- The entire GUI has been updated so it is now themeable and comes with a whole host of default themes already installed.
- There are also a few new shortcuts so you can toggle things like the histogram, sidebars, navigation modules with ease.
- The lighttable view has a new timeline and is also made to be usable on 4k and 5k monitors.
- You can now also export directly to Google Photos from within the software and create albums if necessary.
- All your tagged photos can be viewed in a hierarchy and are also searchable.
This is on top of making the software more efficient as a whole with CPU and other processing improvements.
