I downloaded it yesterday. Looks pretty good with lots of nice changes.

I still use Lightroom Classic, but since darktable is free I like to keep up to speed on it too. Although I like Lightroom and I have tons of edited photos in it don't like the future uncertainty associated with the yearly rental model. One day I may decide to say adios to Adobe.

Henry, have you tried importing Lightroom edits (xmp files) into darktable?


I know nothing about interoperability of sidecar files. DxO PhotoLab has dop(e) files.

Yes, I saw that 2013 article a few years ago. I checked and the implementation of importing Lightroom XMP files has not been expanded or improved since it first became available.

You can also read the 3.4 manual info about importing Lightroom XMP files here:
