Exiv2 starts writing metadata to Canon RAW CR2 files
Andreas Huggel released a major update to Exiv2, a free library and an application for reading and writing Exif and XMP image metadata.
Exiv2 is used by most advanced digital photography tools on Linux, including darktable and digiKam. The new version got write support for Canon's CR2 files and fixes to PNG and JPEG support.
Apart from that it now also reads metadata for a few more lenses:
- Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II
- Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 III
- Tamron SP AF 17-50mm F/2,8 XR Di II LD Aspherical [IF] Nikon lens
Additionally the support for Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 on Canon was fixed, and the Nikon lens database was updated from Robert Rottmerhusen's fmountlens list.
