## New Features
- Allow to select the GUI language in the preferences
- Add a filter rule to the collect module to find locally copied images
- Add favourite toggle to darkroom modules' right click popup
- Allow blending/masking in the hot pixels module
- Add keyboard shortcuts to zoom and pan an image in darkroom. Panning uses the arrow keys, zooming defaults to `ctrl-` and `ctrl+`. Use `alt` and `ctrl` to change the step size of panning.
- Some minor speedups in the grain module
- Handling stdout on Windows: do not redirect stdout for simple command line arguments (`--help` and `--version`)
- On Windows, show the location of the log file in the help message
- Enable searching in the more modules list – click into the list to give focus to it, then start typing. The default GTK shortcut `ctrl-f` doesn't work as it's used for filmstrip already
- Add a debug print when compiling OpenCL kernels
- Add presets to location search in map mode
- Add timestamps to the output of `-d` command line switches
- Add a compression level slider to the TIFF export module
- Add native binary NetPNM loading, without using GraphicsMagick
- Add a battery indicator for people running darktable on a laptop. This is not very portable code and disabled by default
- Allow to use /? to show the help message on Windows
## Bugfixes
- Use the configured overwrite color profile when exporting from Lua – this broke GIMP integration
- Support presets with `<` in their name
- Fix export to non-existing path with `\` as the path separator on Windows
- Don't insist on the db being locked when it doesn't even exist
- Don't touch the mix slider when resetting the curve in color zones
- Fix a bug in the exposure module that would only allow corrections of up to 10 stops
- Fix custom shortcuts with `shift` modifier
- Properly ellipsize text in the recently used collections list
- Fix exported galeries with filenames containing a `'`
- Fix finding mipmaps cache folder in `purge_from_cache.sh` script
- Fix a crash in the recently used collections list due to a broken config file
- Set the sqlite threading mode to Serialized
- Fix old export presets using OpenEXR
- Fix building with clang on Windows
## Changed Dependencies
- iso-codes version 3.66 or newer is suggested for a nicer list of translations in the preferences.
## Camera support, compared to 2.4.0
- Turn off smooth scrolling for X11/Quartz. That might help with oversensitive scrolling
- Fix reading and writing of TIFFs with non-ASCII filenames on Windows
- Ellipsize background job labels when too long
- Hard code D50 white point when exporting to OpenEXR
- Add tootips to the haze removal module
- Fix a crash when changing lenses while tethering
- Fix incorrect Atom CPU detection on Windows
- Revised performance configuration
- Don't overlay the colorbalance sliders on the left for a cleaner look
- Honor local copy in copy export format
- Make trashing of files on Windows silent
- Fix string termination override on memmove
- Fix a use after free and some memleaks
- Fix a crash in PDF export
- Fix the min color picker
- Don't hardcode '/' in OpenCL paths on Windows
