Description Paul Verizzo 2010-05-14 16:47:56 UTC
Version:           1.1.0 (using 4.4.00 (KDE 4.4.0), MS Visual Studio 2008 SP1)
Compiler:          cl.exe
OS:                Microsoft Windows (i686) release 5.1 (XP Professional)

At present - at least in the Windows version - when a folder is opened for the first time thumbs are created only for the images that can be seen. Scroll down, and digiKam makes more thumbs, and on it goes.

If you scroll rapidly to the bottom, it makes those thumbs and and leaves everything in between "unthumbed."

Thanks, I guess, but this non-programmer hasn't a clue what that means!

There were a few other commits which I forgot to CC here.
Preloading is now enabled for the main view in SVN.
For me it works well, testing should show that it does not have negative performance side effects.
