photos can be rated on a 1-5 star scale or marked as rejected. A filter
    button supports viewing only photos of a specified rating or better.

  * A new Last Import page in the sidebar gives you instant access to your
    most recently imported photo roll.

  * Sidebar functionality and appearance have been improved with new icons
    and inline renaming.

  * Shotwell scans your library files at startup, looking for changes.
    Maintains library consistency when working with photos in other

  * Numerous bug fixes and translation updates.
